“Peggy is so easy to work with, she is easy going, kind and encourages exploration.  In the courses I took, Peggy included elements of teaching basic concepts such as elements of design, information about paints and colours, and papers and lots of “hands-on” teaching.  She would help students who were “blocked” and didn’t know where to go next with a painting by working directly with them without ever taking over.  She encourages creativity and is always a lovely presence in the classroom.  Loved having Peggy as an instructor. I also found that I could take the same class over and still keep learning because she always works with the student at the level they are at. Glad to recommend Peggy Burkosky!

“Peggy is able to simplify watercolour painting to suit the beginner or more advanced painter. Her lessons and demos are inspiring. She is able to teach what each individual needs to know.
This class is worth taking as many times as you can!”

 We had such a great time. Everything went over smoothly and our guide was very knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone. They really exceeded my expectations. I know I'll be back for sure!”
