Dear Madam, or Sir,

I would be most grateful if you could forward this email to an artist who lives in Summertown (Oxford) and might be interested in giving drawing lessons to our 9 year old child.

We come to Summertown to take piano lessons once a week at 4:00 p.m. for 30 minutes. We would like the drawing lesson to follow, or precede this.

Alternatively, an artist who may consider coming to our house to teach.

(Spaniel living in our arts room!)

Kind regards, Olivia Ada Symons
