Once again your drawing lesson was a huge success and its effect on the students learning was quite clear.

Life Drawing is a must! Nick was super brilliant.
Katherine Keeble-Buckle. Lecturer in Art & Design. Cardiff and Vale College
The feedback that we had from the students was fantastic. They also commented on the teaching and said that they enjoyed your energetic approach to working. The work that they have produced will not only be valuable for the portfolio but for improving their drawing skills.
