The knowledge and enthusiasm of teacher was outstanding. With very little experience of painting, I now nonetheless feel confident enough to progress to Painting 2. I'm sure the rest of the group felt as I did.

I was an absolute beginner with no previous experience of painting and exceptionally weak drawing skills. The course was superbly structured, offering a diverse range of painting activities and the tutor was tremendously knowledgeable, perceptive and supportive. Consequently, I've considerably developed my skills, confidence and desire to paint.
