Testimonials

“Learning art with Ellen has been a rewarding and magical experience. As a painter she is absolutely brilliant when working the paint. As a teacher she is learned and patient. She is energetic, lively and always optimistic. I recommend art with Ellen to anyone, even someone with no experience in oils. She will turn you into the new Monet, Manet or Van Gogh.”

Tom

“Not only are Ellen’s classes informative and productive, but they are also extremely enjoyable. In a short period of time my skills and techniques dramatically improved. Ellen’s infectious enthusiasm has given me the drive to continue painting.”

Poli

“Someone asked me when I was 7 years of age what I wanted to be and I remember saying I wanted to be an Artist when I grew up.

So 4 children and a grandchild later I decided that I would like to learn oil painting and chose Ellen Michel at Art Maker Studio Gallery as my teacher.

I was such a challenge for Ellen as I had not even held a brush and I remember as I entered the front door I was finding it hard to remember back from school what colors made what when joined together.

I found that Ellen teaches from the start with a progressive program in oil painting that truly gives anyone an opportunity to realise their potential as an Artist.

I don’t really know why I left my run so late in life as family and friends and even myself didn’t realise I could paint so well.

Thank you Ellen for giving me the techniques in oil painting, your classes have been so enjoyable and challenging”
