Course testimonials:

  • This course was time and money well spent! I thoroughly enjoyed both days, learnt many new skills and produced a couple of pastel paintings that I am very happy with. David Wells is a great tutor without seeming to be "teacher" - his informal style created a relaxed and friendly, non-competitive atmosphere. I'm now very keen to undertake Level two!
  • A focussed but relaxed couple of days working with David on portraiture. He's a master of pastel technique and an excellent tutor. This was just the creative kickstarter I needed to get back into a challenging medium. K.Foy, Withcott
