A great way to develop new skills and confidence in painting with an enthusiastic but very patient teacher. Even better as I got to paint the pictures I wanted to try to recreate, it is not a class where you all have to do the same thing. Highly recommend this course.

Lovely location, great gallery and a wonderful teacher. Ian will put anyone's nerves at bay, he is patient and knowledgeable and willing to help you develop new skills. The course has helped look at art in a totally different. Highly recommend this course to anyone.

Excellent value for both the absolute beginner and the improving artist. Ian is an enthusiast for art, the environment and life in general. He combines good humour with solid advice, developed over a long career as a professional artist. His knack of transforming a mediocre painting with a few well placed strokes of the brush is inspiring.

Didnt know what to expect from this course, because i had never even tried oil painting in my life. But by the end of 2hrs i was well and truely hooked. I was amazed that after a few weeks i had an original painting of mine hung on my wall. Relaxed studio lots of great instructions. All materials supplied. Coffee great and chocolate biscuits too. Ian walton is the best teacher to have. Well recommended!
