“Renaissance holidays are just excellent!”

Renaissance holidays are just excellent. Every single claim made in the advertisement was fulfilled. Everything is provided; there are no hidden costs.

From my perspective the course design and structure is unique insofar as on the day one group of total strangers meet, we have supper together to break the ice.

We then meet together twice daily as a group to participate in sessions carefully constructed to promote personal development both in terms of creativity and spirituality.

This aspect I found well led by the course director who was very good at explaining complex strands and refreshingly open to challenge with also promoted understanding.

The tutors are excellent, professional, encouraging and ready to give time to every student. Respectful of where a person is with their art work and sensitive to developmental need. They combined constructive comment with bags of encouragement and advice all delivered with good humour. The light approach made it all good fun! The staff worked extremely hard to ensure that all of our needs were met.

The course suited my needs in terms of art content and encouraging self-confidence in terms of creativity.It also offers opportunities for self-reflection and future planning. Resulting from my all too short week at Renaissance I am now well away with my painting.

I guess the best comment of all is that as soon as I can I will book another course next year!
