"If you are looking for a great weekend or mid-week activity, then I highly recommend an Artopia session with Beth. I really enjoyed reconnecting with my "creative" side and Beth was a very knowledgeable and attentive art teacher. She is patient and takes the time to demonstrate techniques in a way that is easy to understand. Most importantly, Beth makes sure you have lots of fun!  I learned that there are no mistakes in art.  You allow your piece to unfold and take a life of its own.  I was very chuffed with my final works and felt a great sense of accomplishment!"
