Good point about enjoying art post school. Loved drawing but my school hated my work, rather disturbing was a frequent comment!

Must dig the old sketch book out and leave digital stuff alone for a while!

Is the etching print Chester? Or posh Liverpool lol.smiley - cheerssmiley - applause

smiley - laugh Yeah, I think it must be difficult for teachers to assign marks to students' work, but I'm sure they could be more encouraging... h2g2 certainly appreciates your artistic work, though! You're an asset to the Guide smiley - ok

For this Entry I went sketching in Port Sunlight A87831778

Yes, well done – I hope you keep us updated smiley - artist

I too didn't enjoy art at school. Being colour blind I just wanted to draw in black and white but the teachers always insisted that I coloured everything in, and then would humiliate me by saying loudly how I'd colour what I hadn't wanted to colour-in in the first place wrong.

That is terrible...

Adult learning art classes seem to be much more mature in more ways than one - another one I went to, the tutor told the story of a disabled person he knew who took up art. One of the class members piped up something along the lines of, "Aahh, how lovely that the disabled person did art even though what he produced must obviously have been rubbish because of being disabled". The tutor then explained that the person's disability actually enhanced his art because it allowed him to paint in a way that was distinct from 'normal'...

So there! No such thing as 'wrong' smiley - artistsmiley - magic
