Painting Skills Enhance Home Study Project
I was happily meandering through a very historic village that’s quite near me, on a walk with some pals. We were chatting away and very nearly had an embarrassing mishap by almost bumping into and knocking over a lady who was sat in the middle of the village square, painting. Her subject was the local memorial statue with the beautiful 13thC church in the background. We were apologetic and started chatting to her. She was on the practical element of her home study course she’d signed up for and it sounded absolutely fascinating. The course itself was full of arty, creative subjects and involved visits to museums and galleries – but her main interest centred around landscapes and townscapes in acryllic paints. It turns out that this lady was quite experienced at e-learning as a means of enhancing her life skills – she’d studied to e a legal secretary some years ago and it had proven to be a most advantageous choice of career. Amazing how online learning and home study can really bring out skills and interest in life.
