What they said-
“Lisbon was really nice. It was such a good mix of everything – enough time to sketch, visit places, lovely people, good accommodation and very good food. I must say I think it was the best painting holiday I’ve had. You were always on hand to guide and inspire me and such lovely company too. Thank you. You will definitely see me next year as I have put a deposit for Croatia.”
“I now have a new lease of life with my art thanks to you and sketchtrips. I’m sorting out all my art stuff after a couple of years neglect and looking to doing more next year. I’ll be in touch shortly ”
“My first experience of any holiday with a theme or in a group! Immediately felt comfortable within the group, and so well organise, looked after. I had never tried sketching, or any form of Art and found tremendous encouragement, helpful critique and support from Sonia, and the whole group. I came home enthusiastic to find the time to continue, join a class, as so relaxing! What have I missed all my life, by saying I can’t draw! I can!”
