The teacher did an amazing job leading the class and getting everyone to understand a bit of her background.
I would have personally liked the room to be set in a way that would have encouraged more dynamic interaction. Maybe having people standing and all facing towards the core of the class would have made it more immersive.

I have just had the perfect afternoon of inspiration and education with Kabushak and her Dot Art class! Her style and method of teaching is very relaxing and calm while imparting a wide depth of indigenous culture and knowledge. And I produced a pirce of artwork too. Totally worth the $ and will also be giving this experience as a gift! Thank you Kabushka

Kabushka has a lovely big smile that captures her cheerful nature. She gave clear instructions, explaining Aboriginal art as she did so. The lesson was well paced and the materials appropriate. She moved around the group giving personal guidance as needed. I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and would recommend it to others.

Shafar Sulaiman May 2022

Was a wonderful experience. Kabushka was warm and friendly and we got to experience a taste of their culture as well. As for the class, it was an eye opener into a native form of art. Dot art was simply stunning and they provided all the materials and even gave us a cool memorabilia after the class. Would recommend Dot Art Circle to anyone looking for a fun, creative and knowledgeable experience.
