     Lessons with Liz Million

We had a fantastic time when Liz Million visited us at Vane Road when we did some great art work. It would be good to continue some of that learning at home. She has recorded a drawing lesson - https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=521859408490633 and has also given us some templates and resources to help you out.
