Feedback from recent workshops

“I found the course stimulating, educational, fun and inspiring. I thought the content was well structured and covered fundamental knowledge of drawing. Materials provided were generous and fun to work with. Thank you for your time and instruction Marco.” – Georgia, 2019

“Certainly gave me a totally new perspective. Open my eyes to scaling and how to view a piece more analytically. The content was very suitable in that there is a lot to take in and Marco presented thoroughly and gave enough time for us to experiment.” – Sally, 2019

“Great to get back to basics and practice simple principles. There were good challenges for experienced drawers and less challenging things for beginners which I thought was good. A good amount of time to get into work without getting too tired. Nice to have tea on offer! 🙂 Thanks Marco for a great course, you are an experienced and approachable teacher.” – Bethany, 2019

“Marco is a lovely man & obviously enjoys passing on his knowledge to people who are interested in learning to draw. Very hard to get everything right for people who are on different pathways- Marco was able to keep everyone interested & involved.” – Bebe, 2019

“Marco is a gifted and patient teacher who did not micromanage in any way. He was easy to talk to and guided without any arrogance. Thank you, Marco, for sharing your talent and love for art with us.” – Sarah, 2018

Marco’s attitude and teaching style are very helpful and non-judgmental, which is important for an art class.” – Meghan, 2018 

“Marco showed the ability to accommodate all of our needs with kindness and a willingness to spend the time to push through. Marco showed that he is flexible enough to handle anyone with respect.” – Roz, 2018

“I really loved that Marco was not intimidating or condescending, which often happens with teaching artists.  He freely gave his knowledge, in a nice way, that encouraged us all.  I don’t really like structure in art but will be using his technique, knowing how well it works.  Marco made it fun and easy to understand.  I like his style of teaching.  I can easily implement what I have learned, into my practice.  Thanks so much, Marco for your kindness with this class.

By the way, I don’t usually get a compliment from my hubby, for my art from a class, but I did this time.  I hope to do more.” – Faye, 2018

“I loved the course –  well thought out and really useful,- much to think about and really unpacked the fundamentals in an easy, thoughtful and interesting way  Marco is great at it – best class I have ever done! ” Liz, 2018

“I really enjoyed the class. As a complete beginner, it was not intimidating and I learnt a lot. Loved watching Marco draw the head and still life objects. Great to see all the techniques put together in a practical experience, especially since he talked through his actions and thought processes. Also just enjoyable to watch an expert at work :-)” – Caroline, 2017

“Martyn and I really enjoyed the day. The length for us was great – we wanted to have as much crammed in as possible so we could learn some “tools” for our attempts in the future. Yes – we would recommend this class to others.” – Danielle and Martyn

“I really enjoyed Marco’s drawing bootcamp, and I’d definitely recommend it to others.  It was great to have a full day, just concentrating on basics. It was intense, but really worthwhile.” Kristen, 2017
