Course testimonials:

  • Susie always gives a lot of her knowledge out at each of her workshops and the trick is to retain some of that knowledge for the future and to put it into my watercolours. A very worthwhile day.
  • The tutor Susie is not only a skilled artist but she is also a skilled, experienced and passionate teacher. Often in these types of courses the teaching techniques are often lacking and tutors rely on their artistic skills to teach..... to be really successful the tutor needs to know their subject matter AND be able to scaffold, chunk down key steps, and inspire- Susie does this. Also giving constructive but positive feedback on student artworks at the end of sessions, adds quality to the learning experience.
