Former student, Susan, “had a wonderful time on the Simply Oils course, loved every minute and am quite missing you all (understatement). Please give my huge thanks to Vanda for her wonderful tuition and to Glynn for his technical assistance and compliments. I have very fond memories of them both and all of the students who were such a pleasure to meet. Thanks to you Jim for such a lovely welcome and looking after us all so beautifully. Thanks to Lucy for making sure we were all fed and watered with such friendliness and smiles. Thanks obviously to Martin and Jane for setting the whole thing up and providing the inspiration for me to want to practice, practice, practice painting and come on another course with you.”

Norfolk Painting School, art student, art class, norfolk, oil paintingJo Jutsum “booked myself and my daughter onto the simply oils course. I’ve ‘dabbled’ but my daughter was a total beginner. The two days of tuition and painting were excellent. So much so, we’ve started painting and producing art that we’re quite proud of. So, we’ve booked on the next course. Can’t wait to get back there! Can’t recommend it high enough.”

Lizzie Hall found it “excellent, inspiring and life enhancing. I loved studying with Martin on the diploma course. The family are so supportive and friendly. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

Christ Plaw found it a “great place, great people and accommodation. You learn more here than anywhere else. Highly recommended by me.”
