Rick thank you so much. Your teaching was a total revelation and has re-sparked my interest in painting with watercolours. You’re the best tutor I’ve had despite classes from top tutors at the Chelsea College of Art in London. Great effort from you – thanks again.


My Art class experience at Youmans Studio was so constructive for me. It was my first lesson and it made me want to keep learning and practising more. I am so glad to have the opportunity to learn from Rick who is a super talented person and a very nice teacher. Recommended for all levels!
