Kind words from my wonderful students and clients
Zoë Fletcher Wednesday Art Class
What can I say about Zoë Fletcher? It's difficult to put her into any sort of mainstream box, but I'll do my best. I found Zoë late in 2010, at a time when I was really looking for something creative to do. She invited me to one of her art classes & I've been hooked ever since. The classes are small & intimate, which makes it easy for Zoë to get around to all of her students & she's such a joy to be around; full of positivity & good humour. I was a great drawer of stick figures & thought how utterly hopeless I would be in a class surrounded by seasoned artists, but my fears were allayed immediately, as the other students were very friendly & non judgmental. Zoë made me feel so welcome, & with her wealth of knowledge, constant encouragement, kindness & praise, I'm happy to say that I've progressed somewhat from stick figures. I'm able to paint so much more than I ever thought possible, AND in less than 12 months. I cant imagine what I'll be painting in a year or two, but one thing is certain, I'll still be attending Zoë's classes, which are extremely enjoyable & loads of fun.

A heartfelt thank you from Joy and Breann, she will always remember her 11th birthday with her grandmother.
What a wonderful day UNICORNS was.
Zoë encouraged our creativity to flow through the use of colours and new techniques, resulting in a balance of reality and fantasy drawings.
Our creative efforts have now been proudly displayed.

I can only state that not only is Zoë a wonderful and talented teacher, her creations are absolutely inspirational. I haven't drawn or painted for quite a number of years, I guess through a lack of confidence, but when I saw Zoe's beautiful paintings at Mingara Psychic Fair, I was inspired to give it another go. The colours and subjects were just too beautiful and I decided I could only try to do something that lovely.
Zoë makes drawing easy, whether for the first time or the hundredth, and so much fun that the day just flies by. Before you know it the day is at its end and I must admit that I was pretty overwhelmed with the final result of the image that I had been encouraged to create.
Now I have the 'bug' and I want to do more. So Zoe, you will be seeing much more of me, and I thank you from my heart for being such a wonderful catalyst in re-igniting my creative side.
I cannot praise Zoë enough for her patience and talent. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone who wants to let loose, have fun and the most enjoyment you will have in creating.
Don't wait. Don't ponder and most of all don't doubt. Book in now for Zoë's classes and you won't be sorry that you did.

Just a very big thank you for all your help in getting me on the right track with my art.
Since attending your wednesday art class and weekend workshops it has really inspired
me to try something different in my approach to trying new materials and art supports.
Your kind and encouraging words helped me be more confident in my application,
approach, and the interaction with other people was fun and enjoyable.
I highly reccommend anyone, whether a complete beginner or someone getting back
into art after a while, try Zoe's classes or workshops. She is truly inspiring. Since going
to Zoe's classes I built up the confidence to get a collection together of my works and
on moving to Melbourne have held my own exhibition - all thanks to Zoe's
encouragement. So thank you, Zoe... you're " The Bomb".

I attended my first class with Zoe because I was attracted to the colours of the pastels. Having only ever drawn stick people, I was expecting to have a lovely creative day, only I was blown away when I went home with a picture of a tiger that was admired by all who saw it. Zoe opened something up in me that has changed my life. I couldn't wait to try it at home and found the peace and tranquility in drawing touched every part of my life. Zoe's relaxed friendly style makes the day itself very pleasant and inspirational. I have found a resource in drawing that I did not know was possible.
