This was a very special class. Silka was very warm and friendly and very passionate about art. She not only taught us skills so that we left the class with our own completed paintings, but also with a positive sense of achievement as Silka was extremely encouraging. We got individual attention and guidance as we worked on our art. I had never engaged in Chinese painting before and the tools and techniques had me realise what a very special art this is - it was very mindful work that made me feel like I'd engaged in a beautiful eastern tradition.

I spent 3 hours of peacefulness, learning about techniques, breathing, strokes, terminology all with a glass of Jasmin green tea.
Silka was very patient and encouraging. She had a little powerpoint presentation which she used to support her explanations and show some existing paintings.
I learned a lot and I now have enough information to start practicing trees and rocks in landscapes. A very satisfying afternoon.
