It's a great place for me to relax, focus and gain confidence. All while making fantastic art. I highly recommend Malvern School of Art. It's very safe, creative, friendly environment. I found small classes which allow for personalized attention, quality supplies, well lit and comfortable studios as well as qualified instructors who assess students abilities and plan accordingly Teachers have different approaches and styles, this is why it's easy to find one who suits you. The teacher and also principal Tull, he is wonderful, patient, kind and just great at teaching. Thanks for the magic experience !!!! Love love love this place!
