“Thank you so much for a brilliant day.  Sue and I both really enjoyed ourselves, it was so relaxed and made great fun by you both, and wow you are both so talented. We will definitely recommend you and look forward to coming again in the not too distant future.”

Joy Yates - 9/03/24 

“It was such a joy! Christine and Samantha love what they are doing and the joy and passion for their art form comes through in their teaching. The class is a small manageable number allowing for lots of personal attention and, for any others who may be slightly hard of hearing, so much easier to follow. They are doing a great job!”

Sonja Walt - 11/02/24 

“I recently attended a day session at CriSam acrylic pouring with my wife. This was my second visit having completed a half day session some few years ago. We had a really enjoyable day that was fun, informative and at the end produced three pieces of art to be proud of.
These ladies know there onions and I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone be budding artist or novice to try it out. At the end of the day what you will achieve will make you smile and that is very important in this day and age.”

“So peaceful! Can't stop admiring it. Thank you Chris for sharing it. I really enjoyed yr course this weekend and thoroughly recommend people to try it too. It is an invaluable experience in a peaceful surrounding and a great way to properly appreciate yr videos. I found the step by step explanation and the hand on experience very informative.”

"Thank you for a FABULOUS day. I just loved it and learnt and achieved so much more than I expected. I will defiantly be back for the landscape pour. We all just had such a great time. My sister, who claims not to have an artistic bone in her body, was delighted with the outcome and her son was buzzing! Thank you for looking after us so well and guiding us throughout the day."

Sam & Chris themselves were just brilliant. We will definitely book another one and would highly recommend giving this a try. Can’t wait to pick our paintings up. Thank you both, you’re the dynamic duo !!”
