We did not have a good time. She just went to fast! She really didn't give us any tips if we messed up. Not happy at all.

She was amazing! Had a great time painting, clear, easy instructions, made it incredibly simple to paint a gorgeous piece of art. I laughed a lot! Can't wait to do the next one!!
