Read what other students say who have already started their watercolour journey
I love teaching watercolour painting, especially when you can see students making progress and gaining in confidence. If you're still wondering if classes at Tracey Bengeyfield Art are for you, why not see what some of my students say about the course.
All of the art work shown has been painted by the featured student. More examples of their beautiful work can be found on my Instagram page or on the student gallery.
"I joined Tracey's class, as an absolute beginner, after I retired from work - and am so pleased that I did. Tracey's friendly tuition has brought out in me a talent I was sure I didn't have! She's a wonderful teacher, issuing challenges and encouragement in equal measure - and I now have the confidence to send hand-painted greetings cards to my friends and family. I wish I'd met Tracey many years ago."
"I Love Tracey’s online watercolour class. We learn lots of techniques through a varied and imaginative supply of subjects. The videos and worksheets explain the techniques in a clear and detailed way."
"With your help I have achieved results that I wouldn’t have managed by myself. You are a brilliant teacher. Thank you"
"It was not until I discovered Tracey’s classes during “lockdown” that I found someone who is not only an artist, but a professional art teacher having the rare skills of conveying her craft with clarity and enthusiasm...Her accompanying resources and the detail within them are absolutely amazing and are available to the students for download afterwards. Tracey is a star in the Watercolour world. You need search no further."
"I’ve been doing Tracey’s online classes since March and would highly recommend them. The very detailed work sheet, accompanied by Tracey’s demo videos are so easy to follow. Tracey provides a great variety of subjects from flowers to buildings which develop different techniques."
I cannot speak too highly of how Tracey manages to bring out the ‘Artist’ in me! Tracey is an exceptional teacher who inspires us all to produce the best work and reach our full potential. The learning techniques of worksheets and videos are informative, instructive and easy to use. A vast array of themes are covered which stimulates the student to take on new challenges which means you never become bored- classes are fun and anyone joining a class will not be disappointed. Joining Tracey’s class has enabled me to grow with confidence in my painting ability – your Artistic ‘flare’ will be nurtured during the course work and you will find the lessons stimulating, thought provoking and enjoyable!
"As a beginner to watercolours, I have learnt different methods and been inspired to experiment with my own ideas.
Her videos are presented in a fun way and it is great to watch her paint and see each beautiful creation emerge.
The notes to back up her videos are a help when mixing colours and useful to refer back to."
"I love these classes, and my husband loves the ‘beautiful paintings’ I have successfully achieved with Tracey’s classes and tuition."
"I wasn’t sure how art classes would work without face to face teaching but I have really enjoyed continuing to learn different techniques with Tracey using her resources on line. Tracey always provides clear and detailed worksheets backed up with clear videos which I have found very easy to follow. I always enjoy her subject choices which I constantly amaze myself with the finished product. She is a great teacher!"
"I think the online courses are very good they are flexible in that we can paint at any time of the day"
"Tracey offers a thorough set of learning tools with her classes. I love her worksheets as they provide step by step guidance on all stages of creating a watercolour, including techniques and colour choice. I particularly like her advice on mixing your own colours as not all pallets offer the same colour selection. Her videos are also useful to actually see the demonstration live. I thoroughly recommend Tracey's art courses as she is an excellent teacher."
"The notes prepared by Tracey are really quite amazing and lead me step by step through the process of creating a masterpiece! These include the colour mixing, the application techniques and the execution of the final painting. The range of subjects we paint are very varied and cover different aspects of the use of watercolours... the on-line classes have been a real life saver during lock down as they have given me a chance to learn new skills and a challenge at a time when other activities were not possible."
"A qualified art teacher, Tracey has many years of experience which really shows in the way she builds her courses. Each project introduces me to a new watercolour technique ensuring that I never stop learning. The online classes have been great during lockdown...Tracey is an exceptionally gifted teacher and I highly recommend her classes."
"Each week I look forward in anticipation to Tracey’s online art lesson, eagerly opening the link to find out the theme for the next two weeks. Tracey’s warmth and humour shine out in the video clips, as she teaches us new skills and provides advice on mixing colours. The worksheets are comprehensive, including photos and step by step instructions on how to complete your painting. I thoroughly recommend Tracey’s art courses as they are outstanding and have been a highlight of my week."
"Watercolour Painting with Tracey is Inspirational, challenging, rewarding and a lot of fun...quality video demonstrations, worksheets and themes are covered in full. Tracey is a great artist and fun and encourages us to produce some amazing paintings using many different techniques."
“This has to be the next best thing to classes or personal tuition with an experienced teacher and artist. Well thought out lessons, detailed worksheets, photo resources and explanatory videos have made this a great (and fun!) way to learn and develop my watercolour skills. Highly recommended.”
"The videos and worksheets are excellent and so detailed, allowing me as a beginner to work at my own pace, and give me confidence that I can learn to draw and paint while enjoying the experience...Thank you Tracey !!"
