1:1 Art as a gift sessions

My husband purchased a one-to-one session with Nicola for my birthday, as I had been wanting to get back into art and creating for a while but didn’t know where to start!  Having lost confidence over the years, Nicola instantly put me at ease and reassured me that it was the actual ‘doing’ that was important, not the end result. Even so, I was surprised and delighted with what I produced.  Our session flew by and I left feeling inspired, energised and ready to just give it a go!

'What I have noticed most of all is that I used to watch new techniques and think, 'Oh no, I can't do that'. Now I think, I can't WAIT to try that!' Jon, 29.

'It's a joy to attend Nicola's classes. I have rediscovered something wonderful because of her. All ages and stages are encouraged to find that spark, and all leave with a sense of achievement. The teaching techniques are very professional, but delivered in a fun way. It's great value and I highly recommend joining'. Val, 63

Group Adult Art classes

A wonderful, relaxing atmosphere to experience art in its different forms. Teacher Nicola is patient and encouraging, and a joy to be taught by. The course has even encouraged me to pick up some pastels at home! Monica, 64

Group Adult Art classes

My daughter Shayla (who is Home educated) and I have attended the art classes for a long time now. Shayla has really grown in confidence as class is so homely and friendly. Last week Shayla started the day being very quiet, and by the end of the lesson she was on a natural high for the rest of the day from being so proud of her work. I love it because it's so friendly, and I have learnt so much! :) Justina and Shayla
