Course testimonials:

  • said: Our teacher was very engaging and knowledgable. She explained things very easily and encouraged a lot of thinking and feedback which was great. I would have loved some more detail around brush techniques but appreciate there was a lot to put into just 2 classes

  • said: 5 stars

  • said: Just trying a new style of painting and the use of different techniques to create texture. Very relaxed and good teacher

  • said: Learning more about my ability and my limitations. Excellent course and challenging. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • said: The tutor was absolutely fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and patient. It really changed things for me in terms of how I feel about my creativity and how I can paint. I can't recommend it enough. She took us all on a journey starting with us having self doubt, to us creating some pretty impressive art. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course and I might be tempted to take it again!
