'Thank you so much for the life class last night. We both loved it and will be back for more. I am an absolute beginner and my friend is an accomplished artist and so just between the two of us the tutor had a job to lead a class that would give something to everyone. He did it; we feel liberated and refreshed and I learnt how to approach life drawing with an open mind. It really was excellent'.
