I have been going to Art Class in Hornsey for about ten years. I was a total beginner, having never painted or drawn in my life, but had always loved Art. Dubravka encouraged me out of my comfort zone and persuaded me to present paintings for her termly exhibitions. Each term she brings new ideas and techniques, and introduces us to a range of artists and styles. We can take our lead from her, or go off on our own track.
I gained so much confidence that I built up a portfolio that enabled me to gain a place on, and gain, an Art Foundation Diploma. I have attended many art courses over these years but always return to Dubravka. She inspires, educates and encourages us. She has a great eye that can always show us how to improve. Now that classes are also available on Zoom, I have returned and found it a great help to progress with my artwork.
