"My daughter has been attending Emma’s art workshops for the last two years, and absolutely loves them! It's not hard to see why, when the kids are in a warm, calm, friendly, creative environment using different mediums to make all kinds of artistic masterpieces.
Emma is a fantastic teacher, and this is evident in the resultant artwork that comes home from her classes. We thank you Emma for helping our daughter develop her artistic flair – she just loves coming along each week.”
