I cannot praise this course enough; superb teaching, brilliant facilitator, beautiful setting and supportive classmates.
I had done very little art since school but always felt drawn to it. This course promised an introduction to a range of techniques and has more than fulfilled it’s promise. I have signed up for a second term. Thank you Jayne and Michael.

I began this course to self heal from a rather deep and traumatic experience just over two years ago. I'm a therapist and coach so have successfully self healed but felt drawn immediately to this course which popped up on social media.

Ten weeks in and I'm feeling sad this group will come to its end after another four sessions. However, so delighted am I in the incredible talent, skill and teaching from Jane and her attentive and supportive Michael ... the Organiser of Colourwheel, that I am bursting to begin the next 14 week course! Already signalled my eagerness to sign up!!

Ushaw College Durham has become my second favourite place to visit. The art course has awakened a dormant potential and brought smiles and laughter to my soul. It is absolutely amazing!

Art has become my greatest therapy.

I don't ever want to get off this flying colour wheel of fun and friendship.

Jane and Michael are a fantastic training duo!

I can’t recommend this course highly enough! As someone who’d not done any art for decades - since leaving school - I was initially apprehensive yet very excited to begin again. I’m now in my third term and have signed up for a fourth - it’s become addictive and I love it. Since starting, I’ve used a huge variety of mediums and learned then practised new skills to produce work of really good quality, and this has substantially increased my confidence in my own ability. Not only that, I now look forward so much to Wednesday classes, it’s a highlight in my week.
Much of this positivity and progress is down to the patient, encouraging and outstanding teaching by Jayne, the ever-efficient organisation and welcoming nature of the course leader, Michael, and the sheer variety and quality of resources provided for us to work with. If you’re thinking about joining an art class, look no further!

I really cannot recommend this course enough! I am now in my second term, and really enjoying it. Every week Is different, building on skills using various media. The lessons are led by a fantastic teacher, and are brilliantly well run and administered. Ushaw College is a beautiful setting, giving a real ‘away from it all’ feeling. I am very much a beginner, but always feel thoroughly encouraged and valued – go for it!

I had wanted to do an art course that covered all mediums for a while but there was nothing in this area so when the leaflet for Colour Wheel came through the door I couldn't wait to join. I wasn't disappointed and am now on my third term. All the topics covered are very interesting and demonstrated step by step by Jayne (art teacher) with handouts in class and follow up notes via e-mail. Jayne is very helpful and friendly and I have learnt a lot of new skills and techniques. Michael who runs the course is also extremely helpful and friendly. I love the course and have already signed up for next term. I thoroughly recommend joining this course. Thank you Jayne and Michael
