As a complete novice I was delighted to find Karen who has taught me so much during this first course. She combines guidance, criticism, encouragement and praise with good humour and genuine interest. Being in a small class with individual attention is a bonus. The studio is set up in a relaxed atmosphere with all the equipment required and advice is given on the purchasing, with discounts, of personal paint, canvas and brush requirements. Karen has given me the confidence to continue and improve and I can highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for tuition in this art. Her tea and biscuits are good too!
