'My aim is to communicate to each of the students that I believe they are unique with their own visual language arising from their own observation, experiences, emotions and thoughts. They are encouraged to develop in confidence. The students discover, much to all our joy, after being introduced to the resources, technical skills relating to the mediums of drawing, pastel, watercolour and acrylic and also aesthetics (basic composition and design eg colour), that they indeed are and can be different in their ways of visually expressing themselves as part of the creative process'.
