A group from Halas Homes visit Creative Connection at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on September 1st 2015 and are inspired by Hiroshige’s Japan exhibition and make digital pictures with guidance from artist Jason Wilsher-Mills.
This is what people who attended said about the Creative Connection workshop by ipad artist Jason Wilsher-Mills:
It was very good and I enjoyed every minute…I feel everyone who took part in today’s art and digital use class have been inspired by what they have been shown and learnt today and I’m sure they have been given the incentive to learn more. A fabulous experience for all of us…I loved the drawing and the pictures in the gallery.
Importantly it was accessible and people said…
Very good day all round very accommodating and helpful, friendly and obliging all our clients enjoyed the day very entertaining every detail was explained well great day all round thank you very much.
