TESTIMONIALS


a fun place to learn. . .

I'm really thankful we found Georgie, my daughter has found her art group stimulating & a fun place to learn new techniques she had never tried before. Georgie teaches the kids the foundations of how to produce and be inspired by different techniques to draw, paint and create her very own piece; not something the whole group has to produce to look identical.

positive and gentle guidance. . .

Georgie's workshops are truly inspirational. My daughter, Olivia, loves every minute of her art class and and she doesn't want it to end. If given the choice she would probably swap all other school classes for an endless art workshop.

I can't recommend Georgie enough. Georgie's positive and gentle guidance, encouragement and confidence in her students abilities brings out the best in the kids and once given the tools for their art discovery journey, the transformation is remarkable.

loved every minute . . .

Our son and daughter have loved every minute of Georgie's workshops and have flourished in their artistic endeavours as a result. In fact, our daughter came home from school with an "Outstanding Achievement Award" for a picture she painted using the techniques she had gained in the Perspective's workshop. Both children looked forward to the sessions, learned a huge amount and loved spending time with Georgie.

Printing!

I enjoyed printing! We carved a pattern and then rolled ink on to the pattern. Next then put our patterns through the press and printed it on to cards. I enjoyed printing but I found it tricky inking up our patterns because you need to put a balanced amount of ink on the design. I also found it tricky carving the design because you can't see very clearly what you are carving and sometimes your hand slips off the edge. I found it easy putting the design through the press because it's very easy and I really enjoy seeing the design at the end. I loved printing and would do it again another week.

love your classes. . .

I just wanted to say thank you. The artwork the children brought home yesterday is fantastic! They love your classes and you obviously know how to get the best out of them! 
We are going to frame them we are so proud of them both.

. . . exceeds my expectations.

Georgie is a wonderful and creative artist, she really gets enthusiastic with your ideas and creates concepts and visions that go beyond your own imagination. I feel she understands what I need from my simple briefs, delivers on time and always exceeds my expectations.

warm, creative environment . . .

Rigby House Design has offered my daughter a safe, warm and creative environment to explore her interest in art.  Georgie is skilled and knowledgeable and has really set my daughter’s creativity in action.   It’s been wonderful to watch her inspiration grow and the standard of work she’s produced has far exceeded my expectations of her.  She has really blossomed under Georgie’s tuition!
