Tamar’s Drawing For Beginners classes are fantastic - I’d recommend to anyone, regardless of their skills or perception of their own ability. Great atmosphere, Tamar couldn’t be more supportive and encouraging, and the weekly sessions have just the right balance between learning and being able to experiment. Thanks for the encouragement to keep going! I took part in the 'Drawing for Beginners' course and could not recommend the course, and Tamar as a teacher, enough. Tamar is such a fantastic teacher, so encouraging and knowledgeable and always more than happy to answer any questions along the way. Now I'm no longer hesitant or nervous when it comes to drawing and have had a great time learning and experimenting throughout the course, and continue to do so even after it's finished.
