I felt like this workshop really allowed you to dive in and not be afraid of potentially making ‘bad art.’ I also think that being allowed to use whatever art supplies you got is a big positive.

I learned so much from Prof Lieu and my fellow students, not only how to improve my own work, but also about the process on refining art in general and focusing on the goals for each piece.
