WHAT OUR CLIENTS & STUDENTS SAY
"I’ve liked and enjoyed your art sessions. Despite the limitations of Zoom, as opposed to face to face, they have all gone very well. It helps that you have the camera and technology to demonstrate clearly various techniques, but you’ve also welcomed and reacted positively to the questions, ideas and suggestions of participants. Above all, your sense of humour and relaxed style has created an excellent learning environment. In other words, I and others in the group have been able to learn and have fun at the same time."
ANDREW & CAT
"We’ve loved the online sessions with Dean – every week we look at the image we’ll be drawing and think “there’s no way we can do that” and every week he breaks down the seemingly impossible into simple and enjoyable steps and by the end of the session we’ve always surprised ourselves with what we create. Dean is a hugely engaging and encouraging tutor, who’s always fun to spend the time with – we can’t recommend the sessions highly enough"
“I have been studying with Dean for nine months now and his classes have become a real highlight of my week. The focus and concentration required for drawing and painting has helped me put aside the stresses of work. I find it almost like meditation, and my new hobby has really helped me stay sane through the pandemic. I have also become a lot better on the skills front. Dean is an excellent teacher, taking you through things step-by-step and giving lots of personal coaching. Turns out this is something that works really well over a video conference.”
“I loved Dean’s kickback session. So much of what I do at work stretches over months before I get any conclusion. It was brilliant to take a little project from start to completion at one sitting. And Dean’s step by step instructions meant that I had a real sense of accomplishment even though I went in thinking I wouldn’t be able to draw much.“
