Feedback from past students

“I enjoyed working in the small environment at Hawthorn Studio and especially the group dynamics engendered by Michelle’s subtle guidance. It is great to have resources available within the class. This enabled me to experiment and to build some material knowledge and confidence for later choices. The content was comprehensive within the time slot but also offering choices for individual subject or interest area.” – Barb, Jul-2019

“Michelle was very knowledgeable. It is great that an art course supplies art material. Paints and paper pads can be expensive, which them makes participating in a course expensive. Including materials in the course fee makes it an affordable course.” – Antonietta, Jul-2019
