I took an incredible amount away from Diarmaid’s classes and would describe them as educational, inspiring and lots of fun! Diarmaid is a natural born teacher and a true master at his craft. As someone who loves art and draws as a hobby, I found that Diarmaid’s infectious passion opened my eyes to the mind blowing complexities of oil painting and allowed me to express my creativity which was complemented by his positive mentoring and encouragement. The relaxed, inspiring atmosphere of the studio and the friendly group of people which I met along the way was a wonderful bonus! This experience was definitely one of the highlights of my year!
