"Julie teaches you all the basics you wish you had been taught at school and through her encouragement and persistence, people with the least experience have made rapid progress during her inspirational courses. She will gently take you out of your comfort zone to realise new horizons and discover that with a few essential guidelines, art is truly achievable for everyone and we can each work towards our own individual styles.
Since going to Julie’s classes, (a highlight of my week), I have not only developed my own skills but have a new found confidence in an area I had never believed was possible. Last, but not least, I have met some really lovely like-minded people who have become good friends.
I strongly recommend giving Julie a try and with perseverance and an open mind, you never know what you might achieve!."
"I first met Julie almost a year ago at a one day sketch book workshop. I immediately felt that here was someone with a gift for bringing out the best in her students. I have always loved all forms of creativity, but never had the confidence to join “ an art class, because I can’t draw! “ But Julie’s sessions have been a revelation, each week we are challenged to try out different media and materials and extend our knowledge, learning what suits us and how to improve.
Julie is an inspirational teacher with a kind and caring nature and a genuine desire to make us all feel good about our work.
Thank you Julie."
"Julie is a great teacher. From beginners to the more accomplished, Julie structures her classes to suit. In depth drawing, pen and wash, acrylic layering, still life and longer individual projects are just some of the art classes offered. Added to this is a really good atmosphere to enable you to grow as an amateur. Highly recommend to anyone who is in two minds. Lots of lovely ladies too who enjoy a good chat at the same time. Try it."
"Julie is great at encouraging you whatever level you are. I regularly go to her classes to continue to develop and learn in a relaxed atmosphere. It is my 'me-time' and even though I have been painting for years, Julie always manages to get me to look and learn something new. Classes are small so everyone gets the chance to be helped individually. The tea and home-made muffins are just the icing on the cake!!!"
