"Issy has had one-on-one lessons with Claire for over five years. Claire’s calm, thoughtful and inspirational teaching works as well for an eight year old as it does for a now emerging teenager. Lessons are fun - Issy’s been encouraged to tryall sorts of styles and media – but purposeful. It’s been great to see Issy’s technique, confidence and artistic flair continue to develop with Claire. The art scholarship was good too!"
