"I’ve seen the differences in my daughter's art that comes out of her school classes, classes at Orleans House and your classes, and I can tell the quality of the teaching must make a big difference to the result."

- Hugo

"My daughter loves her Art Class - it's not only fun, she's learnt a lot and her drawing has really improved since she started. She's always happy and enthused at the end of the session, and has some really impressive work to take away."
