The process of co-creating is very fullfilling to Mandar. He believes that everyone is an artist at the core. It's only a matter of connecting with that artistic spark within and then the magic hapens in front of us.
Loved the class. I like that Mandar uses simple tools & materials and has a relaxed attitude towards art. Would love to attend more classes! Thanks!
I really enjoyed this class. The demo was very helpful. Mandar is on hand if you get stuck. I had gangs of fun and will return soon for the pastel class.
Thank you for the inspiring class. I learned to not overthink. :-)
This was my first ART CLASS and it was an enjoyable experience. Mandar is attentive, helpful and talented. He made the class comfortable for all levels. Even a novice like me walks away with a painting to enjoy!! Would highly recommend!
