Artable had not been open long when I started classes I was so excited that finally there was an avenue to learn and develop my drawing skills. I have seen the studio grow into an amazing inspirational place. With the teaching, guidance and encouragement of the "amazing" tutors such as Gillian and Leisa I am blown away at what I am now able to draw this would not have happened without them. My experience at Artable has been a place to learn in a fun relaxed environment, share encouragement, be inspired, have a cuppa and cake with friends.

After a lifetime of wanting to draw but thinking l wasn't good enough, l finally took the step of booking in. It's the best thing l've done in years. Gillian’s ability to bring out the best of your skills is amazing, whether it's drawing, painting or another medium. I look forward to every class.

Caroline Hamilton - Student

To think at 49 years of age I could be taught how to draw was fantastic. Our class is friendly, social, fun and never dull thanks to all the amazing artists involved. I always look forward to my class and producing works of art that are now proudly hanging on my walls!

Sue Tobin - Student

A great adventure and discovery for hidden talents that i would never have realised, if they weren't first unveiled in the drawing class and then nurtured in the acrylic painting classes. They really encouraged my confidence in the comfort of a very relaxing and friendly environment, including outside excursions with the plein air workshops!
