Precision Drawing Course:

'Many thanks for a fabulous workshop. I really enjoyed it and while I cannot say that drawing is my new passion, I am at least slightly keener than I was. I know I really need the skills. It is a great exercise for improving hand-eye coordination. I must keep working at it.' Clive Wilson.

Chinese Brush Painting:

'Leo Donaghy teaches with knowledge, skill and patience, a sense of humour, is realistic and caring. He is remarkably capable and demonstrates the sensitivity and connection with nature and objects that the Chinese love.' Margo Jolly

'As ever, I thoroughly enjoyed your course. You always put so much into it, all working solidly from beginning to end but great fun too.' Janet Falcon.
