Why choose Art at the Heart CIC
Classes are run by qualified artist educators Kamaljit and Mukesh; both have 25+ years of teaching experience and recognised for their highly personalised support for individuals. Don’t just take our word for it, see what our students say.
What our students say:
“My daughter bought me a Christmas gift of 5 art lessons with Art at the Heart at the start of a difficult year. From the start I have looked forward to my weekly classes and after a busy work-day, the time has been such a great way to relax, focus and clear my mind of everything other than the task in hand. Mukesh has been a patient, enthusiastic and skilful teacher guiding and encouraging me to make progress. The past 3 months have been a further challenge (COVID 19) but Mukesh and Kamaljit have continued to encourage and stimulate all of us students in the most imaginative ways…” Student Sarah
“I was lucky to become one of Kamaljit’s students 10 years ago. Kamaljit is an inspirational teacher, always encouraging and guiding students to develop their individual creativity in different media and to appreciate artists relevant to their work.” Student Julie
