Course testimonials:

  • Anna said: Hi there Shipra is an amazing artist and we learnt so much from her. My only criticism is that the name of the course was misleading. We had to paint from copying a printed photograph whereas usually still life means drawing from real life objects. She is a 'realist watercolourist' which is quite special so maybe the course name and details should reflect better what she will teach. I'm really happy to have done the course, but it was nothing like what I expected. Thank you!

  • Tanya said: The course and tutor was very good, but the venue needs to be renovated as it's very old and extremely cold. The sink also got clogged.
