EVENING CLASS AT FORFAR ACADEMY 2015/16

I always encourage learners to keep all their first attempts at learning.

Firstly because people learn a lot from their mistakes, so having the mistake in hand at that “how did I sort this one out last time?”moment really helps jog the memory.  Secondly, because it is such an encouragement to see how far you have come.

I asked the students to bring all stages of their work in at the end of the course to show off their progress.  Here are some photographs of the work they produced.  Thank you for allowing me to use your photos, and my apologies for not getting them posted sooner.

Puzzles and frustrations of a blogging beginner

OK – After what seems like forever, I am still learning how to blog.  Yesterday I learned that galleries don’t seem to work very well.  The pictures looked small and uninteresting and didn’t display at all in facebook.  Just a big blank space – which did have a link to the gallery page, but it took ages to load.    Now I understand why people post one photograph at  time.  So, please be patient with me as I learn.
