This is a wonderful workshop. Patty Van Dyke is an excellent teacher. Her ability to convey design principles and techniques is clear and precise. She has an inner spirit that is positive and encouraging. True.y worth every penny to be a student of hers, The facility, Crown Plaza, is hospitable and welcoming, the staff is very attentive. The food is fresh and very tasty. The coordinator for this event was very attuned to each and every detail. Participants were well cared for.

A great workshop; we tried all sorts of new techniques, saw demonstrations firsthand, tried them ourselves. Stimulated my painting urge.

Just completed a four full-day watercolor workshop in Ventura, California and am stoked to continue my painting efforts. I'm a neophyte, no threat to the artistic establishment, but found that the participants were of varying experience and talent and the wonderful instructor Patty Van Dyke could accommodate us all. If you have any interest in learning to paint with watercolors, a most challenging medium, definitely consider this great course. The hotel where we stayed was right on Ventura's beach; I could see surfers, sandpipers and sunsets from my hotel window and the Poad Scholar leaders and hotel staff were hospitable and accommodating. A 5-star holiday.*****
