Hello! We are Tere and Colin, also known by our friends as #Team TC! We are both artists, huge foodies and city lovers with a real passion for sharing experiences with students of all skill levels!

We are Londoners and love our city and where we live, which is on a cute houseboat in a fantastic, friendly and creative East London community. Colin is a full-time artist and shows his art regularly in London and at international art fairs while Tere studied art at the renowned Goldsmiths College and then worked for over 14 years in contemporary art galleries and design studios in London.

We are very sociable and love getting to know new people through hosting dinner parties and get-togethers. We regularly visit art galleries, music concerts, cinema and basically anything fun and cultural.

We really enjoyed our art experience with Tere and Colin. Both Tere and Colin were really friendly and made us feel comfortable in their charming studio straight away. We really enjoyed seeing some of Colin’s work and trying out some of the techniques for ourselves. It was great to be able to create and take away a couple of our own artworks from the session. Thank you for a great experience!

I had a great time at the abstract art class with Tere and Colin. As a complete novice to all things art, Tere was lovely company and Colin was a great teacher. Both of their creative input helped my piece of art become something I was really happy with. I would definitely recommend for a fun and different activity in London.

Tere & Colin were friendly, fantastic teachers with tonnes of experience! All materials were provided and the space was great. I produced a piece using acrylics and dragging technique under Colin's guidance. They were warm and encouraging of my imagination which was greatly appreciated. I'm going back to learn more and highly recommend this session!

Tere and Colin shared their enthusiasm for art and life with what felt like genuine generosity and warmth. We felt really looked after all round, with personal support and attention to detail with what we were making, - it felt they really cared! and an eye always to our comfort and wellbeing. The studio space is intriguing and charismatic, materials and techniques are interesting, fun and I really enjoyed the surprise they offer! It was a total pleasure and very memorable! Thank you Tere and Colin!
