Course testimonials:

  • Alison said: This was a really great course! I enjoyed being taken through the basics of water colours and then studying two specimens across the class. It would have been helpful if the tutor came around to look at our work more to give some more individual feedback in the second class but her explanations were clear and her demonstrations were great.
