“It met my expectations completely. Did what it said on the tin. A huge amount was covered in 2 days.”

Student comments

“Very informative and easy to follow. A lot crammed in – in a good way – just taster methods.” The course has met my expectations because, “I wanted to know methods [of drawing] to use which were met.”

“Fun and informative; learnt so much in the weekend that you wouldn’t have been able to learn through a book or online. I have learnt a lot about how to see an object better before/whilst drawing. It’ll help me in teh future when I’d like to draw something from real life. [The course] met and exeeded my expectations! I really was happy to be able to learn where to start when drawing something in real life, rather than just a copy. Also a great opportunity learning and experimenting with different materials.”

“Very enjoyable, never boring! Totally met expectations! I know far more now than when I first arrived. Great course would highly recommend”

“A very good introduction to drawing and painting with a friendly tutor in a supportive setting. ” My course highlight was that “I really enjoyed watercolours more than I expected.”
Jane R

“Great for proper beginners. No experience necessary. Felt comfortable not knowing anything.” My course highlight was “actually putting pencil to paper and completing my first watercolour.”

“You will have a great time. Lots to learn. The time flies by. The only time you look out the window is when you want to understand perspective.” I have learnt “techniques and technical skills – lots! No doubt some you will embrace more than others but all good to know.” The course has ‘fully’ met my expectation. “I wanted to see if I could take my interest further and realised I enjoy it so onwards and upwards.”
