I write as the secretary of the All Day Art Club, of which Richard has been the tutor since November 2015. During his time with us he has become the king-pin around which the club revolves. During any one session he circulates the group making helpful comments to individuals, which works well with all the members. We also appreciate the fact that if Richard sees something as he goes round that he feels would benefit from a short demo on that point or technique then those members who are interested can gather round and listen to what he has to say. He is particularly good at inspiring us with new ideas and every term he sets us a challenge culminating in a little exhibition of our pictures on which he makes helpful comments. To his credit non-members have also been making comments to the effect that our work has become more imaginative since he has been our tutor.
I have no hesitation in recommending him for the post of tutor with your organisation.
