School Visits

‘Melissa is not only a fantastic artist, but an inspirational one. Whether it’s through classroom workshops, after-school club sessions or small group projects, children of all ages engage well, gain confidence and ultimately improve. This is all achieved in a calm and purposeful atmosphere and positive working environment. Melissa is flexible to adapt to changes of space, group size and age, as well as being willing to put her skills to the test across a vast range of styles and themes. She is an excellent communicator and is a pleasure to deal with from both an organisational and delivery point of view. I cannot recommend Melissa highly enough … a passionate, diligent artist who helps children to be the very best they can be.’

'My daughter is so excited when she realises she has another lesson with Melissa.  After attending sessions my daughter’s skills and confidence with all art, particularly drawing, have soared.  Melissa is a very patient and passionate teacher who really knows her stuff.

Drink and Draw

'Tonight was brilliant! I loved it! Such a lovely balance of fun and feeling like I learnt something. W ell done! The pace and delivery was amazing!'

'I can't remember the last time I just sat and drew, this is so much fun.'

'Thank you! We really enjoyed ourselves.  It was great to be being creative again and trying new things'.


'I really enjoyed Drink and Draw.  A good mix of people (all ages, people on their own, with friends or out on dates) - with a wide range of artistic ability.  This meant we all felt comfortable.  Under Melissa's guidance we all created some lovely drawings and had loads of fun doing it! It was a really enjoyable, no-pressure environment and the glass of wine included helped my creative side come out!'
