"Our 6 year old daughter really enjoys her art lessons and looks forward to them every week. She learnt to mix colours and paint very well within a short period of time. Katherine worked with her to help her express her creativity, offering improvements and suggestions which Nivrithi really enjoyed. We would highly recommend Katherine to any youngster who wants to dabble in art and paint.

"I joined Katherine Milnsí Life Drawing Class as a complete beginner in August 2009. Iíve been every week that Iíve been able to ever since.

Let me explain. Iíd finally decided to start drawing and painting in May of that year. As I said, I was a complete beginner but I did know that skills of looking and drawing are best learned in life class. So, in fear and trepidation, I turned up not sure of what to expect. Katherine was great. She put us four beginners at our ease and then straight away got us drawing before the nerves took over. What an encourager Ė I look back at those early drawings with embarrassment but Katherine was always positive, always encouraging and always ready with gentle but firm guidance.

Since those early days Iíve been encouraged to try drawing with many mediums, pastel, pen and oil sketching are some of them.

When I was having trouble with oil pastels I booked some one-to-one tuition with Katherine. This was great. I had intensive sessions on both the particular techniques of oil pastel and their application in a drawing which gave me the confidence to carry on with them.

Soon after, I decided to apply to University to study Art. I looked to Katherine for advice and guidance. Through a series of one-to-one tutorials she supported me in selecting, developing and assembling work for my portfolio. Her help and encouragement though these tutorials and at life class was pivotal to my success. Iím now studying part-time at University Campus Barnsley, a part of University of Huddersfield, on an Art and Design B.A. honours course. Itís brilliant. And I still come to Life Drawing classes every week. I see them as foundational to the rest of my art development, and I still very much value the encouragement and guidance which Katherine gives.

The classes now are much as they have always been, a mixture of beginners and more experienced people, relaxed but intense at the same time, always a challenge but always supported, always good teaching with always much to learn and a really pleasant welcoming atmosphere."
