"[It was] my first experience of an art/drawing workshop. Gimara was very patient & coped well with the varying levels of ability. The content [was] both interesting and informative. Gimara [was] well prepared with all the materials available. The workshop atmosphere created by Gimara was fun, friendly and relaxed" Helen from a Drawing and Painting workshop held in Stevenage.
