Thank you Sarah for such a relaxing couple of hours at the watercolour taster session at Torbay Hospital last month. I hadn’t done any painting at all since I left school in 1986 so I was feeling a bit daunted. However, you soon put everyone at ease, and with your relaxed and inspiring style of teaching you soon made everyone feel confident enough to give it a go. The £304 raised for the Intensive Care Unit and Louisa Cary Children’s Ward was an amazing achievement also, well done! I am now very…
The day started in Sampsons Restaurant over morning coffee. It gave us all a chance to relax, which was very reassuring. Sarah put everyone at ease with her lovely, bubbly personality. Sarah’s instruction was very clear, and backed up with well prepared notes for everyone. In the afternoon, the full extent of Sarah’s experience and expertise became apparent. She seemed to find almost unlimited time for each of us, coming round regularly to offer help and support. There was no pressure, yet I…
It was inspirational! Sarah demonstrated different techniques and made it all look so easy. She spent time with everyone, building their confidence. With each new technique there was a handout explaining all the details (useful at home). We talked of composition, form and colour with the helpful eye of our tutor, who was genuinely pleased with our attempts. I have signed up for another session. http://www.devonlife.co.uk
What a fun time my daughter Tilly had with my Dad at the watercolours workshop. Really enjoyed mixing paints to create colours and gave her confidence in her own abilities! She produced some great, colourful pictures that she was very proud of and it was a lovely environment in which my Dad could enjoy something different with her. Plus the cake I hear was wonderful. Definately love to do it again!
My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the two day “Magic of Watercolours” followed by the two days Acrylics workshop. Sarah is just lovely – extremely talented and a great teacher! Sampsons Farm is homely, comfortable, friendly and the food was delicious. Would love to return in the future.
I went to the drawing workshop yesterday and enjoyed it immensely. I had tried to draw but found that I had lost all of the skill I had built up many years ago. However just during this one day workshop I was amazed at how much was achieved and really proud of the drawings I took home. Thank you Sarah for a really great day and I now feel inspired with more confidence to practice more.
What a fantastic workshop! I attended the 2 day Watercolours for Beginners course and have been wonderfully inspired. Sarah is a brilliant tutor and explains everything so clearly. I was amazed at the pictures I produced over the two days. We were a group of seven and all got on so well, it was a lovely way to learn. Will definitely be on another course in the near future. Thanks Sarah.
I attended Sarah Bell’s workshop on “Sea, Sky and Boats”. Her expertise is stunning and she is able to solve every student’s difficulty with clear,immediate,technical advice. She knows watercolour from every angle, adhering to time honoured classical principles that are, without a doubt, of the highest Professorial standard. Her demonstrations are frequent, hugely useful,and technically perfect. Whether one is a professional, a beginner, an amateur or merely keen to know what the Great British …
What a great day! Although not advertised as such I think ” The Magic of Watercolours” would also inspire the beginner… as much as broaden the scope of more experienced artists. This was my third workshop with Sarah ( which must say something!)…..and my favourite so far! I love her style of teaching, encouraging , fun and very important for me ….. what I learn is useful!
Spent a most enjoyable afternoon with Sarah, and learned a lot about colour ! I am inspired to practise more and experiment with flower painting. Thank you, Sarah!!
