Really appreciated the relaxed and informal environment with carefully paced tuition & individual attention – speed of the process – it is great to produce more than one completed piece. Value for money: very generous with advice, assistance, tips, sharing knowledge, number of canvases available plus morning tea. Did you feel comfortable? Very, a non-judgmental atmosphere which as a beginner was just great! I will definitely be recommending this to my friends. – Jill  

A friendly tranquil environment. Jackie has a lovely calm teaching technique and by the time you leave a class you feel uplifted and inspired to do more. I learnt heaps about working with colour and how to get texture into our work in various ways that is very easy for us beginners to understand. I am leaving with a piece of art that I am proud to display on my wall or even give as a gift plus canvases to do more. I would recommend this workshop to anyone. – Renee  

Jackie’s patient tutoring without taking over, encouragement to do your own individual piece made this enjoyable. Old memories urged up. Was wonderful to work in such a relaxed atmosphere. Definitely good value for money and not only would I recommend the workshop but discussed Jackie doing a one day tutoring event. – Kez (established artist and writer)  

I enjoyed the freedom to explore and create with colour and texture. Easy relaxed atmosphere, music was cool too. Loved looked at all the finished works around the studio. I learnt patience through the process and found the workshop content easy to follow. I felt comfortable to explore and view all works. P.S. Love that I have 5 works to take home, love it love it love it! – Kirsten
