I came to Jo's classin January 2016 with absolutely no expectations. I have never painted before or attempted anthing artistic and found this class is more than just an art class. It's a community of people who encourage and learn from each other but the most amazing part is that Jo teaches different techniques, inspires me to believe in myself and encourages me to espress myself through art. I feel so calm her and feel that I can "do no wrong". She has instilled in me a love for painting. A very unique and gifted teacher with a magice touch! Thankyou. Jean Scola
"Jo is an amazing artist and teacher. I have wanted learn to oil paint for a long time but could never pluck up the courage. By good fortune I met Jo and she offered to teach me and I leapt at the chance! I had a fantastic day. Jo is inspirational, she taught me to use oils but more than that she made me believe I could do it. I can't wait to learn more!" Shanee Buxton - Head Teacher
"I started the Art Class to learn a new skill but it has ended up being so much more. I find I am engaged in creating without worrying about what it means, or where it is going, it has become a way for me of being in the present. It is a fabulously warm and non judgemental environment to recharge the batteries and have fun." Jenny Gooding
"I've not held a paintbrush since I left school, but a few months ago I joined one of Jo's classes and I loved it!
"I have never painted, well nothing other than walls and ceilings, so I guess I started your course really just as something different to try. I had no expectations to be able to actually ‘do’ anything, but wow, I love it. You’re a great teacher, and I get so completely absorbed in what I am doing I forget everything else.
It’s great fun, and as you say, I can do no wrong J xx"
" was Introduced to Jo's Art Classes by a friend in June, never had I picked up an art brushin my life. I was not convinced that this was for me, but was willing to give it a try. On arriving I was made so very welcome by Jo and the other ladies in the group. I felt very comfortable and had so much fun with help and being taught by Jo who has more patience and laughter than anyone I know, I produced a wonderful (I think) painting, and was always given so much support and confidence by this lady. Now serveral months on I'm still painting, tea and great company, and never feeling like I can't do it, because with Jo I can, I know this because she tells me every single week." Joan Major
"Just did a painting workshop using palette knife. Not only did I bring home a lovely painting t show off, I had such an enjoyable day painting with a group of friends, with coffee and cake breaks. Then to a lovely lunch and back to painting. It was so relaxing and fun that the time just flew by, came back tired but so happy that I have achieved another step in my painting. Thank you Jo for sharing your art knowledge with us." Pat Watson
"I have just done one of Jo's Workshops, a full day learning how to produce a piece of art with acrylic and pallet knives, a completely new thing for me, what an amazing day! I took a wonderful painting home, my husband now thinks I am some sort of art genius, the genius however happens to be Jo, and her belief in everyone who learns with her will be able to paint, and you know what? you can.... We started with a practice board to get the hang of things then with jo doing an example painting that showed the technique we started on the real "thing" all the while Jo was going round the small group helping when needed and instilling confidence, a wonderful day, morning coffee and flapjacks, a very tasty lunch and joy of joy afternoon tea with more delicious flapjacks! what a perfect way to spend your day."Joan Major
