Tutor Support

All our courses are written to be complete in themselves. However we realise that students may appreciate being able to get clarification about various things as they work through their programme as well wanting reassurance that they are putting techniques into practice effectively. The tutors provide the technical support to deal with relevant queries.

Most courses have their own dedicated Tutor. The tutor keeps the course up to date and relevant to today's students. They are available to the individual student for advice and encouragement. Each course has regular exercises and assignments that are constructed in such a way as to give the student the opportunity to practice the techniques learnt on the course and to test themselves as they go along. The student is encouraged to submit the assignment work to the college for the tutor to critique. The student's work will be returned together with the tutor's personal critique. On many courses the assignment work may be suitable for inclusion in a student's Portfolio of Work that could be very useful later. The college will use the assignments submitted as the basis for any award of a letter, certificate or diploma.

Testimonials from students

I do work slowly as for almost 10 years there was not the time for me to paint, so my confidence is a bit low. Having said that, I must say that the course and your kind way of criticising my work is being beneficial. The course itself is covering all that I had hoped for and has reawakened my love for painting.

Christine Solly

This is my first on line course and I enjoyed the freedom to work at home. My tutor gave me honest and generous feedback on my efforts at painting the human body, and although still very much an amatuer I intend to continue the subject taking on board all of Alan Dedman's advice.

Marian Ferguson

This is just a few lines to thank you for the Landscape painting course, I found it extremely tremendous in helping me improve my skills. The course tutor Alan Dedman was fantastic in commenting on my paintings and telling me how i could improve my painting. To get a certificate in the post was absolutely tremendous and unexpected. I have no intention of stopping painting now even if i am 74 years old. Thank you once again.
