Hi everyone,
I just start my drawing lesson here, new to art, nervous. :-)  A bit about myself, I come from China, settled in Wellington 6 years ago. Love this city, the coolest capital in the world. I always want to learn drawing, finally made up my mind taking up lessons with paint basket.  Lovely community, I don't feel I am alone now, I think I am going to enjoy my new adventure.

Looking forward to learning from you all.

 :welcome:  Alice!  Don't be nervous, you're in good hands.  The drawing course is great.  You'll be amazed at how well you do.   :promise:
