I have very fond memories of my time with Jean Elliot, at Studio Jean. After starting there in 2012 it was the highlight of my week for Saturday to come around, cycle to Thomsonlaan and spend the morning painting in the studio. Jean created a wonderful atmosphere in her teaching environment. There were practical art skills taught, positive encouragement, great teaching and an introduction to methods and materials that I still use today. For the two years whilst there I learnt a lot and, with Jean’s instructions, improved steadily with each painting. It was a pleasure to be taught by someone who can both paint as well as teach and I’d highly recommend joining a course at Studio Jean if you wish to learn practical art skills in a positive environment.
