Student review

What students say

"I like the structure it creates, allowing me to put in some concentrated time painting, "Being able to take these courses is a God send for me; otherwise, life's demands can be a real distraction:)" Amanda Drope

"Birgit is such a brilliant tutor and makes learning so easy Mary Cosgrove

"I really like your approach to BOATS. The retired boat on the beach is a wonderful project. It is an emotional, poor old boat. You have made a beautiful painting of it and expressed how to create a painting with very little detail and say everything that is needed" Patricia Kuncewicz

"Another thumbs up! This BOATS the painting the old boat tells its story. I especially enjoyed your almost conspiratorial whisper as you put the background in the “Three Boats” painting “...and it’s fun!” That made me smile!" Sue Warnock
