Course testimonials:

  • This course in acrylics by Helen Cottle really helped me to loosen up and to broaden my skills. It was good to see how to create a 'layering effect' in acrylics and to work in a fast impressionistic way. The course was hands on, easy to follow and very enjoyable!
  • Excellent all round. A Wonderful and inspirational experience. Living in an isolated area, makes these opportunities so much more valuable. Thank you so much for organising and hosting a valuable learning opportunity, Helen was marvellous and so talented but very patient and understanding. Great 3 days.
