Feedback from our Life Drawing students

A good duration of the course (learnt a variety of techniques within this time period), and had one-on-one assistance which further developed my skill set.Rachel, 2017

I loved this course as it pushed me to experience something new and practice tasks that I hardly choose to do on my own. – Mehran, 2016

I have now completed 5x courses with Jesse and most certainly will again. I particularly enjoy Jesse’s attention to detail, observations and feedback. Always encouraging. I’m interested in ‘line’ and regularly I tighten up and lose my way. My drawing looked stiff and stilted. Recently Jesse suggested I play with tone, only. No line. Very difficult and frustrating and at the end of the night I had nothing that I valued. It felt and looked clumsy. But, Jesse pointed to some encouraging signs and I am happy (mostly!) to follow this important path and see where it takes me. It will expand my vision and repertoire. I can always return to line.Ian, 2016
