Student Review
“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!
Christine Denny

I have been to several art courses and can say that Cathy is one of the best art teachers. At first I was not sure if online classes can replace face-to-face teaching. However, when I enrolled in Cathy’s online course I was really surprised that it was possible. Cathy’s lessons are excellent: well planned and structured, interesting and inspiring.

A three and a half hour class consists of four parts: critique, theory, demonstration & discussion.

Critiques are a very helpful part. It is helpful not only because Cathy explains how your painting can be improved, but also because the critique of other students’ paintings is helpful to understand what can be taken into account in your future paintings.

Theory is one of my favourite parts. Paintings of prominent artists are shown and discussed by Cathy to support the class topic.

All demonstrations are excellent: 

The board and easel for demonstrations are set in a way that one can clearly see what is going on. All the stages of the painting process are discussed and explained • Cathy makes comments while painting and answers questions • Along with demonstrations Cathy regularly takes photos and then sends them to us. I often paint along with Cathy, it is very instructive.

It is fun to discuss at the end of the class what we learned in it, what was new for us etc. We share our thoughts and feelings. After each class with Cathy I feel energised, motivated, happy and confident with my painting.
