Here are some testimonials of people who have been on the course:

‘I attended Fran’s oil class as I’ve always painted in watercolour but never tired oils. From the first lesson, Fran explained everything clearly and talked through colours to use for skin tones, which was really helpful. Her knowledge and experience really show when she’s tutoring you and her comments are helpful. I’m really glad I attended her class and feel I now have the confidence to paint with oils- would highly recommend’

‘I really enjoyed Fran’s class. She’s found a good balance between constant input and letting you know when to go with it. The sessions are relaxed, but very productive. I would highly recommend this course’-Paul

‘Fran’s class has been great. I have improved my ability ten fold. The class itself are made up of interesting talented students of all ages and ability. Fran’s style is to encourage and motivate with her great knowledge and ability she makes the classes very enjoyable.’-Simon
