I recently took part in a ‘Drawing with Scissors: Create a Collage Inspired by Matisse’s Cut-outs’ workshop with Gabriela. The online class was thoroughly enjoyable and I learned new art skills also.

I have signed up for another class with Gabriela and am looking forward to taking part in many more of her classes. Louisa
