Student Testimonials

John is an extremely affable, knowledgeable and skilled tutor. His classes are relaxed, very friendly and flexible.  People are free to work on their own projects, which he will advise on, or engage in the set class activity, which introduces a variety of techniques over the weeks. It’s a really enjoyable and rewarding experience which I would recommend to anyone interested in developing their interest in painting and drawing.

I have been painting and drawing for years but learnt a lot that I didn't know from John and found his classes inspiring and educational.

I haven't attempted to draw or paint since I was a child. I joined John's classes and am having so much fun exploring different techniques and having a go! I learn something new every week and I love being able to fully immerse myself in the task at hand. It is so therapeutic. We are a mixed abilities group which makes it ever so interesting and my fellow class mates are so friendly. A wonderful non-judgemental environment to explore how to create art. I love this course.
