A word from my students

"Bobbin was my instructor for a recent Watercolor class in my community which I really enjoyed.  I learned many new things in each class.  I found her to be a very encouraging and positive instructor." 

—Arlene Speiser

"Bobbin is a great watercolor teacher.  I took many classes with her and three other students in our Community.  She explains things well and always has samples of techniques. I really enjoyed the classes that included lessons, doing our own thing and a few laughs. Definitely recommend her!" 

—Arlene Sapoff

"I have known Bobbin for many years both as a friend and art teacher. She is not only a beautiful artist but a wonderful teacher. I have learned so much from her and have become a much better artist as a result of her encouragement and gentle suggestions. Anyone who wants to improve their painting skills with watercolor or acrylics would benefit from Bobbin’s classes." 

—Donna Donelan

"Since taking the watercolour course with Bobbin I've enjoyed painting and playing with various techniques. I had no previous experience and thought I had no talent but Bobbin taught us the basics and encouraged us to experiment. She is very animated and made it fun to be there."

—Carol Culig
