Students' Comments

Attendance on Friday mornings varies between seven and ten.  Mind you if everyone turned up it would be very cosy indeed!  I was late last week and the silence in the room was impressive; talk about concentration!  That is the thing about art, people become totally absorbed.  Therapeutic eh?  Irene, our new teacher is enthusiastic.  It is impossible to deal with the different rates of working when one person can knock off a painting in a morning while others are still working on fine details six weeks later.  However she seems to enjoy teaching us and we certainly enjoy her input.  November 2019


Sadly after more than a decade the art class had to say goodbye to John, our teacher.  He left to take up a teacher training course, so apart from wishing him well, we hope all those years of battling with our ‘talent’ stands him in good stead.  The culmination of our time together appeared on the wall in the computer room, namely the Van Gogh.  We so enjoyed this corporate effort that we followed it up with the Matisse which hangs opposite (somewhat drunkenly).


Would you believe that after less than a half term we found a new teacher.  Olga agreed to take us on and I hope her talent and enthusiasm rubs off.
