    Feedback from previous students

    “Fantastic. It was aimed at the right level for someone with no experience of painting since high school. Michelle went through it in enough detail and demonstrated it so I felt confident to paint from week 1.  I was able to paint something that helped me feel confident to explore and do more. It’s a great feeling to finish a painting after one lesson.” Phyllis, 2021

    “Michelle is a welcoming, knowledgeable instructor. Highly recommend her. She shared her expertise and skills freely and was genuinely interested in supporting every ones’ needs and different painting skills.” Lydia, March 2021
