FEEDBACK from students

You are a fabulous teacher - I learnt so much, and found you the ideal combo of being hands-on yet giving us space and confidence to experiment.

Your advice was always spot-on, and got me thinking and looking at my painting in different ways - which resulted in much better pictures!

In the relatively short time I have been attending the weekly class I have gained painting skills ... which have given me confidence to tackle almost anything. So much so I was able to submit ... works for the Society of Women Artists summer exhibition. Two pieces have been selected.

... Monica encourages you to develop your own style and [bring] your own projects to the class. Her excellent advice, imagination and experience on all aspects of the process has been very creative and always supportive. ...

I have very much enjoyed the Painting classes run by Monica. There is always a friendly atmosphere that feels relaxed and unpressured.

Monica is very encouraging ... She has a good eye and quickly sees how to improve a painting whilst also always praising the good elements.

I have learnt not to give up on a painting but to modify and develop it. I just wish the sessions were longer!
