The artist Sarah Bell is an inspirational teacher for painting and drawing but also for enabling her students to truly see the beauty of what is around us and how to capture its essence.

Here's what her students say:

  • "Sarah is a brilliant tutor and explains everything so clearly." - L. Townsend.
  • "What was most special about the whole experience was Sarah herself - a gem of a teacher because she's a unique human being who has the capacity to selflessly share her God-given gift with others." - L. Turner.
  • "Her expertise is stunning... demonstrations are frequent, hugely useful, and technically perfect." - Dr S. Feneley, Oxford University.
