I just wanted to let you know how fun, as well as educational, your Watch-Learn-Play mini lessons have been. It's so nice to have a little tidbit to accomplish (or at least try) when I have just a little bit of time to work. You are an exceptional teacher - very calm, easy to follow and honest. (Marjory)

 

Andrea is endlessly creative! I don’t know how she does it, but she offers lessons with techniques and inspiration that are new and different and never get boring. And she is an excellent teacher with an unfailing positive and supportive approach to teaching. (Carol)


I love my Watch Learn Play subscription for it's content and flexibility! Several short lessons are uploaded weekly so there is always plenty of new content! The lessons are full of techniques which help me so much across all my projects and paintings. All lessons stay available in the classroom and I've made several a few times. Try it out, you will love it! (Louise)

I “found Andrea” early this year in The Bookmaker Collective and she’s a huge source of inspiration and my go to for quick fun art play, answers to questions, and a good laugh now and again. (Jo Ann)
