“I don’t have a creative bone in my body!”  I hear you say… Don’t worry. I’ve taught many students who hadn’t picked up a brush since school. Now they are running their own successful businesses.

Had your arm twisted to face paint at the school fair?  We can show you how to impress the head teacher, contribute to the school funds, make the children smile and your friends with your Tigers and Butterflies!
