Feedback from recent workshops

“It was a great workshop; Bootcamp is a good description as its very full and intensive. Marco is a good and very experienced teacher and artist. He explains concepts clearly and encourages.” – Judith, 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
