Feedback from past students

"The teacher was extremely friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable about the subject"

"I was surprised by how much I could learn of the basics of painting in such a short time. I have painted before quite often but this course taught me the fundamental principles that had never been spelt out for me before about things like colour mixing, laying the paint out on the palette and how to start a painting."
