  • 5 star review  Taking a class with Art in Bloom Academy is a great way to have fun while trying something new (with a cheeky beverage on the side to keep your courage up). I haven't done art since maybe primary school but even with no experience (and very little skill), I came away with a piece of artwork that I could be proud of. That's because of a wonderful teacher with lots of patience for wayward students, clear instructions and plenty of time to craft your masterpiece. Can't recommend it enough.

    5 star review  Eleshea's paint sessions are social and fun! No experience required is the best part! I had so much fun and walked away with a piece of ready to hang art work that there would be no way i could've done on my own.

    5 star review  I loved Art in Bloom's class! Well thought out, there was surprisingly enough time to make your painting. There was lots of laughs and it was great to see how everyone's turned out looking so beautiful but different. Perfect way to spend an afternoon and I will definitely go again 🙂

    5 star review  I have attended 2 of Eleshea's paint party classes so far and they were fantastic. They are a fun opportunity to get together with your friends and try something new. The environment is relaxed, you can drink a glass of wine while you paint and with different subject and painting styles you learn something new every time. I love the emphasis on the fact that these classes are totally suitable for everyone, from humble beginners to those more experienced so you can learn from each other. If you ever thought about trying to get into painting but think you 'can't' I can highly recommend booking in for one of the sessions as you will be guided step by step along the way and may just discover a hidden passion and talent.

    5 star review  ❤️❤️❤️ Totally love Elesha's art 🎨classes.. she's such an amazing talented teacher. I Iva never painted before and looking at my finished artwork it appeared that I had been doing painting for a very long time💕💕. The 🎨classes are quiet relaxed and I love the pace that Elesha takes you through to get to the end result.. . And the bestest part is you get to meet other lovely people there👌👌😀😀. One dose of the class is never enough.. you will wana keep coming back 🙂 Thanks Elesha..

    5 star review  I've been to a couple of classes with my partner and a friend. We enjoyed it and I learned a lot from it. I don't know how to paint at all but after Eleshea's classes I feel like Picasso. I can paint! (Not as good as Picasso and Eleshea though. �)
