Really interesting fun relaxing day. Really lovely studio in a lovely setting.
Liz was amazing and extremely knowledgable.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much for the lovely review. I am glad that Yasmin and you enjoyed the day. And yes, the setting is stunning isn’t it?
Liz was a great tutor and did a fantastic job of going through all the techniques that a beginner might need to get started with watercolour. Venue was lovely too. Really enjoyed the day!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thanks so much Becky! I hope we covered a year’s worth of evening classes in a day…
I really enjoyed the day with Liz. It was a good mixture of instruction and time to put it into practice. The exercises we did were simple but really illustrative of what you could achieve with watercolours.
I came away feeling very enthusiastic and inspired.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Ceri
Just spent a wonderful day with Liz in the beautiful setting.
Liz paced the entire day well with periods of instruction and supervised practice.
Not sure I’m ever going to be an artist, but really looking forward to using the resources provided and experimenting further.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Sally, thank you for the lovely review. You have all the techniques and tools now, so you can experiment. It’s a muscle which needs to be exercised, so the more you practice the stronger you’ll get. Above all, enjoy it 😊
I really enjoyed the day yesterday and it was great to try something new with using watercolours on canvas. Liz's instructions were all very clear and delivered with great enthusiasm and knowledge. We produced two pieces of work and came home with a prepared canvas for our own project. It was interesting to see how watercolours reacted to the canvas and to work on the technique of layering. I would thoroughly recommend Liz's courses.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much for the lovely review, and I’m pleased you enjoyed it. I hope you use your canvas to paint something at a more leisurely pace! Hope to see you again soon.
Another thoroughly enjoyable day with Liz Chaderton painting animals. Liz is an extremely talented artist, an excellent tutor, both patient and constantly encouraging and giving individual attention wherever needed. Her enthusiasm is so stimulating and motivating. I have struggled to paint for years and yet she has the ability to inspire me to get painting again. She demonstrates with easy to understand tips and practical guidance. The atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable and I would recommend her classes to anyone wanting to paint in watercolour at any level. The day just flew by.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much Yvonne! That’s a lovely review and I am so pleased you enjoyed it. The day does fly, doesn’t it? But that’s the joy of getting lost in watercolour. Please keep painting!
The course was absolutely brilliant. Liz was very welcoming and the venue was well organised and much thought and consideration had been given to making the environment relaxed, friendly and Covid safe.
Liz is a brilliant artist and tutor, she was very informative and was so open about her process, techniques and tips - which she generously shared.
The day was paced well and gave plenty of time to experiment and learn new techniques before applying them to a finished piece. She gave several group demonstrations throughout the day which showed each step clearly. This made the course really accessible to both beginners and more experienced artists alike. Throughout the day, Liz was on hand to give encouragement, advice and the benefit of her vast watercolour knowledge which was inspirational.
I can’t praise the day highly enough and would recommend her courses. She has a great teaching style that encourages you to be free and without the constraints of lots of watercolour ‘rules’ which was so refreshing.
Thank you for such a great day!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much Tracey, both for taking the time to write a review and for the review itself! I’m so pleased you enjoyed it. You are obviously a very experienced artist so it means a lot to me that you got lots out of the day. I hope you are now a little hooked on painting watercolours on canvas!
This was the second time that I have spent the day at Micklems farm with Liz leading a day of art instruction. Both “painting animals in watercolour “and yesterday’s “pen and wash” were such fun. There was a huge variety of inks and pens to try out ,and later in the day ,to choose a subject and pen to paint a picture. Liz has so much talent, both in teaching and her art work is amazing. I heartily recommend her courses. They are a wonderful day of making art in an exceptional studio in an amazing venue.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Madeleine, thank you so much for such a glowing review. That is really appreciated. I'm glad you enjoyed the day and hope that it has given you lots of food for thought and inspiration too. Hope to see you again soon! Lizx
A lovely relaxed day.
Liz is a great teacher and explained everything so clearly.
I learnt a lot about the variety of inks and pens that can be used, and had fun experimenting with different effects.
I can recommend Liz’s classes and I’ll certainly be booking more! 😃
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Sue, thanks for such a lovely review. I am so pleased you had a fun inky day and I would love to see more puffins!
Fantastic day, didn't realize there are so many different inks or pens.
Liz explained the different methods and tools to develop my line and wash pictures, then let us loose to experiment which was fun.
I would say to anyone its great way to find out what method and tools suit your style or push you out of your comfort zone and help to develop your skills as an artist.
I would always recommend Liz’s courses to anyone they are well planned and Liz is so helpful with any questions thrown her way.
The venue was light and spacious a beautiful setting to spend a day developing my art.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Clare - thank you so much for such a lovely review! It was great to see you and I am glad you enjoyed it. Now to get your studio finished!!!!
Always a thoroughly enjoyable day painting with Liz Chaderton. She is extremely knowledgeable, accomplished in her field and teaches very well with much explanation of the process involved. There are plenty of examples of her work that help clarify the topic and there is an overhead camera that helps everyone see clearly the demonstrations. It is always a lovely group of like-minded people and Liz puts everyone at ease. The venue is excellent too ... light, airy with beautiful gardens to relax and take a break. All materials and provided and plenty of material to inspire!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:What a lovely review Vicky! Thank you so much and I will make sure to pass on your comments to Micklems too. It was a pleasure to have you on the workshop.
Really lovely day. Easy instruction. Lots of techniques. Loads of materials to experiment with. Beautiful location.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Caroline - thank you for your lovely review and I am glad you enjoyed it!
I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Liz Painting Portraits. Liz is an excellent tutor, demonstrating in easy stages with very helpful advice and tips. I found the class well paced, with excellent content and very stimulating. I came away motivated to paint more and with a better understanding of portrait painting. For me Liz is one of the best art tutors and I would definitely recommend her classes.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much for the lovely review. So good to finally do the class after the cancellations of covid!! I am glad you enjoyed the day and hope it's given you lots to have a go at. Enjoy your homework with Mr Bun!!
Lovely balance of demonstration and practice. Informative and fun. Great setting
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much for the review Donna. I am glad you enjoyed the day and hope it gave you lots of things to work on. Looking forward to seeing your home work too!!!
Excellent tutor and the course is suitable for all levels. It is relaxed and fun but also full of information. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:So pleased you enjoyed it! I loved the work everyone did. We were lucky with some nice wether to set off the beautiful surroundings too.
Really enjoyed this course. Perfect for a complete beginner like me. Beautiful setting. It's two days after the course and I did a bit of painting this morning!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Ooh gold star for putting your learning into practise, so soon after the course. Well done and keep going 😁. So pleased you enjoyed it!
Lovely day. Excellent tutor who assessed our needs beautifully. Lovely setting.
I had been given the course as a 60th birthday present- two years ago. I think it will become the most memorable present
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Sue, what a lovely review. Thank you! I hope this will be the present which goes on giving for years!
Spent a lovely day with Liz. She is an excellent teacher and whilst encouraging also encouraged us to get out of our comfort zone. As a result I learnt a great deal and found the day a wonderful time to experiment with loads of personal tuition. I shall certainly try to come in another course In The future. Thank you Liz!
Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Hi Aline and thank you for a lovely review. So pleased you could join me on both the pen and wash day and the sketching day. And thank you for the lovely review. Lizx

Response from Liz Chaderton Artist:Thank you so much Aline. You were a pleasure to have on the course - full of ideas and enthusiasm.
