Testimonials

See What Our Happy Customers Say

Leonie Brown is an amazing artist who brings the most ordinary to life -opening and taking one’s heart on the “deep and beautiful work of soul-making” (Sue Monk Kidd) we are all on.

 

She is a gifted teacher who takes you through the process of art step by step, giving you the tools and skills to work independently and with creative freedom. She is encouraging when you think you can’t draw or paint and has the gift of “stepping on one’s shoes without messing up their shine”.

 

Thanks, Leonie

Pam Topham

Leonie was the best art teacher I ever had!

 

She pays equal attention to every student in class, making sure to teach or give advice to one after the other while taking their different skill levels into account.

 

She is always friendly and respectful and is not only interested in her student’s progress but also in them enjoying what they do.

 

No matter what skill level you are, even if you’re beginning from scratch, I would definitely recommend LifeArt School.

Denise Reisenbauer

This is where I go to Art School on Friday mornings. For me, this is a dream come true, a second chance to do what I love and do it well.

Leonie Edna Brown teaches a complete art curriculum that starts you off with the absolute and fundamental basics and takes you all the way through to becoming a professional artist. I am still early in my journey, and I can tell you that my eyes have been opened in new ways, to see more clearly.

 

For those who are now sufficiently envious but cannot get to actual physical classes, Leonie has new online classes! So you too can learn in your own time! Go check it out!

And thank you, Leonie, for being the wonderful teacher you are!
