What they said:
“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!”
Sue Invernizzi after a trip to Barcelona with Sonia’s artchalet trip
‘Thank you very much for a fantastic art holiday . . .you were not only fun to be with, but also very inspiring and motivating’ – Antoinette Bastiaans
‘I can’t explain what these classes have done to my life, I now have a purpose every day, I draw and paint everything I see in the house to learn, I so look forward to the classes on a Wednesday to get out of the house and the company of all the others – we have a laugh, I am no longer lonely as I just love to get up in the morning now and paint some animals, a huge thank you to Sonia for enriching my life.’ Mary Morgan.
– “Thanks for the lovely session and inspiration. Now must search for that sketchbook” – Lynn Magorrian – student, after her first class at Litchborough.
CLASSES – I have relocated to beautiful North Wales but if you are looking for a class in Litchborough and Daventry, these are continuing with a student committee booking visiting artists, contact me for details

“I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my lovely picture. I haven’t stopped looking at it and as the days go by I love it more and more. Thank you for immortalising a special friend” – Sam Ellis on her portrait of her horse Micky.
