‘I attended Fran’s oil class as I’ve always painted in watercolour but never tired oils. From the first lesson, Fran explained everything clearly and talked through colours to use for skin tones, which was really helpful. Her knowledge and experience really show when she’s tutoring you and her comments are helpful. I’m really glad I attended her class and feel I now have the confidence to paint with oils- would highly recommend’

‘I really enjoyed Fran’s class. She’s found a good balance between constant input and letting you know when to go with it. The sessions are relaxed, but very productive. I would highly recommend this course’-Paul

‘This was a fantastic course I am a complete beginner but have been given such sound advice and encouragement through Fran that I know feel confident enough to go it alone’- Emma

‘I really enjoy Fran’s lessons; she’s a very patient teacher and is full of useful tips and tricks to help even the most novice. Would highly recommend this course’- Suzanne

‘Fran’s class has been great. I have improved my ability ten fold. The class itself are made up of interesting talented students of all ages and ability. Fran’s style is to encourage and motivate with her great knowledge and ability she makes the classes very enjoyable.’-Simon
