Below are some examples of the lovely artwork that students are creating during the Covid restrictions, as well as some of their reviews.
“Glyn’s weekly tutorials pass by astonishing quickly. They are an absorbing and passionate forty minutes where he shares his love and knowledge of various art works. Glyn brings the life and backgrounds of individual artists onto the window of their artwork. I begin to understand what influences the language of each artist and how and why they created their work. Glyn builds up the pictures through his layers of understanding and study and this has helped me to become more confident in experimenting with my own personal skills. In a world full of stimuli he manages to bring a focus to my work and this craft reflects his very special tutorial skills.” Isobel Davies
“Dive into Art and explore with Glyn Pooley: During this coronavirus period I have been able to continue painting and remained focussed through our online Monday evening Weekly Zoom meetings with Glyn Pooley .
Glyn has provided a personal insight into artists and their work through his extensive knowledge and experience. He has set the scene clearly in time and history, explored works of art through his slide presentations using Zoom , this has been delivered in a clear way that has inspired me to paint in the style of a variety of artists that I may not have looked at before . I would highly recommend him. “ Tina Simmons-Roe
Many people can look at a picture and say 'I really like/don't like it' but cant tell you why. Examining the styles and approaches of other artists in detail can give you an insight into what great art is, and incorporating these strategies in your own work can enhance your understanding and appreciation even more. Kyssie Moore
Glyns’ tutorials have been an absolute joy .A well known Barry artist in his own right ,he shares his extensive knowledge of art history and painting techniques in an easy gentle manner .I’ve particularly enjoyed the challenge of homework and his incisive critique when we share our work .He offers a varied course covering a wide range of subjects and styles.

Every week I look forward to my Zoom in with Glyn. With a new topic each week, Glyn demonstrates his knowledge and passion for the subject. Some weeks we study a famous artist [often with a Welsh connection]. Others, it’s an art theme, or a painting technique.
Glyn illustrates his talks with a selection of his favourite examples. These paintings are analysed and explained in full, it’s like walking through an art gallery with a talented guide. Our online masterclasses are fully interactive, we can ask Glyn questions at any time, where trivial and serious questions are treated equally! At lessons end, we are given ‘Glyn’s challenge’. This is our chance to paint, if we want to, in the weeks style or theme.
So this is us then, learning, developing and appreciating through emulation. We share our efforts, online, the following week. We get to see and discuss how each has tackled the challenge. Personally, I believe, we will look back at these sessions and marvel at how productive we have been. Difficult times but great art! Bill Rogers
