Great class. Perfect length for a beginner to get a taste for drawing and water colour. Materials and location were great. Teacher was very calm and kind. It was easy to follow and quite a mindful activity.

Mariana is a very friendly teacher with soft spoken voice. She encouraged her students a lot on their artworks and provided useful tips when we were struggle. The studio is set up well with needed equipments and tools. I will definitely come back!

Marianna provided a wonderful introduction to watercolours and drawings in a relaxed lovely art space. I would highly recommend this class to anyone wishing to explore watercolours or be reintroduced to art as an adult.

Great class for a trepidatious beginner. Friendly learning environment where I managed to walk away having painted something that looked very much like what I’d intended to create.
