    This was my third session with Ella. As a complete novice water colour painter I was thrilled with my feathers (first workshop) and even impressed my son (has fine art degree) with my hare (second workshop) and today added a dramatic owl and gorgeous puffin to my portfolio! Ella has a real knack for teaching and demonstrating step by step skills and techniques. Thoroughly recommend this course to boost your confidence as an artist and as a relaxing and fun day.

    My third drawing workshop with Ella – more amazing results today – as a novice ‘artist’ I am over the moon! I’m now booked into her summer school. I can’t wait!
