From Our Students

I joined this group with low expectations, as I had no training in art (drawing or painting).

After three, six week sessions, I still cannot call myself an artist, however I have found a confidence I never thought I would have. I have learned so much under Patricia’s tuition. From colour mixing to producing a painting that a few weeks ago I would have thought impossible.

If you want to paint but think you can’t, get in touch with Patricia, she will help you unlock your artist potential.

As someone with no knowledge or experience of watercolour painting I tentatively joined Patrica’s art group through Zoom. She makes everyone feel at ease and her teaching background allows her to develop experienced and novice artists like myself. I enjoy the classes and the other participants a great deal and look forward to face to face workshops.
