My name is Suruchi, and I am a self-taught artist. Art and painting have always been my passion. I always believe that creativity comes from within. As a member of the Parramatta art society, I constantly put an effort to keep myself updated.

I love to explore different techniques in painting and create unique artwork. I believe that one should impart their knowledge and skills to others to help them to fulfill their passion in the related field.
I have been conducting Art and Painting workshops in Singapore and Sydney. I have also exhibited and sold my artwork at different exhibitions at various locations, and I also work on customized orders as per the client’s needs.

I love to conduct art workshops in a friendly and interactive way giving personal attention to each participant so that they feel relaxed and enjoy what they do. I also prefer to give space to my students to freely use their imagination and creativity to create a unique art piece.
I love to work with kids in a fun-loving environment using simple and easy art, craft, and painting techniques.

I believe nowadays art plays an equally important role in the education of kids. Apart from only arts, art education imparts various skills and helps children to learn and develop important characteristics that they will need as adults in the future. I believe that art inculcates creativity, self-expression, problem-solving, decision making, perseverance, focus, collaboration, dedication, and feedback (to name a few) in kids.

So, I feel that art education should be made as an important part of the education system in schools as well. We as art educators and facilitators, we should put our combined efforts to spread art to society and make it approachable and affordable to children or any art lovers.

Sonia was very friendly and catered to our beginner status. She tailored the session to our needs and was very caring and funny. My friend and I had a great time and felt very supported the whole time.
All materials were provided and we walked away with an amazing artwork to keep for life. I would recommend this workshop for anyone.

Our teacher Suruchi was fantatic.

She had provided all the materials, was able to guide us nicely through some different techniques and was a delight to deal with prior to the class and during.

It's great value for money and i would definitely recommend others to sit one of her painting classes, she is very accomdating and friendly, plus you walk away with your own painting on a framed canvas.

The experience was alot of fun and educational, i am now going to purchase a gift for my Mum for Mother's day to see Suruchi for her awesome painting class.

Sonia was very patient and informative with my cousins and I who are beginners in acrylic painting. We love how passionate and creative Sonia is! We had a very enjoyable and peaceful time whilst painting the Eiffel Tower. I definitely recommend lessons with Sonia and will be doing it again in the near future.

Thankyou Sonia!
