"I just want to say what a lovely day I had yesterday finding out about colour mixing. I can honestly say you made sense of a subject I’d never be able to understand. I said I had a light bulb moment and I did!
I must say your teaching style is outstanding. You are gentle, positive and understanding. You made me feel at easy and ready to take in the information you demonstrated. It was a joy to see."
"Thank you for the fabulous workshop you tutored here on Saturday. It really was tremendously enjoyable as well as beneficial in so many ways.
I have already had such positive feedback and mostly asking for a return visit Next year. Thank you for sharing all your secrets with us and mostly for the exceptionally generous individual attention you gave to each member, we were spoilt"
"Tom gave a live oil painting demonstration for the Rugby & District Art Society and his technical skills, enthusiasm and clear, honest presentation connected so well with the audience that we asked him to return for a workshop.
His clever use of colour and light gives his work a unique freshness and vigour, and his use of imagery and breadth of subject matter is most impressive."
Paul T, Rugby Art Society
"Tom, is a natural teacher. His demonstrations and one on one support were helpful as well as insightful.
I am very inexperienced but i feel that to teach and demonstrate techniques and knowledge was more important than the medium used."
"Tom I know I have said this before but you are an extremely articulate teacher and the demonstrations given throughout the five day course were invaluable.
You give of yourself in a calm thoughtful manner which has enabled me to gain confidence and to further my skills in painting."
"I have attended several of Tom's painting workshops and have found them to be most enjoyable.
Tom is an enthusiastic and friendly teacher introducing us to new techniques and keen for us to improve our painting style while having fun.
Like my fellow student I leave the class looking forward to the next workshop."
"Tom's skills are not just in composing and progressing his own work to a high standard, but in encouraging and developing the potential in others.
He shows patience, enthusiasm and a natural empathy with aspiring artists that makes his workshops a real joy to attend, with excellent results."
"Tom is an excellent art teacher. During our time there we had art demos on a variety of themes such as tones in paint and colour mixing techniques and ideas.
Then we were free to set up our own paintings with lots of one to one personal tuition and support from Tom, who was endlessly patient and helpful."
