I am really honoured to know artist Joe Dowden. He is my first teacher when I came to the UK to study art in 2011. I love his watercolor art, especially about the light and reflection of the water is really creativity. I have to say that I really love his art lessons and thanks for his enthusiasm and friendliness. I wish I can have an opportunity to attend Joe Dowden's class in the future.”


“Tôi rất vinh dự được biết nghệ sĩ Joe Dowden. Ông là giáo viên đầu tiên khi tôi đến Vương quốc Anh để học về nghệ thuật vào năm 2011. Tôi yêu nghệ thuật màu nước của ông, đặc biệt là về ánh sáng và sự phản chiếu của nước một cách rất sáng tạo. Tôi phải nói rằng tôi thực sự rất thích các buổi học và cảm ơn về sự nhiệt tình cũng như thân thiện của ông. Tôi ước tôi có thể có một cơ hội để tham dự lớp học của hoạ sĩ Joe Wooden trong tương lai.”
