Having crossed paths with many teachers up till now, I can honestly say that Leach is a great one. She makes it fun and stress-free. She is generous, doesn’t hold back, makes sure you learn enough so that you can find your own way after. She’s given me insights into the nitty gritties like paper, paint and brushes. Lots of tips from really basic like how to load a brush to, during the final lesson, how to deconstruct an artwork so that I can try to do it myself – which is awesome for me, a complete newbie to painting anything. The best tip of all? In art, as in life, nothing is perfect, less is usually more, so LET IT GO. Thanks very much, Leach!
