My son is 12 and has been attending Artspiration for almost 5 years now. His natural talent has developed significantly during this time and his knowledge of artistic styles has increased.
Shalini allows artistic ability to flourish unabated but she is also always available to guide, encourage and motivate her students.
Her teaching style has been instrumental in Akil's increased confidence in relation to approaching new and challenging tasks and it is noticeable that he is a lot more self motivated in regards to starting new pieces of work. Shalini's vast experience is evident, however it is also her warm personality and passion for teaching which makes her classes such a rewarding and enjoyable experience for the children.
Artspiration encourages the children to exhibit their works at the annual Art On The Street in Maidenhead. My son has participated in this event on several occasions and has been able to sell a number of his works, which gave him an insight into entrepreneurship and fuelled him with the confidence to produce more intricate drawings. He was quite surprised to discover that others appreciated his works and were willing to pay for them.
I can honestly say that Shalini has drawn out the creative genius in my child and he is producing work that he never imagined he ever would. So thank you Shalini for developing Akil's hobby into a passion which is all over the house!"
