What students say:

"I absolutely love this course and the painting compositions! I've had lots of 'ohhhhs' and 'ahhhs' 😁👍 from friends and family. I loved this class!" Annette Rink

"You deconstruct complicated photographs into a jumble of abstract shapes then magically transform it into a gorgeous painting. I don't know how you do that! I don't have that creative vision I guess. Your videos and step-by-step directions are learner oriented and the best quality I have found " April Jackson

"I have become addicted to Birgit’s classes and am looking forward to the challenges that I know will be coming in this class. I am so thankful to have found Birgit’s classes. I love her style and the positive reinforcement she gives to all. This gives me the opportunity and motivation to keep painting!" Susan Cauddill

"I am a professor in leadership and change management myself and have an intensive job as dean of a business school. Patience and stillness are some of the skills I need to improve so this space with Birgit and the watercolors (that needs a lot of patience) are a life coaching course! Thanks so much, Birgit!" Camelia

"I am having the time of my life, and have improved my skills more rapidly than any other time over the past 25+ years on my own." Sue Warnock

"I am happy to be taking another course from you. Thank you for taking the time to teach us all." Jeanne Hall
