  1. Hi, I am interested in participating in your oil and acrylic painting classes. Could you please forward me a list of the materials eg. paints (specific colours) and the brushes I would require. Many thanks, Patti Ross

  2. I’ve done two Flemish Painting Technique classes with Himi and am so thrilled with the results am moved to leave feedback.

    I really enjoyed Himi’s teaching style. He’s quiet and confident, firm and precise but also gentle. Intensely knowledgeable and skilled too. I think one of the most important things in a learning environment is to have the freedom, comfort and latitude to feel free to make mistakes; countered with a confidence in your lecturer that they can pull you up on these without making you feel awkward or disenchanted and have the skill to pull your work back from the brink so you can move forward. That’s a tricky balance.

    Hilmi did this with me many times and I am hugely grateful and inspired to continue.

  3. I attended Hilmi’s Flemish Painting Technique and Drawing Master Classes. They were the most enjoyable and fun classes I ever attended! Hilmi is the most patient teacher who ACTUALLY helps out and teaches real techniques. I really loved the “more action and less drama” based approach and I will return again soon for another class (when I am not too broke).
