Tess is very generous with her knowledge and advise. She presents very interesting talks on a variety of aspects of art, always encouraging comments and questions. The focus on Impressionism, Chinese art and Japanese prints sparked much discussion. Tess expertly makes connections between her presentations and the current works students display for her perusal. Her gentle and encouraging manner fosters an excellent group dynamic.

Hi Nancye, great to hear that you loved the session. It's a pity you only gave it one star. Hope that was accidental. Box Hill Art Group.
