What other students say about Susie...

Susie taught the class enthusiastically with a great sense of humour and plenty of hands on feedback and encouragement. I had lots of fun too and she helped me let go of some of my apprehensions about watercolour application with her individual approach. It was the best art workshop I have ever attended and I was thrilled with what I accomplished that day!

Course testimonials:

  • Really enjoyed Susie's class and she's a great teacher - extremely knowledgeable, helpful, fun and made everyone feel at ease. Learnt more about mixing paint colours in one day than at any time previously. The other students in the class were great and everyone was there to learn something new and just enjoy the experience. Would have no hesitation in enrolling on any of Susie's other classes.
  • The teachers style of teaching and her construction of the activities involved in the delivery.
  • Susie is a fantastic teacher, enthusiastically explaining little tips and tricks that help open up the world of watercolours for even the most nervous of beginners like myself. It’s amazing what she (patiently!) encourages you to achieve by the end of the day and you certainly leave on a high! We also appreciated the excellent air- conditioning on a humid Sydney day - the facilities are excellent. As a bonus, parking in nearby streets was free and plentiful which made the whole experience very easy.
