” I absolutely loved my Art lesson. Emma is a great teacher, very patient and professional. I was thrilled with the painting I created – It proved that you are never too old to learn! Addicted now. I will be back for more lessons. Highly recommended”

Emma Barnes

” We invited Emma in as we wanted the children to study a female artist, plus we were exploring texture and Emma’s work links well to this.”
“She spent an afternoon with both of our Year 5 classes, and talked about her journey to getting to where she is now. “
“The class were then shown the varying techniques Emma uses to create different effects and texture in her paintings.”

“Each child then had the chance to produce their own paintings in a similar style to the artist.”
“The children thoroughly enjoyed the session, and produced some fantastic pieces of artwork. “
“It was great for them to have the opportunity to hear firsthand from a local person who has pursued her dreams and is making it a reality.”

” My 1-2-1 art session with Emma at her studio in Gilberdyke was one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever had! I was really happy with the painting I did, and couldn’t wait to pick it up and take it home to show everyone!”
