Feedback from our Students:

"
Lance [O'Gorman] is a wonderful artist and tutor, encouraging, with a variety of styles and techniques demonstrated. I’m thankful for the opportunity, in our wonderful local facility. I plan to carry on with art. Thank you very much."

"
As always, it was an absolute pleasure to be in your class Brian [Millard]. You are truly an amazing, dedicated and very generous teacher, thank you! Really looking forward to next term for new challenges and development."

"Heather [Bell] is a wonderful pottery tutor. She adapted to when we wanted structured or unstructured lessons, help or independence, and catered for the class's interests for the techniques we covered. She is both friendly and talented and we enjoyed the class so much we're coming back again next term."

“I like getting to spend time with my friends and teacher and trying out different arts.” (Student, 7 years old)

“As a parents of a little art lover, I love that my daughter can be part of creative community of same aged kids. She looks forward to her classes every week. Her imagination has increased a lot since joining MAC.”

"Thank you for all you do for the children's holiday programme. It's such a great opportunity for the kids to explore art in ways they don't usually experience. Can't wait to see what's on offer next school holidays!"
