Course testimonials:

  • Tanya fostered the perfect balance of instruction and freedom to experiment. Each lesson was different and well prepared challenging students to think outside the box. I highly recommend this course and Tannya as a tutor.
  • We were encouraged to challenge ourselves, shown new ways of 'seeing' a subject and new ways to draw. Brought out the experimental artist in me. Exciting!
