"I had a very nice learning experience with Nicole for the last few months. She is very talented and versatile artist. I learned a lot of new techniques, media and styles of drawing from her. She makes learning very enjoyable and relaxing at her studio which is located in the most beautiful surroundings."
"It is the only time during the week I can really let my mind go, relax, and not feel judged"
"Thank you so much! Soren is not very confident or keen on drawing, but you made it super fun!!! Thank you so much for “feeling out your class” and adapting it to their temperament! It was super fun for Soren and now he’s excited to draw more! Thanks again!"
