What Students have to say

We went to Mel for charcoal drawing lessons having ZERO experience in art and we couldn’t have been happier with the results.

Mel is a great teacher and her guidance helped us create drawings we were proud to hang on any wall.

Highly recommend her lessons!

Luke & Paula 2018

I always wanted to take art classes. Drawing was something I thought I am not capable of, abstract painting maybe, but certainly not drawing.

First thing Mel told me when I decided to give it a go was that
I will be surprised what I am capable of and after just 2 classes, I was surprised!

I enjoy every class as it is
amazing to be around creative people who encourage one another. It is a great place, great teacher. Highly recommended.

Mel has so much experience and love for art that she inspires me to grow whatever tiny amount of creativity I possess.

Mel
naturally connects with each student’s individual style and preference, then challenges us with helpful techniques and also understanding on the why and how.

Mel is the very best art teacher and such a lovely person too!

Lorraine 2018 - 2021

Art classes with Mel have been a wonderful distraction from my everyday life.

For 2 hours I focus on something just for fun and have achieved results that I would never have thought possible.

Mel pushes us outside of our comfort zone (and makes it ok to go outside the lines!).

Ophelia 2019 - 2021

I have been with Mel for 7 years and still find her classes inspiring.

Mel has extensive knowledge and experience in the full range of art mediums and her interpersonal skills are terrific.

She is very knowledgeable and her communication style is encouraging, confidence building and friendly.

Mel can bring out the sleeping artist from within !!

Thank you Mel!

Gael 2012 - 2021

A great relaxed atmosphere where you can learn so much about yourself and your abilities with pencil, charcoal, paint brush - whatever!

Mel is the best guide ever, Mel is amazing!

Thank you so much Mel.

Neyta 2012 -2020

I have been painting with Mel since 2013 and have been fortunate enough to try all different mediums.

When using oils, Mel has pushed me to try new things. I love coming to classes and seeing what I can create with her help. Most recently (2021) I have been playing with palette knives.
