    Feedback from previous students

    “10 /10 definitely – have enrolled in drawing with a friend. 
    Content? Loved how we just got straight into it … learning by doing  
    Length? Perfect but loved so much could do longer  
    Materials? Tick – lots of options very generous with canvas and paint  
    It was so much better than I expected, Michelle was positive, constructive feedback and gave plenty of great tips.” – Carol, 2021

    “Fantastic. It was aimed at the right level for someone with no experience of painting since high school. Michelle went through it in enough detail and demonstrated it so I felt confident to paint from week 1.  I was able to paint something that helped me feel confident to explore and do more. It’s a great feeling to finish a painting after one lesson.” Phyllis, 2021

    “Michelle is a welcoming, knowledgeable instructor. Highly recommend her. She shared her expertise and skills freely and was genuinely interested in supporting every ones’ needs and different painting skills.” Lydia, March 2021
