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.

Tessa's class is the best! - I look forward to attending, she guides us and at the same time she allows us to develop and improve through our work. She always brings materials and resources to discuss and learn about different Art periods, styles of painting and other Art forms, always interesting. Looking forward to next term.

I love coming to Tessa’s classes. She is very knowledgeable not only about what works eg perspective, colour and materials but also about the masters and art history. She brings examples of beautiful works. I also love the other artists in the group. We all support each other. Christine Davison
