Testimonials from adults classes/workshops

"Ginette's watercolour classes are always well planned with a variety of new skills to learn. The classes are very busy and not a minute is wasted. I have learned so much from Ginette, I have attempted some topics I would never try on my own.  I really like the honest feedback she gives about my watercolour painting, so that I can improve my skills. I would highly recommend Ginette's classes. " - Pamela

 

" I am really enjoying your classes. I find your demonstrations are easy to follow. I like the way that we are using a limited palette in some sessions and learning how to mix colours. When you said to start with pen in today’s lesson I did take a deep breath but it was much easier than I thought. Your critique is helpful.Thank you so much for all your help and encouragement."  - Justine

"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
