Lynn hosted a fundraiser event 'Drawing a Portrait'.
It was a fun way for first timers to discover their hidden talent, also enjoyable for those with some experience.
the tutor demonstrated step-by-step on an easel the proportions of a face - making it easy to follow.
Then encouraged us to add character to our own drwaings. It was a most enjoyavle relaxed and fun time.

Lynn is one of the most honest people I know. She’s real and reliable, trustworthy and committed to people and causes she cares about.
When she says she will do something she will do just that; it’s on this ground that I would encourage anybody who wants to embark on this journey to trust that they would not be disappointed. Jo H

The Art Night was really good.
I enjoyed my time with the group learning portrait drawing techniques.
The event was professionally held and I felt really welcomed. I would definitely recommend it to people who want to develop their drawing skills and just come and have a fun evening. Krista M

I am nortoiuosly bad at portrait drawing however, my first attempt went better than I thought!!
Lynn made it a lot of fun and helped me to take myself less seriously and to be pleased with my attemts. I spent a lot of time chatting to others I hadn't met before the night and we all had a relaxed time laughing challening and sharing together.
It atactually made me want to do more art during the week!
