Almost ready to give up on art following a less than pleasant experience with previous art lessons, I came across Jenny Cass at Red Bird Studio. Jen took me under her wing two years ago and I have been attending her art lessons at least once a week ever since.
Jen allows each of her students to create their own individual artworks using their choice of topics and medium (eg acrylic, watercolour, graphite pencil, charcoal, pastels etc) while teaching us different techniques as we complete each piece. Jen allows us to be ourselves as artists – to express who we are in every piece we create.
Jen has such a realistic and encouraging view of what art is. You do not have to have any previous artistic experience to be a successful artist. Most of us didn’t believe we had much artistic talent at all until we met Jen. Somehow she is able to fill you with confidence and encourage that ‘inner artist’ to be released from deep inside.
I thoroughly enjoy my time creating art at Red Bird Studio – it is freeing, relaxing, therapeutic and enjoyable. It allows me to blow out the cobwebs that have built up from the week that was and puts me in a positive state for the week approaching. I find it quite meditative and soulful.
I cannot begin to tell you how lucky I feel to have found Jen at Red Bird Studio and how thankful I am to her for all that she has taught me. It has been, and continues to be, a wonderful journey and such a positive experience. Thanks Jen!
