"When I go to the art workshops I find them interesting and really enjoyable. Not only do I learn new techniques from the teacher but also from the other students. I really enjoy doing art at lunch because it allows me to relax and have some fun with my friends as well as improving my work and learning new things." Esha Manoj

"I use AS2 two to three lunchtimes a week to work on my larger pieces such as chalk and charcoal which would be ruined if I tried to work on them at home. It doesn’t really feel like work as it’s a nice relaxing atmosphere: we always have the radio on and everyone gets on really well." Amy Young
