I was pleased that I had joined the Foundation course – I've always believed I had some talent but had had no formal instruction since 'O' level. I gained in confidence and understand that I must learn to 'walk before I run' – I will hopefully be able to continue to Foundation Drawing II.

Our tutor, Mark Hinchcliffe, was able to give us a valuable amount of individual attention and as a result, we were able to develop in different ways that were tailored to our requirements. Thank you Mark for being insightful, supportive and kind.
