This was an amazing afternoon. I learnt so much about so many aspects of painting. Claire is a wonderful teacher who accommodates all abilities with patience and encouragement. Her style of painting Is beautiful and just watching her paint as you follow along is a great learning experience and that’s without all the wisdom and step by step guidance she offers! Claire’s limited pallet was carefully explained and was a revelation to me 😊. I can’t wait to practice what I learned today - thank you Claire!

Clair is a friendly, approachable person and a fantastic teacher. Not only did I learn how to create a beautiful painting, but I learnt more about colours and values, and how to get the best out of my painting. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day!
