"Event surpassed my expectations"

1st November 2018

We are most grateful to Claire for writing this review:

Kerry Ingham's 'Drawing for Relaxation' sessions at Burrswood have surpassed my expectations and I highly recommend the experience for all abilities. 

Kerry, a professional artist and counsellor, warmly welcomed participants with a clear description of how the session was structured and lead us in our own explorations during the day. Any of our plaintive cries of "I'm not very good at drawing/art" were heard and then gently challenged accordingly! Each observation and drawing part was framed with a helpful 'pause and grounding' moment; and this was peppered with delicious Burrswood fayre of pastries, salad and cream teas. Each group bonded beautifully and we were encouraged to look and respond to each other's work too. It is a credit to Kerry to say even my fifteen year old son felt totally at ease and 'in the artistic flow' despite being surrounded by us ladies of more advanced years! 

I would attend another DfR session with enthusiastic anticipation. Claire White
