    Student feedback

    “I loved the course and thought the teacher was fantastic. The content was really great, I have never done oil painting before so loved learning about the new medium.

    The time flew. Both sessions were probably long enough but seem to be over in a flash. There was an abundance of paints, brushes etc. Everything we needed was on hand.”

    ““I thought the course was great, very rewarding to leave with a painting at the end of each session. Marco was very knowledgeable and supportive. Great quality materials and options of stimulus.”
