"Thank you for the private art lesson it really helped me, and I will be asking for more lessons when I return to West Sussex. I found it to be very beneficial - In particular the colour mixing which I have written down and pegged to my easel. I am hoping I can get the family involved in the art lesson next time. I am very happy to give my recommendation and inform all of your excellent tuition!"
— Chris Mead (private tuition)
"I was heartbroken to have to miss several classes this term, but I am delighted to be back. The classes have been so informative, for me they have been a lifesaver. I would like to thank you for your dedication to helping us to paint in such a friendly way. You have taught us so many different techniques, challenging but also great fun. I would recommend the classes to anyone who would enjoy 3 hours of fun, frustration, or fruition."

"I have found the Art Intense Acrylic and Watercolour course this autumn so inspirational. The subject matter and themes have been interesting as well as challenging and I have enjoyed being led out of my comfort zone at times. Briony’s teaching style is lively and attractive and her rapport with course attendees is friendly and easy going. I have learnt many new painting skills in just ten weeks of this course. I would certainly recommend Art Intense to anyone wishing to develop their artistic and creative skills."

"I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I have learned so much this term and been thoroughly challenged. The classes are extremely sociable, relaxed and friendly. My husband and I have signed up for next year! Do have a chat with Bri if you are the slightest bit interested. You won't regret it."

"I can thoroughly recommend this art class. Briony is an excellent teacher, clear, concise and so very helpful, and an excellent artist. She has inspired and guided me through many projects to fruition that would otherwise have landed in the bin. I have learnt so much from her this last term. It is now a focal point to my week and already looking forward to next term. The hall at Blackheath is lovely-light and warm and the class members friendly and supportive."

"Wow! Our first term with Art Intense has been fabulous. Our tutor, Bri, has set us some challenging projects in both acrylic and watercolour but with her tuition, support and advice we have all risen to the challenge. The classes are kept small so we all get plenty of individual help and also we have all got to know each other well. Classes are fun and the time really flies by. I can’t wait for next term when we will have some drawing projects, followed by more acrylic and watercolour."
— Glynis Jodrell
"I am looking forward to returning for the Spring term. Each week we learn new techniques, and improve old ones, through a variety of fun projects. Briony's teaching methods are clear, concise and supportive, with guidance and feedback focussed on each individual student's objectives and progress, so that students of all levels progress in a relaxed and sociable environment."

"The way Briony has prepared for each class and projects have been excellent. Every project has had detailed work sheets with step by step paintings showing the progress. At each class the explanations together with demonstrations before starting on the projects have been first class. Briony is an excellent tutor and if You are already having a go or thinking of trying it, get in touch with her."
— Mike Gunton
“Briony’s art classes have been a breadth of fresh air to attend since September ‘21. Bri has introduced her art classes to a very high level of teaching art techniques using different mediums, art paper and introduced an in-depth knowledge for a variety of paint brushes. This then is turn has been taught to apply to the artwork in class. The class atmosphere is very pleasant and friendly allowing us to look forward to each session the following week. It has allowed the hidden artist to surface with such ease and yet so challenging as well.”

"Bri is an excellent tutor and as a result I am already learning many different techniques. The class demonstrations are well planned and very informative and Bri is on hand to offer advice throughout the lessons. The class members are all very friendly and the subjects are interesting and I look forward to attending every week."

Wokingham improver course - 2021
"I recently attended the six-hour beginners drawing lessons with Briony, that was two hours per day for three days with gaps in between. Briony sent me the materials I would need which was really helpful as I have some but she knew exactly what I needed. The lessons were very well-planned and organised, the internet linking was clear and prevented any hindrance to observing the techniques and listening to Briony‘s instructions and guidance.
Briony‘s instruction was great! The curriculum worked well, and talking through all different aspects of how we were working despite being online felt very hands-on.
Briony‘s manner is warm & encouraging. Her guidance and good feedback really helped. We progressed through a number of core themes experimenting as we went. There was an excellent balance of instruction, practice and a little bit of art history which was relevant to the work we were doing.
Overall, this was a thoroughly enjoyable program and I would recommend Art Intense to anyone who is beginning drawing, or trying to pick up if they just have all the bit on their own. Briony’s manner and method of teaching are very easily taken on board, warm and encouraging - As I’ve already said. Briony will definitely help you make steps forward. I am hoping to pick up on further developments in drawing and painting. If these are online, I have no doubt they will be excellent! Face-to-face I’m sure will be great as well. Thanks Briony very much enjoyed this"
— Brian Ball (online course)
"I have known Briony for about three years, teaching me on an art course. She has an incredible ability to teach and explain all the procedures you will need to know.
As I got confidence and improved she let me develop the style I loved and encouraged me to do more of what I felt I needed to do, giving me guidance and help when I needed it.
She is a lovely woman, has a great sense of humour and fun and we had many great conversations.
I can highly recommend her as an artist."
— Andrea Dombrowe - Guildford course
“Briony has been our teacher for the last year – As part of a team delivering mixed media art techniques to a class of around 25 adults. These mixed media include painting in watercolour and acrylics, oil pastels, dry pastels. Drawing techniques in pencil, charcoal, graphite, chalk, pen and wash. She always delivers strong examples of “the lesson” to the class. Producing wonderful pieces of artwork. Sensitive guidance and criticism are offered as we work and she broadens her teaching with discussions of other artist techniques to encourage individual progress. Thank you for being a great and approachable teacher!”
