Very small and not a lot in it. Owner is very pleasant and interesting to talk to. Still worth a visit as there is no cost.

Had a fun morning with Graham teaching us the art of watercolor. A very patient man when tested as he brought out the artist within. For an enjoyable experience would suggest you give it a go.

We had such a fun afternoon learning about water colour painting and then putting it into practice and you get to take a 'masterpiece' home!

Thank you Sharyn. I had a great afternoon with the two of you also...especially when Gaye's mouth dropped open when I showed some techniques. :o) Graham

Have always wanted to do a water colour art class. Unforgettable experience, thoroughly enjoyed and I must say my painting of Emily Bay is frame worthy. Thanks Graham for your patience and knowledge and the meaning of apical dominance...ha ha ha.

My hubby bought the water-colour paint lesson for me as a gift. Graham was very welcoming. The lesson was relaxed and humor filled. Graham takes you through many tips and tricks from the start, his assumption that you'll naturally continue on with painting after the...More

This is a great gallery that offers watercolor lessons. The photos were fantastic and even more so knowing that none of his photos were computer enhanced. What you see is his skill at work.
