A Proud New Learner

One of my newest members to one of my classes is ‘Charles’ from Menheniot, ‘Sue’ his wife, has been coming to my classes for many many years now and Charles has driven ‘Sue’ to and fro classes ever since she started.  Many of you will know Charles as he helped me greatly in the Student Art Exhibitions we had in Menheniot.

‘Sue’ has been very poorly but was determined to continue painting and came back to class this September after missing a few terms, ‘Charles’ decided that he would join ‘Sue’ to keep her company in class and keep her in check, as she can be a proper noisy one (ONLY JOKING SUE).

He was somewhat nervous when he arrived and as you do I, dropped him in the deep end, by getting him to paint one of the scheduled exercises the rest of the class was doing.

I thought that would send him running, but instead he excelled and did himself proper proud.   What a delight to see him get such pleasure out of his new hobby, he completed a snow scene painting which he has had printed into a Christmas Card and has had the painting framed as well.

Here he is proudly showing off one of his paintings that he has had  framed ready for a Christmas Present for his Mum.

Well Done Charles.
