A lovely, relaxed and positive way to learn
Hi Kirsten, thanks for sharing your experience and passion for painting with us, we all thoroughly enjoyed your workshop and are keen to keep working on our pieces. It was a lovely relaxed and positive way to learn. Thanks also for sharing your photo, a lovely reminder of a special day with my nieces! Warm regards, Nicol
A welcoming atmosphere for learning
I have completed two oil painting courses with Kirsten and both have been inspiring. Kirsten is a generous teacher sharing her knowledge and skills and creating a welcoming atmosphere for learning. Loved the classes!!
I will definitely be doing more of her classes
Kirsten is a fantastic knowledgeable art teacher! I recently did a 2 hour acrylic art class with a group of friends and it was a lovely relaxing experience. Kirsten gives great advice and direction and I will definitely be doing more of her classes.
Kirsten is incredibly talented and so lovely. She has been working 1:1 with my daughter for several months now and done such an amazing job.
