I attended the two day course earlier this month. As a newbie to acrylics, De said she was going to blow my mind. She did that and more! Ilearned so much in the two days and left with a painting
I never would have believed was achievable for me. Now I’m saving up to attend another class …. this could become addictive

I have been to hundreds of seminars and conferences, but the Arts Tree Life Drawing workshop was the very best I have ever attended. I can’t believe how much I learned- I am drawing better every day now.

I have been reminded that if I can get through a whole weekend of painting, I can get through anything and triumph. Bring it on, world- I am an artist!

How wonderful to discover that De is willing to share the secrets of how she produces her wonderful work. The weekend was challenging, inspirational, exciting and SO worth the interstate travel. De’s expertise, knowledge and encouragement are a fantastic combination!

I was terrified of paint, and at first I only wanted to draw in class. 3 months in, De got me throwing paint around for the first time… and I loved it! Now, 3 years later, I’m selling my paintings. Thanks Arts Tree

As an experienced artist I found De’s tuition took me to places I have never been before. With new “tools” in my kit I am able to enhance my practice. A new adventure has begun!

I’m 82, and I realised that sitting in God’s waiting room was boring me to death. I’m now 85, and still coming to class every week. I can’t quite believe that all these wonderful paintings on mine and my family’s walls are all my own work!

Estelle, 85, www.artstree.com.au

I’ve always considered my garden full of native plants and bird-life to be my green cathedral. Now, with De’s help, I have learned to paint the birds I love so much, and hang the work on my own walls. Inside my home is now another kind of cathedral!

I’ve been following De Gillett’s work for more than 10 years. I could see that she really knew how to marry good drawing skills with an exciting looseness and vibrant colour. I’ve just completed the life-drawing workshop, and now I’m ready to go to my first Gesso Soup workshop. Excited, terrified…I can’t wait!
