From a recent attendee
"Alex had never attempted to face paint until a week or so before coming on training and begged me to let her join her mom and attend. Her transformation now that she has something she can do and is proud of is very marked and in just a week after your training she is experimenting almost daily and now feels she has something she can do well and wants to progress further. If anyone needed proof professional training works this must be it, it was money well spent"
2 day beginners class March 2011
