Participant Testimonials

Vaishnavi Rajagopal

"I attended this class with my 5 year old. It was a lot of fun - both of us not only enjoyed the lesson immensely, we also learnt a lot about painting styles, brush strokes to achieve various effects etc.
Deepa is very patient with her students. She takes time to review everyone's work and helps us perfect the techniques. Even if you have never painted before, you come out of her class feeling like an expert!
I hope to continue these classes with her for months to come. Highly recommend it. Whether you are looking to take a break from your routine or whether you are looking to acquire a new skill and hobby this class will help you get there."
