Hi, I throughly enjoyed the Watercolour Painting class on Sunday. Liana was bright and bubbly and was very eager to impart her knowledge to us. She explained lots of tips and tricks to get us started on our way to watercolour artists. Thank you Liana for a great afternoon and for giving me the basics to get started. Kate K

Olym Jul 2020


It was my first time doing this and I got invited by my sister with short notice, so I wasn't sure what to expect. In 2 hrs the teacher taught and utilized the time really well so we could learn some fundamental basics about watercolor and go home feeling "i can do this at home".

Liana was great! with a great energy & friendly approach liana was easy to talk to and with such a great foundation of watercolour knowledge was able to teach me things I didn't know about watercolour paints. Can't wait to return for my next class with Liana.
P.s her work with coffee was amazing

Stefani Tan Jul 2020


We learn a lot and the teacher was excellent and friendly. The Covid 19 restriction does make it more difficult to get the most out of it, given that we also have to watch our own distance. It also feel a bit rushed. The 3 artwork is crucial to explore the techniques and making the class worthwhile, but the 2hrs felt a bit too short. The galaxy theme is the best! The apple was a bit more difficult. The masterpiece ties them all back together and is a prize for pride. Brush/tool methods reminder i think was as important to revisit in the apple work.

Liana was great! Very insightful. Class was good, however hard environment to learn in with the Covid restrictions (hard to see demonstrations and techniques from a distance). Maybe a projector that could show us a close up would be helpful for this?

Was great though! Would love to attend an intermediate water colour class :)

Teache is knowledgeable and approachable.
I learnt a few new skills.
I'd like to do another beginners painting class.

Jennifer Brook Jul 2020


Friendly, warm, encouraging instruction. Two hours was enough time to have a good go. Would highly recommend Watercolour for Beginners!

Peter Moody Mar 2020


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

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.
