Tessa's class is always a pleasure to attend to. She brings an interesting and different Art related subject to discuss together with references, books etc. In these sessions I have been able to discover and improve in my painting where in the past I was missing the mark. Tessa depicts and helps all of us to see where we might need to improve. She does this by always going back to the basics, (I always need to be reminded!) thus allowing us to improve on our artwork. Thank you Tessa for your hard work. Ana F

I regard my Saturday art classes with Tessa is the time for myself, is a 'Me time'. I enjoy the classes very much as it is not just the time for me to enhance my skills but also the time to social with other fellow artists, the place where we can learn from each other. As a student, I really appreciate Tessa's guidance and a direction. She always gives me a clear direction and shows me how to improve my work when ever required. But at the same, she appreciates my strength and characteristic of my work. I have learned tremendously since I joined her classes in 2019.
