This oil painting course has so far (4/6 classes through) been fun, , very well taught , of an exceptionally high standard in terms of explanations and expectation. That said, well as Sue being really kind, friendly and supportive of us all!I cannot recommend highly enough. My concentration and perception has improved significantly and I am really enjoying remembering my school day lessons and thinking how much I wish Sue had been my Teacher then, though my attention may not have been as good as it is now! Thank you Sue Cooper for all your help and encouragement ! I am very grateful indeed!
