Testimonials from adults classes/workshops
"I have learnt a lot from Ginette about Watercolour,pen and ink . Her style of teaching is so vibrant and uplifting. She has clear instructions and takes us to higher levels in our skills. I have more confidence to keep going further in my art". - Janice
"In one word it was brilliant. The sheer energy that Ginette brings to her teaching is infectious and makes everything seem possible. Her style to demystify even the most complex of skills is an incredible talent that only comes with someone who is totally comfortable with their profession. We all left with a watercolour we could be proud of achieving in such a short time. The same picture, but very different as she encouraged us to take risks and just "have a go"".- Ann
"Loved learning the techniques new to me. Quickness encouraged made me to focus on the basic outlines first then the main subject. Ginette guided me to where the faint washes should be, then to highlight. Chinese brushes are a revelation! Thank you Ginette for your enjoyable, sociable classes." - Sally
