ALL IN ALL A PEACEFUL, RELAXING AND LEARNING EXPERIENCE

"This was my first time on a holiday like this. I was nervous. Then I met Frank and Laura. Walked around the large studio. Saw a rabbit named ‘Leo’ wandering around in the studio. I felt like I’ve come home. There was no pretence, no judgment, just deep affection that I felt from them. The other students were all by themselves too and for some reason, we all developed a great understanding and friendship. When it was the end of the holiday, I knew I was going to miss Laura, Frank and the others. And I do. Especially the 11:30 break for Prosecco... the models were so patient with us and encouraging. All in all, a peaceful, relaxing and learning experience I’m not going to forget. Would have stayed longer if I could. And lovely Sheila who was so caring and thought of everything. Kept in touch to make sure everyone is okay". - Florence 2018

 

"I learnt so much from Laura - she was a fabulous teacher and so encouraging". Valerie Florence 2016

"Laura's tuition was always encouraging and to the point, yet never intrusive. I learned new techniques that will always stand me in good stead, and achieved my aims to find out about composing a still life and painting it in oils". Wendy Florence October 2016
