Which course is best for my skill level?


I have used the following Skill levels to help you choose which course will suit your present ability.  Remember, these are guidelines only, and I have indicated on each course, the minimum level of experience needed to achieve the best results.

If you think you need a little help with your painting, or would like to learn online but in a group environment with an experienced facilitator check out POD hosted courses.

You can always book 1:1 consulting time with Ingrid, this available as an upgrade with every course.
