Sketchaway-5 Testemonials

A really enjoyable, motivational, and gently challenging course with a lovely talented course tutor anxious to pass on her knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for the world of sketch-booking, which really did exceed my expectations.

The course was very well organised.  The quality of the presentation and demonstration videos was exceptional, very professional and easy to follow. The timing of the course was perfect in that it gave me a focus in these difficult times. I was running out of ideas of what to paint. As the course progressed I found that my artistic juices were flowing again!

For someone who had rather lost their enthusiasm for painting and drawing this has been a brilliant course!  Excellent video presentations demonstrate basic and advanced sketching techniques and explain colour, patterns, and layout, and demonstrate how to apply these techniques.  All done in a very relaxed manner in the comfort of your own home.  The weekly exercises leave you free to work to your own timetable and Janet’s feedback on the work is really helpful and encouraging.  I think that the course works for all levels of skill from beginners to experienced painters and I would recommend it to anyone. It is actually quite difficult to put it into a few brief words but I really do think that it has been brilliant!  You seem to have got us all going and it has been so handy to have the videos to keep replaying them for reference.
