Great library knowledge - as I've hosted them!
As an SKA host, I've been involved in the vast majority of shows. I therefore feel confident that once we have our chat, I can recommend art workshops that will suit both your interests and ability level.
As for my own level of art, as well as hosting these shows, I got an A at A-level art and then went on to graduate in Architecture from Bath University - so I have an eye for what works and what doesn't!
My more recent artistic endeavours have been focused more around online web design and computer illustration (adobe photoshop and the like). Recently, I've also started to become familiar with AI art - something that really fascinates me.
If you'd like to connect with me as your buddy, I'd be happy to lend a helping hand and recommend some great workshops. Keep those brushes wet!
Awaiting first buddy-up feedback
