I joined the weekend art group with zero experience of painting, and achieved much more than expected to thanks to some excellent tuition from Ewan.I left with some new skills and, more importantly, the confidence and enthusiasm to continue. I hope to be back in future for a refresher!

Always wanted to go on a painting weekend and now that I have done it I can't wait to do it all again. There were plenty of different mediums to try out with Ewan there to support and encourage you when needed. Lunch was great and it is always nice to meet new people with similar interests.

Hi Elizabeth, Thank you for taking the time reviewing us, much appreciated, and thank you for your kind words. Maybe the art class could qualify as a personal development course for your work so you don't have to wait till retirement :) Best wishes and do some sketching whenever you are near a pencil and paper.

Ewen and Claudia have created a truly beautiful all-round experience in their painting and drawing weekend from the stunning countryside location, lovely lunches, to the well-stocked art studio. Ewen's relaxed and flexible teaching style, his openness and encouragement, creates a wonderfully calm atmosphere where you can get lost in your own process without any concern about artistic ability. Many mediums... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. It was a birthday gift from my son and his wife and my son came with me. It was great working alongside him and the helpful comments from Ewan were much appreciated. It was good to meet other people with similar interests and Claudia provided a first class lunch. I would love to return sometime.
