ENJOYMENT AND EXPERIENCE
"I enjoyed meeting the Artists and hearing them discuss their work. I also enjoyed seeing the various painting techniques"
"The experience was great, I was slightly nervous about meeting the artists but they were all so friendly…. Seeing the artwork was impressive…. Looking at the techniques has helped me with my own work. I really enjoyed the visit."
"The building was amazing. The high ceilings, massive doors, each room was impressive and surrounded by artwork was lovely."
"I thought the layout of the building was very interesting and allowed for better viewing of the paintings as they were spread throughout instead of being in one hall"
