" I have been a student of Peter Barker for five years. I chose Peter because I wanted to learn how to PAINT. I wanted to learn how to paint like a Renaissance artist. Apart from Peter being a Master Painter himself, he has the skills to pass that knowledge on to his students in a gentle, insightful, encouraging, professional manner, whether you are a beginner, have been painting for years and what ever you choose as your subject matter".
