Alyth Life Drawing Group
These workshops are held on Tuesdays in Alyth Community Wing, St Andrew's Street, Alyth
Workshop Host: Alyth Life Drawing Group
The Alyth Life drawing group requested that their stART OOT master class series focused on drawing heads, hands and feet.
Participant comment “This workshop has changed my life forever—its been a lifetime ambition realised!”
Comment by Gail Balie:"The workshop was
advertised around the town by flyers that I had made up although
most of the girls who attended were girls who already attended
our youth clubs.
There were 17 participants in total aged 9-19 years old (all girls). The girls all really enjoyed taking part and the thing that surprised them most was the fact that they could not believe at the beginning of the session that they would be able to make realistic looking wounds. However after a few tips from Susan they were soon on their way to creating some of the ugliest looking burns, cuts, black eyes and scabs that I have ever seen. Being able to see the results of their own work really pleased them."
