What the parents say:

'I also wanted to say that I really appreciate you running this club.  Ben is getting so much out of it and I often see things he's learnt at your club in his art work which he does at home and school.  I am also amazed that over the time he's been coming you have always found something new to do with them.'  


Debbie Parsons, Mum of Ben aged 7

What the kids say:

'Dear Jo,


Lily loved the club, her drawings of cats are much improved and she told us that you also had a look at artists’ drawings.


I am impressed, this club seems to be very well done, thank you!

Kind regards, Ursula'

'Charlie absolutely loves your classes!'


Karen , Mum of Charlie aged 11 years

'Hi Jo,


The boys had a great time during the Halloween workshop. Let me know if you are doing something on Christmas.


Thank you.



'Dear Jo,


I hope you are well.  Firstly I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter loves your class, her art has changed dramatically since joining art club on a Thursday afternoon.


Many thanks,


What employers say:

'Thanks for your hard work Jo. I understand that the students really enjoyed your sessions, that sign up and attendance was excellent (always a good sign!) and that you were well-prepared and enthusiastic. I hope it was a positive experience for you as well.'
