CLASSES – in Litchborough and Daventry    what they say:

‘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.
