Here are some recent comments from students:
"Mr Palmers' course was wonderful - he led us by his kindly creative spirit on the path to higher attainment and confidence - we never imagined we could achieve so much improvement within such a short time - thank you so much".
"I learned a lot from the course. Colin was an excellent tutor whose preparation and teaching could not be faulted. We all had tremendous fun."
"The most enjoyable and educational course I have attended for a long time. I would highly recommend it."
"Extraordinary effective tutor Colin Palmer took every trouble to ensure we ALL got a great advance in our skills. In my case a disorder of the hands, numbness and pain was not allowed by Colin to prevent me to getting a very good grounding in all aspects of painting buildings after I had initially feared I would not survive even one day of the course because of my disability. He is a master both of painting buildings and of the teaching process. The way both the best and the least talented course members all massively progressed was very remakable "
"Colin is always excellent. His preparation is always spot on. He is a perfectionist in his detail and explanations and always has a 'can do' attitude even to those of us who are not the best artists. We always turn out work of a high standard with his help. I look forward to doing a course with him again".
"The tutor was immensely patient and helpful in providing assistance to those requiring it at all levels. For someone like myself, having only started painting last year, I learnt an enormous amount including techniques that one could only learn through being taught in practice.
As a person, he was immensely polite and encouraging at all times and I couldn't recommend him enough".
