"Working with Trevor is a dream. His enthusiasm and
energy is infectious, his classes interesting and informative. One participant added that
it was thoroughly satisfying to escape from the rigours of an architectural practice and
enjoy the freedom of drawing by hand. I have no hesitation in recommending Trevor and team
to any forward thinking organization who values its staff."

"Thank you for some very enjoyable Thursday evenings. Some people
doing the course said they found it restful. I thought it was as restful as

"I thought the classes really did improve my drawing skills and made me
more confident about drawing. I learnt a lot about different drawing
techniques, different ways of representing what you see in front of you or
what is in your mind."

"I have to say I really enjoyed the classes - Trevor was a perfect teacher -
I think he was able to bring out the artist in most of us. I know a lot of
people were apprehensive at first. He was especially good at
encouraging our individual style - reinforcing it with technique and tips -
rather than imposing one on us. I'd definitely like to do more classes. it's
good to develop the drawing skills away from the pressure of
architecture related subjects."

"The Drawing At Work life-drawing classes at RRP have been a real
success. Everyone attends religiously - senior directors, model makers,
our chef and support staff alike. Classes are typically 14 people - the
next 10 wk course is oversubscribed with 22 people per class"
Robert Torday Head of Communications Richard Rogers Partnership
"As an architect, the drawing I do for work is generally of a basic
standard required to communicate an approach or solution to a problem.
It is a great pleasure to draw in a recreational environment, released
from the usual pressures of objectivity and haste."

"Working in a creative business like advertising means treading a fine line
between opinion and fact, imagination and reality. As an advertising
planner, I am required to listen to consumers in focus groups to hear
what they think and feel, and to put aside my personal views. Drawing is
a fantastic discipline for me, because it trains the mind to see what is
really there, not what we think 'must be there'. Basically, it's a great
antidote to lazy thinking."
Roisin Robothan-Jones Senior Planner W.C.R.S. Advertising Agency
"I personally very much enjoyed the drawing sessions. It was a
detachment from everyday life, let alone practising architecture. I found it
incredibly rewarding. What you talk about in the sessions I seem to have
compared with architecture and design - space, depth, volume, void,
negative and positive spaces, etc. While being shown that a human
figure can be perceived as such, it made me realise that similar
principles applied in design."
