WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Jane
Art Course Participant

Can't rate The Useful Art Class enough. I've done their introduction to oil painting course and immediately signed up for the next course!

Rosie
Art Course Participant

I joined the Discovering Landscapes with Oils online course as I could see from Lucy's own artwork that she had a good understanding of colour. I have struggled with 'muddy' colours in my work and I hoped it would help. I was very impressed with with the well-planned course, Lucy's clear instructions, her knowledge and patience. I found it excellent value and, although fast-paced, it was fun and nice to chat to the other participants. The back-up information was also brilliant, and by the end of the 5 weeks I'm now painting with much cleaner colours. Thanks Lucy!
