Feedback from previous students
“I learnt a lot. In terms of lessons for investment it’s a great return. I learnt practical things I can ACTUALLY use in my day to day artwork. There were a couple of lessons that truly shifted the way I view form that I found very helpful. Marco is brilliant. He is such a gorgeous human being. He is attentive and caring and gives himself fully. He’s a great teacher and I learnt so much. The whole course was just marvellous. I’ve had a few art classes over the years. I’ve been doing art classes since I was 10. And this is one of my favourite. Thank you so much to you and Marco and this company. You’re doing something special and art is very important to society and you should know you’re positively impacting that.” – Maitlynd, 2018
“I really loved the course and learned so much in a very stimulating and judgemental-free environment. I enjoyed every moment spent at the studio and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning new techniques or simply rediscover a passion. Marco is really attentive and ready to jump in everytime he sees something that should be adjusted. I learned how to really look at things instead of reproducing something that is in my mind. Can’t wait to start a new one! ” Federica, 2018
“I found the course to be more than sufficient in providing the skills and materials needed to produce a painting. Marco is a great teacher as he provides you in detail all the necessary skills and techniques needed to create a portrait. Great course, would recommend to anyone who has an interest in drawing, painting and self-development.” – Lyndon, 2018
