Lily loved the club, her drawings of cats are much improved and she told us that you also had a look at artists’ drawings. I am impressed, this club seems to be very well done, thank you!

Charlie absolutely loves your classes!

Budding Artists

It's really fun, you do really interesting stuff and you learn about different art and artists.

This is the best art club in the world!

I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter loves your class, her art has changed dramatically since joining art club


Thank you for another brilliant inspirational term. You are the most fantastic teacher. The only problem is that I've nearly finished another sketchbook. I seem to be averaging one per term. Your classes are seriously addictive: to do more art!


Thanks again for a fabulous morning. The length of the session was just right, the activities adapted so well to a range of ages and abilities. and you were both fantastic with the kids. They loved it and I loved it!


Thanks for your hard work Jo. I understand that the students really enjoyed your sessions, that sign up and attendance was excellent (always a good sign!) and that you were well-prepared and enthusiastic. I hope it was a positive experience for you as well
