Sample Answer 1

Band 6.5

Dear Sir,

I am sorry to say that I am very disappointed by the quality of services provided by your college staff and management during the Fine Arts Workshop for one month in the evening, which is quite poor.

This course is divided into two sections. The first section is about live modal study for two weeks, and the second section is about live landscape study. I pre-booked my seat for this for 7000 rupees. From the advertisement in the Times of India, I came to know that all the materials regarding painting would be provided by the college staff, especially canvas, colours and easels.

Unfortunately, the canvas roll was less in quantity, and it was not distributed properly among all students. Moreover, they provide a very limited number of colours, which makes portrait and landscape work very difficult to complete. Moreover, on the last day of the workshop, there was no certificate of participation.

I requested it several times to the staff, but they ignored it. I hope that you will look into the matter seriously and next time provide this course free of charge, with an appreciation of participation.

Yours faithfully,

Priya Chaudhary.
