An essential ingredient of any art course is the artwork you produce. Most art courses these days place a lot of emphasis on your research and supporting information, which is valuable. But, what if you could really paint and draw? What if you could blow people away (including examiners) with great paintings or drawings? Surely this is...

Some ideas: what it is you want to paint, why you want to paint it, how you want the painting to look, what idea or feeling you want to get across, how you would like to present it to the world, etc. You must have some ideas about a...

"Thank you, Sonny, for helping teach our son different aspects of painting and drawing for the last 4 years in which time Jay's work has developed and broadened enormously. He was able to include a couple of pieces he painted with you as part of his portfolio for a successful Art Scholarship to Charterhouse School and we are in no doubt of the valuable contribution you made in helping him obtain that award."

...I can't quite still believe it in my own mind, but I got an A* overall. It’s incredible how much my skill improved since AS and I really feel I took a huge leap between the two years. I have you to thank for that along with the support from my parents, that I really appreciate all the help and support that you gave me. I wouldn't have been able to make it into such a good university without your help! "
