It was my pleasure to study watercolor painting with Diana Fava over this last summer.
Not having held a watercolor paintbrush for more than 50 years, Dianna taught me new techniques along with improvements made to painting equipment and their uses. We completed three projects.
I intend to attend the one day workshops that Diana will be offering from time to time during the winter month.

I had a great time Saturday and learned some valuable lessons (hopefully I'll remember them!) I like that you got right to the subject at hand and we actually did something worthwhile on our very first lesson. It was fun and informative and I am excited about continuing my lessons!

I really enjoyed your art class! You are a great teacher. I learned to a lot of watercolor techniques including washes and wet, and also learned ways to fix mistakes. I got a lot of individual attention and also enough time on my own to build my confidence. I was inspired to paint more and try new things after every class.
Having taken both group and private classes in different media with Dianna, I can say that all of her techniques and instruction have helped to take my painting skills to a level that I could not have reached without her help. Diana really provides excellent instruction, with encouragement and advice from novice painter through to established artist, who wish to perfect their skills.
I continue to learn with each new piece, and look forward to creating many more works of art in the future.

I just wanted to thank you again--I had wanted to find some one willing to teach a beginner like myself, but what really impressed me the most as I wandered about at the art display recently at Thornbrooke, not only did I admire your paintings, but you were the only one with matting and framing congruent with the painting----many thanks--I look forward to many classed with you!

Hello Diana--enjoyed the class this morning a great deal.
Learned lots of things I have wanted to know about for quite a while. I think you will definitely have an impact on my painting styles and I sure look forward to all the great techniques that you have to pass on. It will be fun to see what happens in the next 5 weeks. I also like my classmates and it's very instructional watching you instruct them as well. Sort of like second hand smoke--it all filters over.
Thanks, Pat Day
