“Let the child inside you play.” I hadn’t anticipated how little confidence we have in ourselves and how this can stop us from doing something we might actually like. I ran the first Art Classes for Beginners in our village hall with a boiler room for a basic Art cupboard in a small village by the sea; it was a change from my city Amsterdam. You don’t need to live in a city to learn to draw, but I had to be resourceful with the demanding weather, challenging locations and unreliable subjects. We never drew crawling lobsters at Art College. I’m spontaneous and like a performance. “It was all such fun and you managed to encourage every one of us!”
