Actually it exceeded my expectations. While looking forward to attending, I was concerned that I had only a year’s experience of painting and that I might be out of my depth. But Liz’s teaching was made me feel at home.

I liked the group. I also liked the town, the centre d’arte, and as always Liz is a very intuitive, stimulating tutor. Very well researched course that was constructive as well as being fun.

The fact that this was my third experience of this course and each time I have learned more and it has had changes that continued to challenge says it all.

Gary Long was fantastic, I learnt so much about colour and mixing colour, composition, how to go through the process of stages from the drawing to the actual painting. His demonstrations were brilliant from colour mixing to how to paint the pictures. He gave us all feedback and was encouraging and motivating. His wife Pat was also brilliant making sure we were OK, keeping us stocked up with biscuits and dealing with our queries and always happy and positive. It was like we were part of there family for the time we were together.

Good mixture of demonstration and own painting time. Good location and Gary’s experience of previous visits meant we found interesting sites to sketch and draw. Lots of materials available. Good indoor space with easels. I was well supported and looked after by Gary and his lovely wife. Nice balance of days off to explore the region.

The studio space was wonderful plenty of room to spread out and walk around. Having the tutor at hand was helpful and reassuring.

I really enjoyed the course and got a lot from it. It was a delight to be immersed in the whole art experience at Verrocchio. Thanks to Gary’s experienced tuition and support and his wife’s excellent organisational skills and support it all ran smoothly and made it a wonderful experience.
