"Sarah has been running these workshops for some time... sometimes she uses recorded music and sometimes live musicians.... people who have attended these workshops have reported how beneficial the day is not just for releasing creativity but also as a relaxing and releasing for general tensions or worries in their lives. No experience necessary, this workshop is about helping you to use colour or develop use of colour or just to play with colour on paper."
"I had been sketching and drawing all my life (I am in my 70s). Sarah's Painting with Music course freed me to use colour in a completely new and surprising way. My friends were amazed."
