This was my first group. I had understood that they would be bringing their own watercolour painting materials – but they had none. I quickly learned to expect anything, and whatever was on the schedule would be subject to inevitable change. So I managed to supply conte crayons and charcoal and paper and then shape my teaching around getting light and shade into a painting. We all went outside to look at each others work.
I am grateful to Tindalls of Cambridge who gave me £100 worth of art materials to give away. This started with this group. They had so little to work with.
