What did you see?
Various paintings displayed on the wall in the art gallery.
What were your first impression?
At first, I was quite nervous because it was quite intimidating as most of the people who were participating were adults and they were very experienced, but this also pushed me and inspired me to do my best. Overall, I found the workshop quite organised & very focused.
Did you find anything interesting personally?
I found these flowers quite interesting because of the detailed designs. The artist here painted various flowers normally seen during different seasons. This showed that the artist might have taken sometime to finish the painting as the flowers were very detailed.
What did you learn which you will help you to achieve your challenge?
I was inspired with all the paintings I saw, and I’m inspired to combine all my ideas together.
Did you enjoy the experience overall and why?
To summarise I learnt a lot of interesting facts and gathered a lot of new information and the experience was fun & I enjoyed by days at the National Arts Gallery.
