“George is an inspirational tutor – homing in on strengths/weaknesses and encouraging the development of individual styles.  As well as a synopsis of the Old Masters/renowned artists relevant to the medium/style being explored, he demonstrates the various techniques needed before setting the class off on their own project.  George ensures that everyone receives appropriate coaching and his classes are always a positive and enjoyable experience.”

“I’ve been lucky enough to have some sampler art sessions with George.  As a complete beginner myself I have found his teaching style to be fun, informative and engaging.  He is very knowledgeable in various mediums but he certainly comes into his own when teaching us watercolour techniques.  Anyone who has the chance to spend time with George will certainly not go away disappointed.”

“I think it’s important that sessions are fun and supportive. We’ll have lots to talk about, from art appreciation, favourite artists and paintings to addressing your goals, successes and disasters. I’ll be giving group demos and individual guidance. I’ll be your mentor to help you find and develop what you find inspiring in art. You’ll be encouraged every step of the way.”

Courses are held at:

Sydenham is a couple of miles from Chinnor. It’s a picturesque hamlet with thatched houses, a distinctive church and a friendly local pub, The Crown.
The Old School Hall is a restored brick and flint building next to the church situated in the centre of Sydenham. It has ample parking outside and a light, spacious interior giving students plenty of room. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
