Here is what my students say about my Workshops:

Students about my person to person  workshops:

Hedwig Schlötjes Belle, The Netherlands – December 2011

Nat is a very inspiring and experimental girl who shows you good, new tricks and all new kind of techniques. Because of her experimental nature, you can be YOU in her workshops. No need to make what she does, but it’s about being creative yourself. Much better, if you ask me, and i have experience as i was in her PanPastel class which i liked VERY much. Besides that, Nat is a kind person, quick in answering questions and encouraging you as a student.

Francoise Papillon, Belgium – December 2011

Nathalie gives a lot of technical content: in the end I knew which Tattered Angels paints is to be used for what and why and how! She gives the information in a structured way, which makes it easy to listen to. She uses the products and the project to underline your explanation. Nathalie demonstrates what needs to be demonstrated and leaves enough space for discovery. She gives liberty to interpretation: everyone can make his own thing or when feeling insecure, there’s still possibility to ‘copy’. She moves around during class: everyone gets his share of attention, encouragement,  comment or help if needed. Nathalie supplies more than enough material so that everyone can work at his pace without worrying about stash. She organizes the workspace: everyone knows where to find the necessary material. She entertains people during your class: there’s room for casual talk with her students. In short: I absolutely like the way she teaches!

 

Linda Brun, Norway – December 2011
I took my first online class with Nathalie summer 2010 through CraftEduCommunity. I had then already booked 3 classes with Nat for the PACS 2010 in november and I wanted to be prepared and check out what this paint and ink thing was.
Well I fell in love at once, with the paint and the mist and the way Nathalie teaches. So when I arrived in Paris I was so happy to play and learn from a great artist.
She is friendly, funny and very lovable. I have taken online classes with Nath after Paris and I was so happy when she came to Norway and my home town spring 2011.
I know she inspired many girls that attended her classes, including me. 
 
 I went back to school this year, studying graphic design.I would say that Nath is one of the people that inspires to do this, me with her work and personality. 
I consider Nat as a friend and hope that one day soon we can play together with paint and other mediums.

Students about my Über*Media Online Workshops:

 

Martha Richardson, USA:

Nathalie’s workshop introduced me to techniques using PanPastels, an art medium that I had never used before. To be able to concentrate on just one art medium allowed me to gain knowledge that I can  use over & over again. I highly recommend taking an online workshop with Nathalie. I will be signing up for the next in the series of her workshops!

Carmen Sanchez, Spain:

“Über*Media PanPastels workshop has been so much fun. Nathalie knows how to make things amusing. The workshop covers lots of different uses for PanPastels in the mixed media field. The videos and pdf files are very useful and descriptive. The sample projects are so creative. Also the timing is great. You have plenty of time to play and practice in between classes and Nathalie is always willing to help and answer your doubts. I’d totally recommend it”

Charlene Ocasek:

Well I just finished Nat’s class Uber Media Gesso and it was the best thing I could have done. I was introduced to gesso in Julie Balzers class 30 Days in you Journal and I was crazy for gesso. Nat is such a good instructor, she explains everything so well. She never hesitates to tell you what products work with gesso so you get the best results. The one thing about Nat, besides her great sense of humor is that she is very hands on with her students. I will definitely take other classes with Nat and I highly recommend this course. Thanks Nat!!!!

Tineke, The Netherlands:

Just finished the Acrylic Paint classes (long version) and I LOVED it! For me it was an exciting exploring adventure cause I’m new to all this art fun stuff. I just LOVE the way Nathalie teaches. So relaxed, funny and talented. I will miss her ‘pretty cool’ talk and my weekly adventure but hey there’s more!!!! My new next adventure will be the Pan Pastels workshop and after that I want to know all about Gesso. Yep, I’m hooked:-) Thank you so much Nathalie, you’re in my heart. Thank you for everything. You’re such a BEAUTIFUL person. Loads of love from Tineke/TeedeJee

Jennifer Palmer, Tasmania – Australia

Wow Nat’s gesso class is amazing and I am so glad I did it. Nat teaches you so much about gesso and how to use it in so many different ways. Her teaching methods are so simple and easy to understand and I never once have been frightened to try something in her class and have been amazed at the results I have achieved
This class is excellent. Nat is easy to ask for help if needed and I cannot wait to do my next class with her.
