Painting Workshops Reviews and More

What follows are a few press reviews of our painting workshops  published in Europe, North and South America. We hope that you will enjoying them. Just to clarify; please notice that on the fourth reference about the “plucked” canoeists, we were not the “distressees“, but the saviors. It was on the Great Lake Huron during a painting workshop commemorating the Group of Seven.
