Student Testimonials

" 9.5/10. I really enjoyed the workshop. It was very comprehensive. Materials provided were of very good quality especially the customized paints which are very versatile. Your demos are very helpful and I found it inspiring that you can draw any clothing that we ask. 3 hours may be too short I think (coz I like to take my time when it comes to painting)"
- Laura Siew
"Indeed, I had really enjoyed the session. Just to let you know, I have been attending workshops and let's be honest, yours is the Best!!!! You are really helpful and you don't make students feel intimidated. I must say I'm also very lucky that the group was small and each and everyone of them is friendly and talented in their own way. Looking forward to learn more from you, Mandy. My heart is full. Thank you for today."
