Here are some student comments:

"Working with Mel is a rare joy. The skills of looking, observing colours, shapes and composition begin to take over your world. Studying paintings from afar changes to really close up scruitiny, in an effort to understand the brush work and examine techniques that are mysterious and wonderful.

As a complete beginner Mel gives you the art of the possible, a sense of your own unique style and what you can produce if you can trust in yourself. There are plenty of opportunities to aquire new skills and techniques with masses of ideas and inspiration in a calm happy place.

Her style is unforced, but Mel does push you beyond your comfort zone and it is a delight to discover what can be achieved because of her belief in you. What more could anyone ask."
Pauline - Ascot

"What I learnt from Melanie was to really look at what I was drawing or painting and find a pattern which would help to transfer what I had seen to paper or canvas.

However the greatest delight of the lessons was to learn the power of colour and how to achieve the desired effect.

I found Melanie very patient and encouraging to a total beginner , constantly seeking the latent creativity so that I was encouraged to put the effort in to increase my skills." Laurie - Sandhurst.
