From Our Customers

Last summer 6 of us drive out to Blueberry Broad Diversion's cabin set up for a paint and paddle day.  It was amazing!  I had never been on a kayak or paddle board and learned to do both in one day!  We all came home with a painting done as well.  I am an artist and I was with some newbies.  We all were at different levels and all were happy with our paintings.  It was a fabulous day excursion and we all plan to return this year!  Absolutely a 5 star experience.

You do a wonderful job of teaching. Totally enjoy all your classes. You always pay close attention to detail and help us see some things we don't see for ourselves. My paintings at home never turn out as good as the paintings you help me with.

Helen's classes are a perfect escape from my hectic life!  I prefer the acrylic classes and have made signs for myself and as gifts, and even took a damaged TV table and made it beautiful using Helen's materials and expertise.  Helen makes all of her guests feel like artists and truly brings out the creativity we all possess.

I have taken one paddleboard session and loved it.  I hope to be able to do more of that in the future.

I took one of your water colour classes and enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and no pressure to produce a perfect piece. You were very supportive and encouraging.
