When I say that this class saved my life, it may sound a little dramatic but Jodi's easy-going class style, her gentle nature and way of encouraging you just opens up a world of possibilities. I'm a huge believer in art as therapy and after a particularly difficult year and a half, this class has turned me around - it's helped me find my way back through art, through design, through color and, of course, through encouragement. This is truly a very zen process - I can't recommend Jodi enough. Thank you Jodi!! xx

Clear instructions, great videos. Jodi takes you through the process step by step so even a "non artist" like me can have fun and create art.
