Great class, well adapted to social distancing requirements. Shame the projector/camera didn't work consistently but the teacher adapted well.

Christine Tran • Mar 2020


We practiced painting 3 watercolour pieces- galaxy, leaf and our own design from an inspiration photo we like using the techniques taught to us. My favorite technique was the lifting and just learning the brush stokes and colours. The time went by very quick- had fun. The Screen used in class was very helpful and modern use of technology in the art space to help magnify what the teacher demonstrated instead of us crowding around her to see her.

Laura Keays • Feb 2020


Fabulous teacher, really enjoyed it! Only feedback would be to have a few more palettes as we were sharing with the girl next to us and was a bit tricky. Nice and relaxed and easy for a beginner like me

Angela Mikac • Feb 2020


Lots of fun! Liana was a great teacher! The class gave me motivation to put my paints at home to use!

Robert Shelton • Jan 2020


Liana was a great teacher and structured the class to have a really good balance between introducing skills, practicing them and free play.

Declan Hovenden • Jan 2020


Teacher was knowledgeable and very capable of expressing complex and difficult tasks simply and coherently. The supplies were perfect for a beginners introductory workshop and the environment of the class was lively and fun. Definitely not taken too seriously. Overall, a great experience and is definitely something I'd recommend.

Paige Cottell • Jan 2020


Really enjoyed the class. Wasn't slow but was easy to follow. Particularly enjoyed painting our own ideas at the end of the class.

Danielle Inwood • Dec 2019


Great instruction and modifying tasks to suit what we wanted to do! Look forward to next time.

Melissa Janson • Dec 2019


We learnt helpful watercolour tips from the teacher. She was very engaging and gave great examples. We painted a Christmas card and we used our learnt skills to create a artwork. Very helpful and enjoyable class.
