Carmen is always ready to teach any technique you want to learn! I cant believe how confident I've become in Watercolour in just a few months!
Nicole Clark
The most wonderful art experiences. Always filled with great inspiration and people Carmen is passionate about art, her students and our collective wellbeing. This is more than just an art class, this is a seed that grows artists, friendships and love.
Brittney McLean
I have been doing weekly art classes with Carmen since mid 2017 and I have loved it! As a creative myself, it's difficult to find a different creative outlet but this is just perfect! Each week I get to paint something different and let my mind wonder. Carmen is a phenomenal teacher and the other ladies in class have become friends and colleagues. I work alone when I bake so having a class to attend and other people to interact with each week is such a great release and it has helped with my depression. I highly recommend joining a workshop or a weekly class. It will feed your soul!

We tried the art classes for the first time during lockdown! What a treat, a much-needed creative escape... we liked it so much that we bought some goodies and decided to try some YouTube tutorials... definitely not for us... nowhere near Carmen's level of teaching!! We will stick to Carmen's skilful instructions.
Gayle Moore
Carmen, thank you for everything you do for Sean! He has learnt so much in the short time that he has been your student. He is always inspired and motivated with his art, and always looks forward to his next lessons!! As for myself... I am so inspired to paint more, especially after the last two Thirsty Artist events. They were so much fun!!! I highly recommend Art classes and Thirsty Artist events to everyone!!
Jolene Phillips

Roxanne Casey
I have been to 6 online workshops! I have seen a remarkable transition from my first painting to now. Carmen makes the sessions fun and easy! Even the most scary complex pictures are turned into fun and laughter! Thank you Carmen for reigniting my passion for painting after 30 years of not doing any art at all! If you enjoy art! Carmen’s workshop is a must from the comfort of your own home!
