I never thought I could draw or was creative until I met Kimbra. Her talent for teaching, her encouragement, enthusiasm and patience led me on a journey of discovery and enjoyment that I couldn't have imagined at the beginning. I can thoroughly recommend taking the plunge whatever your age or ability.
"Attending painting classes with Kimbra over the years has taught me to view the natural world differently. As a tutor her patience and encouragement are extraordinary. I highly recommend her classes and method of teaching to anyone interested in drawing and/or painting".
With a long absence from art, this year with Kimbra has been just what I needed to get my creativity flowing again.
Kimbra is a very inspiring, encouraging and patient teacher who is passionate about art and teaching. Her teaching method has helped me to excel at the next level and I look forward to learning new techniques in the future.
At the ripe age of 56 I felt the lifelong pull to draw and paint. As I had not drawn a single thing since the age of 11 it took a great deal of courage to go to my first art class. I was inspired to go to Kimbra because a dear friend had quickly become an amazing watercolour artist, had learnt from scratch from Kimbra and is now hooked.
Learning to draw on the right side of the brain has been a pleasurable experience and learning from such a master makes it all easier. Following my inner longing has brought me great joy and self respect. My future feels full and exciting!
Kimbra's gentle, positive and ever encouraging teaching style , combined with a non -threatening and relaxing atmosphere , with like- minded people , make her classes thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding . They are my weekly highlight and I've had 5 years of them !
“I used to go for walks and think “what a lovely flower”, now I see its colour, shape, tonal effects, the light hitting it and shadows and can’t wait to go home and draw or paint it. That’s what Art classes with Kimbra has given me. A new way of seeing things an escape into my own world for a little while each day. It’s me time and to think I could barely draw a straight line 4 years ago.” Awesome!
I have no natural talent but thanks to Kimbra’s excellent teaching skills and support I am now able to produce work that I would not have dreamt of being able to achieve. Drawing is a marvellous occupation with tremendous rewards. Being able to draw has enhanced my awareness of my surroundings and has given me a greater understanding of colour and detail. I highly recommend her as an art teacher.
