Student Review

‘Cathy van Ee is a fabulous artist and a wonderful teacher. She teaches both oil and pastel painting and excels in both art forms. I have been learning oil painting from Cathy for a couple of years now and have been so impressed with her inclusiveness and the way she shares her knowledge so willingly. She is always so generous with her time and has an amazing eye for detail. It is this eye for detail that makes the difference between a good portrait and a great portrait or a good landscape and a great landscape. Cathy’s advice is always much appreciated and her expertise greatly valued. I couldn’t recommend Cathy more highly’

Student Zoom Reviews

 ‘This is one of the best and most inspiring art classes I have attended. Cathy is a very positive and encouraging tutor who puts a lot of work into helping students develop their own art.’ 
Sheila McLean

 Cathy’s Zoom classes are terrific. We learn from not only what she teaches us in her discussion of painting, but also from her slides, her critiques of our work, her live, detailed demonstrations of pastel painting and from the contributions of the other members of the class. All this and more from the comfort of your own home. Cathy’s Zoom classes are well worth it!
