"I really enjoyed the experience & felt that i was connecting knowledge to all those museum visits and beautiful art that i always enjoyed seeing in art galleries. I will surely come back again."
AE+ Student, Rose Johnson
"I thoroughly enjoyed both courses and they were exactly what I was looking for in an Art History course. In the first course I was very impressed with the depth of Zoltan’s knowledge. I loved to hear the stories about what was happening in the world at the time and how that affected the art styles.
I loved that the courses were hosted in galleries. It made the course feel more authentic. And I always love discovering new places.
The practical exercises were great: they made us realise that even if an art style looks simple it is actually quite difficult to execute. It was also a way to reinvigorate everyone after they had been sitting down too long.
The group size was perfect. I definitely look forward to staying in touch with Art Experts alumni and continuing our journey into the world of art together.
I think you/Art Experts are doing a fantastic job. I would certainly recommend your courses to anyone interested in learning more about art."

"I thank you for organizing such a course. After 12 years in Dubai I felt so happy to attend the course. I have enjoyed any minute of it."
Dr. Daniel Pryde-Jarman, Lecturer: Introduction to Art and Design, Dubai, November 2015
“Thanks to you for all of your hard work with organizing all of the
arrangements and the schedule. This made for a very smooth experience for me, enabling me to focus on the content of the classes, and for the students too, who I’m sure felt reassured by the professional look and feel of all of the sessions and supporting material provided to them.
It seems clear that there is a growing market for art education programs such as Art Experts +, and the majority of all of the students I spoke to, across all of the classes, said that they would like to enroll on future courses and would recommend them to friends, family, and colleagues. These responses seemed genuine and reflect really well on the programmes you have developed from scratch, especially considering how these were the
Having the Abu Dhabi art fair visit as part of the programme was a really beneficial addition, and the students seemed to gain much from being able to move around with their peers and engage in discussion.
Thanks again for inviting me over for the Art Experts programme - I had a really fantastic time.”

“I want to thank you for the amazing experience--everything has been fantastic. I was so impressed with your level of professionalism, enthusiasm, and determination - very inspiring! I was particularly impressed with the amount of care you put into everything, from the managing of bookings and logistics to the warm and friendly presence throughout.
I was overall very impressed with everything you did and how you did it-you should be really proud of yourselves and very hopeful for a bright future.
I hope to be able to contribute to future courses and to see you both again soon.”

“I hope we will have the opportunity to continue our collaboration for future courses. I think you’re doing a very good job and with your courses, rising the awareness of art education in Dubai. I understand that It could take time, but I believe in your project. It is something new, and clearly there is a gap in art education in the market in Dubai and you’re filling that niche.”
