Here is what a student said in a Yelp review.
What a great studio!! From my first class with Susan, I immediately felt comfortable and more confident. This is a very friendly, warm and relaxed environment where you can have one on one support as needed by Susan and her assistants, or be free to work on your own. The classes are small so there is no need to worry about not getting enough attention. Each student goes at there own pace, week by week, until they've finished what i witnessed as masterpieces. She plays lovely relaxing music and offers tea & coffee & refreshments. This really is the best 'art experience.'
The classes are not a structured lesson, although plenty of support and knowledge is given as you need. Susan lets you learn organically, guiding you and teaching you skills without pushing her own style onto you. She really takes the time to work with each individual student to understand what it is they like to paint and starts to help them form a style of there own.
