Testimonials

THANK You very much,  ANGEL FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND YOUR HUMOR. I ARRIVED IN YOUR COURSE WITH NO CONCEPT ONLY A DREAM OF WISHING TO PAINT ON MY RETIREMENT.  I THANK YOU FOR ALL THE CONFIDENCE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME BECAUSE THANKS TO YOU I REALIZED MY DREAM. Savoir Monik

Excellent teacher, very attentive, mastering all the techniques of her art, Angel transmits her passion to her students with a lot of energy, talent, patience, and a note of humour.

I learned a lot during the two courses that I was able to follow with her, and really enjoyed working with the talented artists who are her students. Thank you Angel and probably see you very soon. Randa P

 

Very interesting courses with good concepts and tips to arrive at a very satisfactory end product. After being inactive for a long time, Angel knew how to instill in me the taste, the interest and the confidence in me to take up new creative challenges. Her workshop is also a place of exchange, inspiration and renewal, where there is a beautiful energy. I am very satisfied and happy to have joined this painting school and I highly recommend it. My goal of being able to integrate this creative activity into my everyday life has been achieved. Thank Angel Cécile B

 

Angel is a very good painting teacher. She is patient, teaches well and is particularly good at advising you on mixing colors. Take a class with her, you won't regret it!
Nicole F

Angel is aptly named: she is an angel to guide us in our development in painting and she has wings because she can fly over several styles and media. There are no obstacles to her flexibility to adapt to our needs as painters, from beginners to experts. The lessons are relaxed and the atmosphere is stimulating and warm. Angel knows how to put us at ease and give us confidence in our abilities with a good dose of humor.
I have known Angel for over ten years and I always enjoy coming back after temporary absences. I have made several paintings over the years and I am currently interested in semi-abstract painting and the use of spatulas. At the dawn of my retirement, it is a nourishing and enriching activity where the exchange with other painters is done with pleasure and respect.
THANK YOU Angel.
Lise B.
