When I pursued this in a formal manner, hoping to encourage the Arts Council to be clearer and fairer and considered , they refused to engage further but instead directed me to their formal complaints procedure.
We encourage you all to continue drawing and when we are allowed back in contact with each other we’ll be delivering a series of special events and offers, not to encourage you to get back out with us, we don’t think there’ll be much need for that, but to celebrate the wonderful community of artists that we have become.
A pair of giggly friends came for the first time, one a seasoned creative, the other a total newbie, exploring this discipline, totally inexperienced; sometimes it requires as much much bravery on the part of artist to see themselves move through the creative process as it does the model to allow themselves to be seen unfiltered.

Surely, if we wanted to get through this quickly and with minimum impact we would be ‘confined to quarters’. All of us.

Total lockdown, although economically crippling, would seem the swiftest way to get through this.
