“(the film) made the children realise that art is not just about drawing and painting – it has opened their eyes to the possibilities in art.” 

“They (the pupils) felt a sense of freedom when creating their own work (after watching the film), they were free from the idea that their art should look like an exact replica of an object or scene.” 

“Schools have had to rethink their curriculum and will have to continue to do so in the new year, and this type of contact with an artist allows the children to continue to meet and be inspired by artists.”

“[from the film I learnt…] that you can do anything if you set your mind to it.” 

“I feel inspired and it makes me want to do more art.”
