CLASSES AND WORKSHOPS
I believe that everyone can draw and paint. Mostly, your success is dependent on not being too harsh on yourself and not wanting to be a Rembrandt at first try.
One of my students recently said on a Facebook post : Noel Miller is so brilliant! He doesn't teach as such, he facilitates you're ability!
Thanks to the student for those lovely words.
My reason for putting the above statement here is: that is exactly what I try to do. Facilitate the ability that everyone has. At your own pace, in your own time, with a feeling of enjoyment. That is what being an artist means to me.
