The workshop was an introduction to drawing using the Atelier 'envelope' method. Nichola is a really skilled artist and an engaging teacher. I am a beginner to drawing and Nichola was very patient and encouraging. The group was small, so we all had lots of one on one time with her. Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in learning this classical style of drawing. The National Gallery is of course a very inspiring venue, and the class is early enough to avoid too many crowds.

Nicola taught us a number of super insightful techniques in a very fluid way. It was all very seemless! We first did a couple of exercises in a quiet part of the gallery and then moved to one of the busy galleries towards the end of the session to put what we had learned into practice. Nicola was very thoughtful and explained every clearful. Would recommend!

I had such a insightful morning learning the beginning skills of figurative drawing with Nichola. It was a spoiling treat to be able to learn to draw in the famous rooms of the National Gallery and by a brilliant teacher Nichola who can share her expansive knowledge of art experience and skills. I could not recommend this more and very much look forward to my next masterclass at the V&A with Nichola learning to draw from further great masters under her guidance.
