What students say

5 STARS Georgie was a terrific teacher, demonstrating clearly methods of painting. It was amazing to see how the colours blended in this medium. The venue was clean, bright and welcoming, with lots of helpers to change the water and offer suggestions. The materials provided were of great quality, and it was lovely to take home a framed piece of work. This workshop is well worth the price. -Anne-

5 STARS Absolutely loved this class from teachers to fellow artists to venue and equipment. -Lynne-
