Course testimonials:

  • I enjoyed excellent guidance from Robyn on tackling water and 'things' underneath the water. We painted sand and how to produce reasonably authentic footprints in the the sand as well as reflections in oils without the use of solvents. It was a relaxed three-day workshop tutored by Robyn Collier with plenty of snacks, cheese and biscuits etc provided by Yasmin. Thank you.
  • I enjoyed meeting Robyn in person as I have admired her work for many years and this was my first opportunity to actually enrol in a class with her (as I cannot travel very far these days due my health) - so I was excited to be learning about some of her techniques with her. I had never painted in Oils before so felt she was the right person to learn from to start with. I found her both professional, supportive and enjoyed her energy. I liked the way she did go around to everyone checking on their work and being able to suggest adjustments/improvements where necessary. It was nice meeting both you Marcel and Yasmin. Thank you Yasmin for your support it was much appreciated. I look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future. Norma S from Buderim
  • I was impressed by the care and attention each individual received from Robyn. In my case she helped me a great deal and I was very happy with the progress I made over the three days. I was very pleased with the finished seascape. Greg S from Hendra
