Having booked just one session to try, I have already signed up to a bundle. The class is so relaxed and the Jess is amazing with her help, technical assistance and feedback, which is pitched at just the right level. Just what I needed to get going again. Would recommend this class no matter what you're standard.

I had a lovely time the last 2 Tuesday evening sessions on the 9th and 16th November in Purley Art K . Jess is a very helpful and friendly person and is great at advice for what you can do. Its ashame that the Tuesday evenings have to come to an end and they can only offer day sessions on Thursday mornings as a lot of people like me won't be able to attend day sessions due to working. I had originally done a few sessions before Covid happened which I was enjoying doing but it stopped due to the pandemic and I didn't know until a month ago that the evening sessions werent going to happen .Hopefully they will be able to bring back on a different evening as I had a lot of fun doing my lino cutting and lino printing during the last two sessions and being able to create anything I want with a range of materials and excellent advice from the lovely Jess who runs the class.

I learnt different techniques and have used various mediums. I prefer the informal style which is not like a traditional classroom! As an adult I do enjoy those teachers that have been forthright and provided honest feedback!
David Giles - 5 January 2020
I I feel I've learnt an awful lot since starting my art class. The sessions are enjoyable and fun . Pip (our tutor) is very helpful and approachable . I look forward to the class every week.

Extremely friendly teacher with a very discerning eye. Excellent instruction.
Janssy Chen - 11 December 2019
I joined the Purley branch since it started, experienced a few tutors so far, they were all very nice and helpful, particularly Stephanie and Pip. I like the teaching style of ArtK because they are not strictly asking you to follow some boring technics. As an adult beginner, I can do almost whatever I like with their instructions and help. I have more confidence with my brush and colour blending now. I need more practice in portraits. But it does not matter you are not very good at something. More important is to choose kind of art you like and have fun and peaceful time for yourselves, who would say no to that? The venue is superb too, my son is in the children’s class on Saturday and he has other activities around Purley too, like swimming and Karate, so it’s basically a convenient area. Not even talk about the bus 466 can take us directly between home and the venue, so not much stress for parking! Thanks Art K, you brought me something enjoyable in my life.
Jeremy - 23 August 2019
I thoroughly enjoy attending art classes and Pip (art teacher) is extremely helpful and supportive. I am always so pleased with the art I create in the sessions and the relaxed atmosphere gives me the confidence to step outside my comfort zone and attempt new styles of painting. I look forward to continuing my learning and using more materials.
Joe - 23 August 2019
Pip is a fantastic teacher, and I am really enjoying the classes and feel my drawing and painting has improved massively. I had never done anything other than painting before, and now I really enjoy making things in 3D! Would definitely recommend to any ability.
Andrea - 23 August 2019
Absolutely loved getting creative at this wonderful class! Thank you for going the extra mile and making sure I was comfortable with all the mediums available!
