"My daughter (who has a learning disability) & I have been attending art classes with Sarah for over 16 years.
With her expert guidance, knowledge & skills we have been able to produce wonderful and very varied artworks in many different media.
She allows us to develop & progress at our own pace & in our own way, encouraging us to be unique while being totally non-judgemental."
Sarah is an amazing art teacher. She combines the teaching of techniques with stimulating art projects and helps you develop your own path. Through our sessions, I have begun to see colour, tone, and composition in a strikingly different way, which enriches everyday life. It is a great blessing being taught by a true artist.
