    Just had a fantastic weekend learning how to paint in oils. Well pitched at beginner level, covers all the basics in an easily digestible fashion. Marc is a very enthusiastic teacher. I came away with two oil paintings that I was proud of considering I hadn’t painted in nearly 40 years! Highly recommended and I will be back for more lessons.

    Cannot rate this highly enough! When I booked on to the introduction to oil painting course I was a bit nervous about how clueless I was! I needn’t have worried. I was instantly put at ease and really enjoyed the course. Marc was fantastic- very informative and patient. I will definitely be booking more of his courses in the future.

    I’ve completed a 2 day beginners’ oil painting course. Having never painted with oils I was a little apprehensive but, I felt instantly at ease within a short space of time. Marc is an excellent teacher and his passion for art is obvious. I feel I have learned a lot in a short space of time. Perhaps even more importantly, I’ve come away with a real desire to paint with oils.
    I hope to attend more of Marc’s classes and would highly recommend him to anyone. He’s very helpful and approachable.

    Well, just had a fabulous two days learning to paint in oils at Tuner’s Painting School. Marc was so friendly and patient I soon felt at ease even though I had never painted with oils before. The studio is located in the beautiful Walton Gardens and I was initially greeted by a nice smile and a cup of tea. Marc is such a good tutor and an outstanding painter and his passion has inspired me to continue painting in oils and practicing the techniques I have learned over the last two days. I will definitely attend more of Marc’s classes and would recommend this course for anyone looking for a beginners course in oil painting.

    Thank you Marc !

    Marc has developed a unique style of teaching oil colour painting for beginners to advanced painters. In the 2- day course he covers a lot of groundwork, providing all materials at an extremely reasonable price and you learn techniques of old masters. I am not aware of any professional artist giving such value for service. He has in-depth
    knowledge pigments, paints, brushes, canvas, techniques perspectives and seeing a picture from one’s mind’s eyes to develop one’s own technique. Besides he has patience which is a virtue.
