Sarah is a fabulous teacher. The course has been very well thought out, and you can go at your own pace.
It is suitable for beginners as well as more experienced painters, and Sarah is really good at making changes when the pace is wrong for the group.
Anyone can draw, and with the guidance of Sarah, you will thrive !
Give it a go, you will love it.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Ah thanks Bridget, that’s a fantastic review. I’m so happy that you’re enjoying the sessions. Your work has been fabulous and I particularly loved your Panda. Thank you again! All the best Sarah 😊
It was only by a very lucky chance that I signed up for Sarah's course for beginners. I had never thought that I remotely possessed any form of artistic skills and being pretty late in life, what was the point in trying?
The course has been a revelation to me. Not only have I learnt skills that appear to have been dormant for the best part of a century (!!) but the course is so relaxing in a totally different way. All participants are so enthusiastic one can hardly hear a pin drop when they are concentrating on their pieces! Everyone seems to be thoroughly enjoying the experience, as am I.
Well done Sarah, an inspiration.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Ah thank you Nigel. What a wonderful review. Both your charcoal piece and watercolour work has been fantastic. You’ve taken to it, like a duck to water. So glad you joined! Thank you again for the lovely words and see you very soon! 😊
Thoroughly enjoying this course, Sarah is inspiring us all ,and encourages us with her great skills and knowledge, with great results.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Thank you Linda for the lovely feedback. Really glad that you’re enjoying the course. The hares and the bees that you have created are fabulous!! Really well done! 😊
Sarah’s teaching method is truly unique. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and cannot believe some of the work that is coming out as a result. Not having done any work for many years I am astounded that I have achieved a piece worthy of framing and so did everyone else. The class content and materials are spot on and it is Sarah’s ability to teach techniques in an understanding and friendly environment that has the edge. I look forward to the class every week. Thank you Sarah. Dottie
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Ah thank you Dottie for the lovely words... it means the world! I’m thrilled to bits that you’re enjoying the course so much and I am so pleased with the work that you’ve produced. Can’t wait to see some of it hanging in our May show! Look forward to seeing you very soon. Thank you again, Sarah 😊
Sarah is a great teacher! She taught us how to believe in ourselves, we have all produced some great work under her guiding eye.She is very talented and very gracious too. I really look forward to each and every class and am always surprised at what l can achieve!
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Thank you Jane... the work you’ve produced has been excellent. It’s lovely to see your confidence and talent blossom. Thank you for the lovely review and see you very soon 😊
Really excellent teacher with a sympathetic, can do, hands on approach. Lovely location, beautiful materials. Generous sharing of knowledge and expertise. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Aw thanks Natasha. It’s been a joy to see your work develop to a fantastic standard! You’ve created some really beautiful artwork. Thank you for the lovely review and see you very soon! 😊
Charcoal drawing may not be as appealing as other media such as watercolour but I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Sarah is convinced that she can teach anyone to draw and judging by our class's results she appears to be correct. Everybody went away with an image worthy of framing. Sarah is a very patient and capable teacher and I would thoroughly recommend the course.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Thank you John! The pieces that you have produced have been fabulous and I’m so glad you’re enjoying the course. See you on Tuesday! 😊
Fabulous day with Sara. Well paced and gave one on one tuition when needed. Very inspirational and loved the tips and tricks provided. Highly recommended. Look forward to working with Sarah again.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Thanks for the great review Liz. It was super working with you. You picked it the tips with amazing speed and I very much look forward to working with you again! 😊
I knew Sarah previously and have greatly admired her work. She is such an inspiration, and I was thrilled when she launched her course.
I would definitely recommend it, you learn new techniques under the guidance of Sarah. She’s a very patient teacher and her words of encouragement will sure to help you create your masterpiece.
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Thank you Joan for the lovely review. Your career is going from strength to strength and it’s great watching you taking to a whole new level. Congratulations on all of your recent successes here and overseas and I look forward to seeing your work continue to flourish!
Inspirational and motivating course, opening me up to all kinds of possibilities. Sarah had a very organised and clear approach in her teaching, but made it good fun and I think all of us achieved more than we each expected. Very happy couple of days!
Response from Severn Valley Art Retreat:Thank you Maggi! I’m really glad you enjoyed it. It was great working with you. You helped bring life, energy and creativity to the course and the 2 pieces you created were fabulously rich in colour and vibrancy! Thank you again for the lovely feedback 😊
