"As a relatively new painter I wanted a safe, friendly environment in which to explore my desire to paint. The Avenue Road Arts School is that place. The teachers are not only well distinguished artists in the art community they are also skilled, encouraging and inspiring mentors. The day of my art class has become my favourite day of the week. I look forward to the stimulation of a good lesson and the time to work one on one with the teacher. The camaraderie of my fellow students completes a great session. To be able to learn in such a nurturing space is an experience any aged student would flourish in." - Jane L
