The SBA Distance Learning Diploma Course held its Introductory Seminar for students of Course 17 at the Art Workers Guild in London last weekend. It is always exciting to meet the students! Course Director Simon Williams welcomed everyone, and tutors Penny Brown, Susan Hillier and Shevaun Doherty were there to demonstrate techniques and to give out useful tips on completing artwork. A big thank you to Pam Henderson, SBA secretary for organising such a great day!! Everyone went home smiling and feeling inspired!!
