Reviews & Feedback
I enjoyed it very much. I am familiar with Annette’s teaching style and so I was able to sketch along, but I think that would be possible if not familiar. The follow-up video allows another attempt at the learner’s pace and also further practice.
Annette is a great teacher since she explains everything clearly and simply. She imparts a sense of fun and helps even beginners feel self-confident. I have done an online class, as well as an in-person class on location, with Annette. Both were excellent!
Enjoyed a great 4 day sketching holiday with Annette in Quarante, France. Excellent tuition with useful exercises and tips. I think I became a little more colourful!! Annette is very organised, inspirational and enthusiastic. The bed and breakfast accommodation with Annika was “palatial” but so relaxed and comfortable that it was like staying with an old friend. I would recommend this holiday to all sketchers. Kaye
You don’t have to be an artist or any good at drawing to have a fabulous time with Annette. First time sketching and the time flew past. And our sketches actually look like something!!! Great time and learned so much.
This was a great workshop by one of my favourite watercolour artists. The pace was fast (although I do appreciate the time restraints) and I was able to follow along for most of it and then complete any finishing touches afterwards. The PDF was a welcome addition as a step by step guide too.
The most patient, encouraging and talented teacher there is. A micro grain of creativity will be rooted out by Annette and hey presto…. a new world of art and fun.
I attended a Paris weekend earlier this year with Annette Morris Art. It was fantastic, we really explored Paris and captured lots of memories in our sketching. Highly recommended!
Thank you for sharing your talent and encouraging others. Looking forward to more classes next year.
Fantastic day Annette. I feel inspired to sketch at will again.
I really enjoyed the workshop with Annette! She’s so friendly and she knows how make you feel confident (even if you never sketched before…)
It was a lovely day!! I look forward to the next one!
Thank You Annette!!
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful morning. It was so enjoyable and therapeutic!
Overwhelmed with the skills I learned and the results I achieved as a novice artist. Highly recommended.
I had the pleasure of attending Annette’s workshop at Montouliers in September. It was a great spot for a workshop and Annette was such a generous and inspiring teacher. I learnt lots of new things and quick tips and tricks from her to use in my sketches. I wish I lived closer so I could go to more of her classes!
I’ve been meaning to say thank you; I don’t think I would have had the courage to make this painting (Keifer’s Dream) if we’d not done our splashing session together.
The instructor did an excellent job explaining her process and my initial drawing proportions were better than usual for me. I will try her techniques on other drawings.
I just thought I would write to tell you how much I enjoyed that wonderful few days with Ian in Montpellier. I need hardly tell you that I have been on many art courses and holidays, and I have no hesitation in saying that that was clearly one of the most enjoyable. Let me pay particular tribute to the way in which you quietly and discreetly organised everything. I don’t remember any single thing going wrong. You may well be a born artist: you’re certainly a born manager.
We are both so delighted with our time spent with you. We so appreciate your kindness, patience and encouragement! You are awesome!
Many thanks to Annette for a great introduction to sketching last Saturday in Montpellier. A day packed with information, advice and encouragement. A much needed boost to my confidence. Can’t wait for the next one! 💕💕💕
Annette is a wonderful teacher and has a great style. She is relaxed, fun to be with, and very helpful. I highly recommend her!
I’m a novice, and have been to some of Annette’s classes recently. She’s a kind and patient teacher. If you want to try sketching in a supportive space, I can recommend Annette’s sessions.
Thank you for a great class today, despite the weather! We are looking forward to practicing our sketching.
Thanks so much for yesterday, it was very enlightening, and fun.
The tips are great and I’ll refer to them as I hopefully continue my sketching. I look forward to doing another session with you.
My wife Heather started zoom sketching classes with Annette Morris of Sketch Languedoc during the lockdowns in the UK. She was thrilled with how quickly Annette’s teaching yielded results. However, nothing is as much fun as being outside in the fresh air in a beautiful Covid safe setting. If you are in the area, don’t miss her brilliant workshops or sign up for her Zoom classes online.
Thank you for stretching us, Annette. A completely new style (Faux Stained Glass) for me. What a wonderful day.
Annette is a terrific teacher and talented artist. HIghly recommend taking a class with her!!!!!!
