Some kind testimonials from our 2019 painting course in Italy:

“Had an absolutely amazing week in Italy with you all. I loved everything about it – from the location to the company, the food and of course the inspired, instructional yet unobtrusive teaching. Rachael and Gareth were great fun and a great team.” Carol Sloan

“I just got back from a fantastic course with Rachael Reeves and Gareth Edwards based in a little villa-hotel on the Tuscan/Umbrian border. They were a great teaching combo – so positive and encouraging, helping all the students to identify areas to work on, supporting everyone to make progress. The course focused on landscape, but they are totally up for supporting artists to develop in whatever genre they are working in. I feel very empowered to take my work to the next stage. We were with Rachael and Gareth from breakfast to bedtime for 7 days, they were fun to be with, lovely people.

I first met Gareth on the one-week landscape course at Newlyn and two of the other students had also learnt with him there at different times – the fact that we followed him to Tuscany is testament to his teaching. I can report that G and R live up to what great teachers should be; being consultative and responsive to students’ needs and interests. As well as working as a professional artist, Rachael teaches on an Access and Foundation to art and Design course, and at a charity for people with learning difficulties, thoroughly recommend this course”
