Hello, lovelies! 🙂
I hope you’re all enjoying your break, and managing to squeeze in some relax-time. We had some arty holiday fun last week, with all four holiday workshops filling up! Wonderful. See the Facebook page for pics of our activities (link below)!
Term 3 at Budding Artists is now open for enrolments. **Please note that, as I’ll be away in Week 1, and getting home very late the night before Week 2’s class, term will START IN WEEK 3 (Wed 6th August).** It will therefore be an 8 week term.

A happy customer writes: “J loves coming to your classes. It’s a nice little relax time for her, time to be creative, no pressure. You are so encouraging and allow the kids the freedom of their own expression. She has brought home so much lovely art work that she is so proud of. I love how happy your class makes her. Thank you Kirsty xx”. VM – Mum of a Budding Artist
