Great to do something creative, and Gabrielle gave clear instructions and support throughout the workshop. Excellent camera work so that participants could see examples clearly throughout session. Thoroughly enjoyed workshop and feel inspired to do more.

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. Gabriela facilitated the session brilliantly guiding everyone in the group throughout the various stages of the art making process. I have signed up for another class with Gabriela and am looking forward to taking part in many more of her classes. Louisa
