Sarah Matthews Testimonial

Sarah Matthews

I had never done any drawing or painting at all since I left primary school, but the class opened the door to a rewarding pastime. Now I often take a sketchbook on holiday with me, and have completed several oil paintings. Learning to draw and paint has made me observe the world more attentively, and notice things I was previously oblivious to. It has also helped me to understand and appreciate other artisits’ work. I enjoy becoming absorbed in drawing and painting. There is a companionable and supportive atmosphere within the class. Class members take pleasure in each other’s progress and success. The teaching is supportive and encouraging, but also challenging. The teacher is infectiously enthusiastic. During the class individual projects and guided work take place alongside each other, according to the preferences and needs of individual class members. I come because it’s fun!
