TESTIMONIALS

This was a Zen-like experience. We learnt not just like to paint but to see. We are looking forward to the next event. And the coffee and fruit had a nice touch.

Beautiful day painting in Provence. A lovely combination of painting and wine tasting with a fabulous picnic. Would definately recommend it again.

Une belle initiation à l'aquarelle sur les bords de la Siagne, avec une professeure bienveillante et très professionnelle sous la haulette d'Adela toujours disponible et attentive aux besoins de ses clientes. Merci infiniment pour cette parenthèse enchantée.

Another fabulous outing Adela!

Nicola did a superb job explaining Picasso's artwork - the paintings he did while living at the Chateau Grimaldi in 1940. I appreciate Picasso's genius ever more now. I loved the drawing/painting session with Nicola afterwards. I feel I have the tools to continue experimenting "Picasso style" on my own. Lunch at the Vieux Murs - sensational!

Thank you Adela

A wonderful, unforgettable day!

An insightful visit to the Picasso Museum with Nicola Art teacher as a guide. It really made such a difference having an artist as a guide. Then back to Nicola's for a drawing lesson - very inspiring. All this followed by a delicious and beautifully presented lunch. All in all a wonderful experience!

It has been fantastic day! You have beautifully planned the outing, Dominique was a laid back, professional, kind, engaging teacher. I could have spent the entire day painting! Lunch was fabulous at L'Amandier. I will be having sweet dreams about this extraordinary day.

Thank you so much Adela.
