Encouraging Art Students

Successful experience in all aspects of creative activity and expression depends enormously on confidence, a strong sense of self and hard work. To take on a range of demanding artistic challenges, students need to be supported and encouraged in everything they undertake. All students require self-confidence to be willing to continually expose themselves to different art experiences and to openly express their ideas in their artworks.
