Had an amazing character art training day with Mel. It was so relaxed, but we got loads done and Mel is so professional and knowledgeable. I love her passion for the art and industry, she lives and breathes it and it shows. Highly recommend this or any other course with her. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks so much Mel. I’ll be back soon. Xxxxx
