  1. I am already enrolled but would like to know this week what materials I need to purchase as not many opportunities to visit an art shop

  2. Amazing. I enrolled in the course although I'm very busy for the moment. I'm happy to know that such a thing exists and I wish I can save up to come to Australia and graduate in it.
