    Hello It was good experience to learn more about sketching though it was a bit challenging to me. Tutor was very helpful to teach me with best knowledge and skills he has. Wish the center all of the best. Regards Kifah

    Realy intersting course. If I could do a personal suggestion, it could be interesting to speak sometimes about story of Chinese painting and some artists. Not to understand just the technical way, but explain more about the soul of this painting. Thank you for your reception and see you soon ! Tommy

    As usual a really enjoyable class.As advised to Yuen, it would be great to have a few exercises to show how to hold and use the brush for the particular topic of the night before we launch into our full composition. There is plenty of time for this in the 3 hour class and will help everyone improve their technique

    Good first lesson. Very warm room though, and the music could have been a little quite when everyone had their heads down or tutor was giving instructions.

  • 6smaller group so that can get more attention from the tutor and use our time efficiently. It is little bit expensive without the groupon discount. This is the only reason which is holding me back to have further lessons at sunny art studio. Otherwise Great place to pursue once hobby and learn further   08 January, 2013 Reply
