I had a great class with Susan this morning. She has a wealth of information in regards to composition and colour and making your painting look interesting. It is so nice to be at the Art Centre again painting.

This is my first art class. The environment is good. The teacher is serious and patient at teaching. The number of students is small which is very good gives us a chance to get the guidance from the teacher. I feel happy and relaxed in learning, and I will continue to learn.

I was a student of Susan O'Brien from Diamond Valley Art Society, and wanted to try out the Box Hill Art Society venue as an extra/alternative class before joining. The online booking process and communication with the BHAS Secretary prior to the class was excellent. However, there were too many students at the class on the day that we attended which made the experience less enjoyable. It appears that the BHAS members don't use the online booking.

Hi Robin, thanks for coming along. We were also surprised by the number of people in attendance.  We thought that the tutor Susan did a great job looking after everyone. We will keep in touch and let you know if the numbers drop off.
