My School



A few years ago I started this school out of my home. What began as a way to make a few extra bucks has become an exciting project that has taken on a life of its own. We started with 4 students and last term we had 20! This year we are offering new classes in book illustration (with my husband, Peter Mitchell), adult classes in oil painting and drawing and painting for life and our regular Saturday and after school classes for kids and teens. Classes are limited to 6 students and I have to say that every student who has come to the school, keeps coming back for more! Check out our new website and 09/10 schedule.

I picked up your postcard while I was hanging out Deal Coffee this weekend which led me to your web site this evening.

Congratulations for executing on such a great idea! The school looks like a great environment for learning as well as building community. I hope that I can participate in the Drawing and Painting From Life class hopefully in upcoming term 2 or term 3 as it looks perfect for someone like myself who is still relatively new to art and looking to develop new skills.

In the meantime I will be sure to pass on your info to all of my friends.

Cheers
