Parent, Uqbah

You’ve all been an absolute rock of support and a spark of colour in what would have been a very grey lockdown. You have given S… hope and a way to express herself, despite fighting countless challenges and setbacks for your organisation. You never lost your purpose through it all, and you never let us feel any worry or uncertainty in these strange times – you just kept on consistently helping us to realise our potential and discover the beauty of art no matter what was happening in the world.

I have really appreciated your enthusiasm and cheerfulness in our classes and keeping us all going during lockdown by switching to online teaching.  It has kept our group motivated and has given us something to look forward to each week. 


“Absolutely blown away by the artwork my daughter has produced with your encouragement. She loves coming to Art Club which is now one of the highlights of her week” Parent.

Parent, Vanessa

S….. has been coming since it began. She enjoys all she does and learnt lots of new skills.

She also practices these skills at home.

Parent, Beverley

Thank you so much for this class! F…… and D…. really enjoyed it and were thoroughly engaged throughout. You have such a lovely tone of teaching and your warmth and encouragement, as well as teaching drawing skills wonderfully, is what made this class stand out from other art classes we have done. So, thank you again, we will keep a lookout for other classes of interest to the children! Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

I like the Art Club because everybody is kind to me and I learn stuff a lot.

Student, Julie

I think your format on line is great, and is working really well.

I’ve been trying to apply the things we are learning to a portrait I’m working on for my daughter. Lots of blue and orange as it happens. Its helped me enormously because of his colouring (bay) black mane and tail, brown/chestnut body.

My daughter N…… has grown in confidence since she has started attending the art club at Art at the Heart. She was very shy to start with but Mukesh and his family put her at ease and have helped her to develop her techniques in drawing, painting and sculpture work. N…… has really enjoyed the projects and working together with other children to create large pieces of art, which even brought tears to my eyes when they were displayed. I look forward to the future work that N…… and her group create together and the improvements in her techniques that come from attending such a lovely art club.

Parent and Student, Emily and R….

R…. has just done your magical drawing workshop on zoom and loved it, his feedback is that it was the best drawing workshop he has ever done, and he is still shading and adding tone to his drawing now! So impressed by your use of terms like tone, and the wonderful and gentle way you have of encouraging the kids to look and draw in different ways. Thank you so much, we’ll be doing more of your workshops! Emily and R…..
