"I can't believe the art my daughter is creating alongside the other children in the class. So inspiring to watch this journey! My daughter is so enthusiastic about the class and says it is never long enough. An excellent range of mediums. It gives her so much pride and motivation to keep improving her artistic ability. Highly recommended"

Saya has been teaching art in one form or another for the past ten years: "I love how art asks us to take another look from different perspectives, and to ask questions. I think it's a reminder we all need from time to time, and a great source of inspiration for children."
