Drawing May 2016

Here is a copy of the photobook made for our first course of the year, Drawing for Beginners, great people and great fun

srinathsmallWe have had a fantastic time at your home. You are wonderful hosts. Caroline, you are a wonderful ‘art’ teacher and you taught me in a relaxed state of mind and introduced me to the world of drawing and enjoying it. I have learnt more in this week than in many years of hoping to be able to draw. Best, productive week in many, many years. Thank you. Andrea you are a wonderful chef, you made us the best Italian food we have ever had. Thank you for letting Vasanta join you in the kitchen and , of course, allowing her to cook.Thank you for everything. Srinath and Vasanta, UK

jansmallWell this holiday just has to rate as one of the best weeks we have spent in a long while! We have been in the company of fine friends and the most warm and inviting host family. Caroline has steered us towards our artistic goals with patience and good humour. Andrea’s meals were so appetising and expertly prepared and cooked with the ‘love’ of a true Italian. Wonderful! We have both learnt so much with the best Art tuition, the best food and fun and laughter every day. Is it wine time yet?. A truly wonderful time in a stunning setting with you all and our lovely fellow students – We really loved it! Thank you so much. Jan & Anthea, North Yorkshire, UK

trishsmallI was hesitant to take a holiday alone, especially so far from home and in a part of Italy with which I was unfamiliar. From Caroline’s patient email responses, to Andrea’s ‘Goodfellas’ imitation – from Maisie’s yummy Bogtotters Chocolate cake and Letta’s heartwarming giggle (and photo of Yussien) you all made me feel so welcome. We were fortunate to have such a lively and lovely group of guests. Caroline, I promise to stop seeing the world as lines. I wish you all a wonderful summer and hope you aren’t too challenged in having such a humorous gang as us in your coming sessions. Thank you Andrea, for the most amazing meals and Caroline – Thank you for a most valuable and rewarding week of art instruction and good laughs (PS you are all welcome to visit my home ANYTIME!!).
