"I'm so thankful you put this list together for us. It is really nice to have guidance on buying good supplies that won't break the bank to get started. I really enjoyed the workshop last night. It was great to be introduced to watercolours, but more than that it was wonderful to be in a room of lovely people and... painting is SO relaxing! It totally took my mind of work. Thanks for offering your continued help. I'll be sure to share a photo of a future painting!" - Sandra, April 2018
