" As I’m sure you might have gathered I enjoyed every part of the course.It was the exact information delivered clearly and energetically that left space for absorption and reception without being fluffy! I really personally like your presentation style and tone. You busted through some of the blocks in my head and have provided a framework to refer to and grow from. Thank you." - Sarah, Bristol
" The Advancing Art course was fantastic! A thorough but not overly long walk through of key areas to be thinking about to move forward with your art career, with brilliant tips delivered in an engaging and encouraging way. It was so valuable to have the points of view and opinions from someone such as yourself so active in the art world, with such valuable insight for us to help make our future experiences in the art world ourselves as positive and successful as possible. I loved the space to meet and talk and ask questions with like minded people, and the optional tasks/homework to do each week really helped with drive and moving forward our practice.
So much information to refer back to as and when needed in your career, and the chance to be a part of the Art & People community - awesome! I highly recommend." - Ellie, Bristol
" The Advancing Art course was everything I had hoped for and then some. I was worried I'd be too much of a newbie in making art, but somehow Claudia found a way to meet everyone where they were at, even with varying degrees of experience. I learned a lot about how the art industry works and what choices someone has starting out. There were countless little tips for what to look out for and what makes a really good impression with galleries and buyers. She was engaging, the slides were exceptionally well prepared and it was really easy to follow. The hour just flew past and I could've continued on. I didn't have the confidence to call myself an artist before the course, but within two weeks she instilled the idea that "what I do matters" and I am a lot more confident and claim an artist's identity because of it. Thanks, Claudia! "- Mirjam. Montana
