Alma was very patient and made sure I got the most of the session. I was quite slow compared to others but Alma waited till I finished my painting and helped me with the technicalities without rushing me. I thoroughly enjoyed the class.

I enjoyed the workshop, it was about the experience of watercolors, and the goal was to prevent all participants from enjoying coloring the drawing in their own style, with the technique of trainer alma

I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone. You will receive great advice and Alma's full attention while working on your painting. I enjoyed the clam atmosphere and the fact that only a limited number of people can participate. In the end I had to leave earlier and Alma gave me colours to finish my painting at home. Really happy with the whole experience. As someone who didn't paint for years, I found the class easy to follow and feel more confident to start painting again.

Alma is a brilliant teacher who immediately put me at ease with her welcoming and friendly nature. Her studio has a lovely relaxing vibe and the evening flew by in the best way possible! After a great introduction to our tools and some simple instructions we were all able to create pictures we were really pleased with. Alma is so encouraging and was always on hand to offer advice throughout the session. I would definitely recommend - it such a fun evening!

I cannot recommend Alma more! She is so talented and patient with her students and you can tell she genuinely cares and wants you to enjoy the class as much as she does. Her studio in SW is so lovely as well and she provides everything you need. I will definitely be going back to more of her classes.

The workshop was amazing no other words for it! I have learned technics, and although I paint quite often with water colours, Alma introduced me to different techniques and organised the way I work. Also I have to add her and Roland are so welcoming and have an amazing vibe! Thanks for this experience! 🌼❤️🌼

I attended the watercolour painting class with Alma, it was a great experience. She was so very warm and patient with me as I have never done this before. I would differently be attending another of her classes. Keep up the great work Alma.
Gosia Pietniewicz - 18 April 2022
Loved the class. Nice small studio, Alma was very nice. I learned new techniques and had a relaxing experience. I'll book a class with her again.
Student - 15 April 2022
Very good class. Learned about different paints and papers as well as some basic watercolor techniques.
CECILIA TAYLORTaylor - 3 April 2022
I’ve had a lovely time at Almas workshop. Thanks Alma for the tips you gave us and for organising the event.
Emma - 12 March 2022
This was a delightful class, Alma was fantastic and created a really welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. 2 hours flew by creating our paintings! We learnt the basics of watercolour which I’d never been taught despite painting plenty in the past and she shared lots of useful advice on various mediums. I’m delighted by the finished result which was mounted to take home and will make a great gift…
Stef - 6 March 2022
Fun and cosy watercolour class. We learned a lot of useful tips and walked out with our first (framed!) watercolour artwork. Alma is un excellent teacher and very entertaining. The time really flew by!
Saskia - 27 February 2022
We absolutely loved this watercolour class. Alma was so kind, a brilliant teacher, and we felt a real sense of achievement at the end. Alma’s studio is gorgeous and we were able to relax amongst her art, and Alma even mounted our paintings to take home which was a special surprise. Would very much recommend!
Anviksha - 22 February 2022
Alma was a wonderful teacher and gave a brilliant introduction to watercolour painting. She went through all the best paints, paper, types of brushes to use as well as brush strokes and water control. I'd done a bit of watercolours before and was blown away with all the tips she gave. She really let us use our imagination and just paint how we wanted to after giving us some structure. Would bring my friends along to another class for sure! My only downside was I had to travel home in the terrible weather and I lived on the other side of London so was long to get to!
George Wood - 19 February 2022
Absolutely loved the watercolour class. Alma is an amazing and inspiring tutor - such a relaxing and creative afternoon. About to book the acrylic class!
Maya Bischoff - 14 February 2022
Alma is a talented artist and an incredibly generous teacher- probably the most generous I’ve ever met! She wants you to succeed and gives her all to achieve this. I love the balance between demonstration & guidance and creative freedom in her classes, her kind and fun approach and the safe, lovely atmosphere she creates. Please do not miss this!
Chloe - 6 February 2022
Really enjoyed the class with Alma, she’s a good teacher! I took away several tips and tricks to help improve my watercolour painting skills, and with it being a small class, Alma could spend 1-on-1 time with all us and answer any questions we had. The fact I got to take home a finished piece with a wall mount was great! Would love to do a class focused on landscape/scenes in freestyle

Alma’s class was absolutely amazing! She thoroughly went through watercolour techniques before we went on to the final piece. Her studio is relaxing and comfortable and Alma is such a friendly person. I have come away learning some new skills that I cannot wait to put into practice. I have already booked my next class with her! Highly recommend to anyone with a creative flair.

Ariel Kendall - 27 January 2022
Alma’s class was amazing, she was knowledgeable and an excellent mentor. We came with self taught skills in watercolor and guided us through various techniques, advising us how to improve and get the most out of our art styles. Overall, learned a lot, the atmosphere was calming and wholesome, Alma was a wonderful teacher and I recommend this experience 11/10

This class was great and have already recommended it to other friends. Myself and 3 other family members went with varying watercolor and artistic experience. Alma put everyone at ease straight away and taught us the basics, letting us have a practice before starting the birds of paradise piece. She is a great teacher and was able to spend time helping us individually to improve our technique but also give hints and tips to the whole group. Very talented artist and teacher. The only downside about the class was it wasn't long enough! Would love to go back and do another class! Thank you Alma for a lovely time!
Rom Diaz - 20 December 2021
I had a chance to attend Alma's Birds of Paradise class for a couple of hours. Alma has helped us understand how to start properly with watercolours, she taught us how to choose the right materials, brands, and surfaces. I really enjoyed the floral exercise as well before starting the main piece. This class exceeded my expectations. I'm coming back.
Ro Bozzanga - 8 December 2021
I never painted before but within two hours I have learned how to use a palette knife, perspective and choose complementary colours to make a professional painting. I cannot recommend enough Alma's class; starting from a very cosy environment, good music and drinks. Alma is very patient and approachable. I wish I could upload my finished painting here because seriously, what you'll learn here is good stuff.
Carrie Morris - 21 November 2021
I really enjoyed this class and the venue is quite relaxing and cosy. Alma gave us so much positive feedback and encouragement and we learnt lots of amazing techniques. A fantastic evening that I cannot recommend enough.
