Thrive Art Watercolour Class Buildings Student Work

"Thank you, Deanna, for creating such a fun, safe and encouraging space in which to learn.  Every class has been so well-structured and informative, with lots of individual hints and tips as we worked.  I was nervous about trying something new but needn't have worried. Your kindness and encouragement when my inner critic kept piping up has made a huge difference to my approach to trying new things.  Roll on the next course!"

"For a one-hour workshop on how to make the best use of my Smartphone's camera, I don't think this could have been better.  Deanna is a warm, supportive teacher with oceans of knowledge.  I'd certainly recommend this workshop to friends."

"Thoroughly enjoyed Deanna's recent watercolour course.  Lovely small, attentive group. Deanna is a thoughtful and enthusiastic tutor and has got me back up and running with my paint brushes.  I'm going to sign up for another in the New Year. Best wishes to all."
