Course testimonials:

  • said:5 stars

  • said:Our teacher Nadia is an excellent educator and an inspiration. She is extremely knowledgeable and taught us valuable techniques and really identified and understood the individual style of each of the class participants. Nadia took time with each of us to suggest colours or textures or finishes that we might like to use on our paintings.

  • said:The tutor was absolutely fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and patient. It really changed things for me in terms of how I feel about my creativity and how I can paint. I can't recommend it enough. She took us all on a journey starting with us having self doubt, to us creating some pretty impressive art. I would wholeheartedly recommend this course and I might be tempted to take it again!
