Sense of Community
I joined the classes as a novice and the transformation I’ve undergone has been remarkable. It has helped me to develop skills I previously believed were beyond my reach. There’s a sense of community in our class that I cherish — we learn from each other as much as from our fantastic instructor
Thoughtful and Constructive
Being part of these art classes has been an exhilarating experience. Each session brings forth new techniques, tools, and perspectives that have added richness and depth to my artwork. The feedback I receive is thoughtful and constructive, allowing me to improve while retaining my personal style.
Redefined My Preconceptions
The drawing classes I have taken at Stoke Lodge completely redefined my preconceptions of drawing. The instructor’s patient guidance has helped me unlock an artistic side I never knew I had. Now, not only can I create my own pieces, but I understand and appreciate art more deeply.
Warm & Encouraging Environment
It’s been a journey of self-discovery for me. I came into this course with a bit of hesitation but the warm, encouraging environment created by our talented instructor made all the difference. Their approach to teaching drawing — focusing on both technique and expression — is absolutely brilliant.
