Of course our students are at the heart of our classes and workshops. We want to be nurturing, supportive and encouraging so they can develop and thrive. Our aim is to deliver quality classes and workshops that students want and so it’s always great to have feedback to see how we are
Here are a few words about our classes and workshops from our past and current students
‘Thank you so much for the amazing workshop, Hilary and Cheri. Really enjoyed it and am now looking forward to adding some finishing touches. Can I come again please??’ K. Rogers
Thank you so much for the workshop yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m amazed at what I managed to create as a complete novice with Hilary’s guidance.
“Cheri is a fantastic teacher and her relaxed Art Class has turned out to be a great place for me to improve my skills and try new things. I’m so glad I found the courage to go!” Kevin
“Before doing a course with Cheri, my pictures were flat with no life, but now my pictures have life with light and shade, using pencils, charcoal and acrylic. She has taught me lots of different techniques and how to get different textures.”
“I started Cheri’s classes 10 weeks ago to improve my art in general. I have really enjoyed the classes, which are informal, and one-to-one based within a small group.
I have attended many art classes over time in varied working environments, I find this one of the nicest as it is situated within an art gallery .
Cheri is a very talented artist and experienced teacher able to impart knowledge and give comprehensive tuition with clear demonstration.
There is always something new and valuable to learn and I have done just that at this class! I feel motivated and inspired to draw and paint at home between lessons.
I shall be returning for the next sessions after Easter.” Julie
“From the very first lesson I felt very welcome and comfortable. I gained a lot of knowledge and enjoyed every class. I gained confidence back in myself and am now doing a degree in drawing and printmaking. Cheri is an excellent teacher and an amazing artist. She is an inspiration to me and others.” Kerri.
“I have been a student of Cheri’s for two years. In this time, under her tuition, I have learnt many new skills; also she takes time to teach you the techniques. She has a very professional, but friendly approach in teaching of all her students. I have gained a lot of confidence in my artistic approach, which has also given me more confidence as a person.”
Well what can I say about this lovely lady, I was put in touch with her at the beginning of the year as my daughter was failing her GCSE Art…. She was able with only three months available to her to turn this round…taking time to explain the coursework requirements as well help with techniques that my daughter needed to learn… My daughter passed her GCSE art and secured a place in Plymouth College of Art …the things that were learnt by my daughter has not only helped her with her GCSE but is now being transferred to her work at art college where she secured a distinction for her first piece. I would recommend anybody to go to her classes absolutely fantastic, her expertise, patience and knowledge is second to none and she enabled my daughter to chase her dreams…Thank you Cheri
