As someone who has little experience with art, Sue made me feel comfortable and adjusted her teaching in order for me to access the content.

Fantastic hands-on activities that built sequentially and established trust and collaboration. An excellent resource for ideas that could each be extended in the classroom.

Very hands on. Practical tasks we can use in the classroom. The sequence allowed us to take risks, loosen up and be free with the materials.

I really enjoyed the experimental nature of the course and that it pushed me out of my comfort zone in doing collaborative pieces. I appreciated the drawing and learning to use white as the subject matter. I’ve come away with a lot of ideas.

She is so knowledgeable as a teacher and artist and shared this beautifully with us. She gave lots of examples of how we could use each approach and shared her own work as well as other artists. I loved the balance of teacher, artist. I loved it and feel very inspired. Now, I just want more! I also loved the primary and secondary together.

The ideas conveyed were very helpful and would certainly be helpful in the classroom. Creative breaking boundary for students who have preconceived ideas of what drawing is.

Sue presented an excellent course with so many strategies and approaches for experimental drawing and traditional drawing techniques. I will definitely be using all these different approaches in my classroom and refining our school programs to include these. It was a very enjoyable and inspiring day.
