I wanted to expand my skills and understanding of acrylic painting and so joined Katrina’s evening classes. Katrina taught familiar subjects and gave me the confidence to try the more unfamiliar and on some summer evenings we even painted en plein air. The lessons were enjoyable, friendly and Katrina gave bags of encouragement and made everyone feel very welcome. My painting has definitely improved as a result of my time spent with Katrina and I would highly recommend people going to her lessons.
