SUMMER-WORKSHOP STUDENT COMMENTS

 

Mr. Angel has a clear, structured way of teaching which gives one the confidence to advance. He is very generous with his wealth of knowledge and experience. The students that the Academy attracts are varied and interesting, making the overall experience a very positive one.

The workshop was wonderful. Michael John Angel’s clear cut and enthusiastic teaching is certainly an inspiration and I thank him most sincerely for sharing his knowledge.

Lesley Christiansen, England

 


Thank you so much for a really tremendous workshop. John Angel’s knowledge, understanding and generosity are a privilege to experience. I feel that I have been immensely fortunate in finding the Angel Academy and being able to put myself in the beam of your attention. I did mention Mr. Angel’s generosity as a teacher, didn’t I? I would hate to leave out the unstinting attention and focused gaze he gave to each of us every time he came to give assistance or to see how we were understanding his rich and wonderfully informative instruction.
Marilyn Bailey, England

 


Thanks again for the terrific workshop. I really enjoyed it and feel I learned a lot. I appreciated the introductory slide show, the structure of the class with the sequential “skill building” exercises and Mr. Angel’s helpful comments. I also appreciated his warmth and sense of humor. I think John creates a fun, supportive environment for his classes to learn in. It is obviously a very intense experience for the class members, but he makes it entertaining and fun as well.

In the few weeks that I had at the Academy with Mr. Angel, I gained what I consider to be a lifetime of experience. I can use the methods I learned in class, and apply them at home, continuing my studies as a painter. In fact, I was so impressed by the workshop that I have decided to join the full program!
Justine Highsmith

 


I spoke to {James} on Sunday and he is so enthusiastic about your course, saying he had learnt more about techniques in 1 week than he had learnt at University in 2+ years.
Sheila Page

 


It was such a wonderful experience for me and I sincerely want to thank you. I loved your style, your approachability, your talent, your eye and your smile – everything really!!
Lisa Schuster

 


Had a good time. You can take it from me that your workshop was a grand success. We took a vote.
