Additional information

A few Testimonials for Joe’s classes.
“Having enjoyed Joe’s class, I really enjoyed reflecting on how I thought differently about using colour in achieving depth with using a variety of colour. I really enjoyed working with him. Joe’s encouragement gave me a sense of achievement.”

“I really enjoyed his class in 2022. I felt that I gained considerable understanding of what abstraction involves and I followed up on investigating a number of the artists who Joe referenced in the course.”

”I still have the painting which I created in his classes. It has been hanging in my living room all this time and it still brings me joy and inspiration. The classes were a great freeing and learning experience for me when I really needed it.”

“I’ve done Joe’s course twice now and always produce several new works, learn new techniques and have great fun.
