My second life drawing workshop at Ventana - such an enjoyable and absorbing couple of hours, with freedom to try out my skills - no anxiety about being a “newbie” alongside others with more experience. Thanks Ventana!

Awesome creative gallery show-casing an inspiring creative community. I popped in on my way over to Tora for a surf weekend and had an awesome chat about community art while looking around all the beatiful creations. Looking forwards to joining a workshop! Liv
