"Peronel's approach is warm, insightful and inspirational. She restored my daughter's confidence and joy in her creative abilities after they had been crushed by poor teaching. Peronel's gentle guidance and encouragement helped Jess to shift her perspective and tap into her innate originality. Instead of giving up Art altogether, she is on track to attain her A grade - and has now chosen to take Fine Art to A level."
Parent, EC 2013 (Postscript- Jess went on to study Art at University)
