Course testimonials:

  • said: Great tutor, friendly class.

  • said: Had a fantastic time and learnt a lot. Very proud of the improvements to my drawings! The teacher was able to personally assist all members of the class which were a mix of beginners and advanced students. Extra attention to detail like putting on some music were lovely touches making it a very relaxing experience after a stressful day. Please change the eraser in the equipment list. I got the recommended malleable one but a former eraser would have been better. Thank you!

  • said: I absolutely loved this course. Elinor taught me techniques I didn't think I would be able to grasp at all. I came away each night with drawings I felt pretty pleased with. I'm an absolute beginner and Elinor took me much further than I thought was possible. Highly recommend!

  • said: Lovely, kind and patient tutor with a real passion for flowers and plants. I learned new ways of looking and drawing.

  • said: Eli is a gifted teacher and was able to teach a very diverse class some key techniques and produce some satisfying artworks
