Course testimonials:

  • said: Our teacher Nadia was excellent, one of the best teachers I've ever had. Lessons were instructive while fun, perfect for beginners.

  • said: I loved how attentive Elinor was to each student, and her passion for teaching painting! Would love to see her doing more painting courses in the future!

  • said: Gained the confidence to get started and keep going. I wish I’d Received a little more theory up front about how to work with oil paints, cleaning techniques, brush stroke technique etc. Overall, a good course

  • said: The course was enjoyable, but I would have liked a little more variety than still life as shown in your Video.

  • said: the instructor/teacher was very patient, encouraging and attentive at all times, which made the whole experience very enjoyable and relaxing
