I agree completely with the other reviews. Miranda is a very good teacher. She has the right balance between encouragement and instruction. I always look forward to her classes.

Miranda is a marvellous teacher she can see where you go wrong and helps you in every way possible.
I would recommend her. I have never had such a good art teacher and have been going to her for years.
Even if you have not drawn from life or painted from life or even done any sculpture from life including portraits she will give you the confidence inspiration and most of all the satisfaction of what you have done.
Thank you SO much Miranda for all your help!!

Miranda is an excellent teacher she encourages you to try new ways to improve your skills and techniques using different media and helps to improve the way you look at the subject, a very enjoyable course.

First class tuition. Miranda knows her stuff! What I like about her teaching is she helps the student to see where they are going wrong for themselves. She allows the student to correct their own mistakes rather than doing it for them. Very important in the learning process. I feel my progression each week. Excellent course, excellent tuition, in a cosy venue, with tea and biscuits. What more could any student want!
