Impressions by attendants

"I just wanted to thank you for organising another wonderful weekend of dissection drawing in Antwerp. It was my second visit and I've taken so much inspiration away with me, I almost don't know where to start! I'm currently in my final year at the Royal College of Art in London and I'm sure that the experience will emerge somehow in my final show in June. I really appreciate the time and effort you put in to arranging our accomodation, meals, transport and the drawing marathon itself."
