Expect many pictures of squiggly lines and frustrated brushmarks. It's not until the 23 of September so I could always try and practise beforehand. After consideration, the course probably won't be a great conversation piece: "So what did you do at the weekend?"
"I stared really hard at naked strangers...and got my hands all dirty with charcoal."
Still, I think I'll enjoy it.
