“The course is so well structured yet relaxed and informal and Brian is a great tutor who is very aware of how to support and guide you throughout each exercise. I have learned a great deal about drawing and composition in a short space of time and it has been fun to do.”
Jill W
“…as with all Brian’s courses he manages to break down topics into bite size pieces which certainly helps me in my understanding of the various principles.”
Maria M
“Very different to usual drawing workshops, exciting and pushes you into very different and interesting ways of drawing.”
Barbara H
“It was a really enjoyable course which offered me a good understanding of the tools and techniques I needed to learn to draw. I would highly recommend Brian as a teacher.”
James E
“Excellent, well structured and set at just the right pace. You will leave with a range of exercises and techniques – more importantly ways of applying it to your own work.”
Sue R
“This is a life changing experience – I see the world in a different way and feel a new bravery and excitement about being creative.”
Jackie P
“Really very interesting. I learned loads! It’s helped me change the way I look at art and my approach to it.”
Max E
“Liberating, it’s 2.5 hours where you don’t think about anything apart from what’s right in front of you. It’s so freeing to make whatever mark you feel and it to come together.”
Rosie A
“Fantastic teaching. Brian is helpful, patient and non-judgemental in his teaching and he explains things in such a way that it is easy to understand.”
Charmaine B
“A very good introduction to a range of drawing and painting techniques, ideal for someone like me who has not picked up a pencil or brush for 40 years.”
Steve J
“Definitely worth doing for learning new ways of approaching drawing.”
Bryn H
“I’ve learnt that art is meant to be creative, that it should be expressive, fun and individual – it does not have to be a carbon copy of reality.”
Natasha D
“Strongly recommend. Relaxing, thoughtful and pleasurable learning experience.”
Philip L
“I had not drawn in 10 years. Really helpful… It was genuinely great. Nothing to add.”
Olivier M
“I started the course as a beginner. I have literally learnt everything – line, tone, colour, space, texture, pattern. I have also learnt confidence to try varied types of art and to experiment. This has been achieved by Brian’s careful lesson planning and his interest in individual problems.”

    A great introduction into creating art. The course covers the very basics of drawing and gave me a perfect start to a new hobby. Brian is friendly and informative and gives excellent 1-2-1 help. This short weekend course is a brilliant way of discovering a passion for art and will introduce you to various art materials, tricks and tips which will help you in creating your own early masterpieces.

    I found this an excellent approach to really seeing, capturing and recording what you are actually looking at, using a wide range of media – as well as being a talented artist Brian is an excellent teacher
