“A very dynamic experience…the best I have encountered…from which I learned a lot”

Big Draw participant



“I was able to embrace a new side of creativity which I had never encountered before and never so passionately conveyed. Being able to openly talk about what art means to artists and how important it is to be expressive and different, was really beneficial in relation to the work I was doing in school. ..”

 “You’ve been a fantastic teacher in not only art but life as well.”

“… I felt that I was beginning to feel the power of this place.  This power came forth with a burst of colour and energy on the second day and I realised that everyone involved was being engulfed in this artistic energy which was flowing through their art.  I felt as if all of us with Iona’s delightful teaching had taken us into a world which will stay with us for a long time.”
