Students about my person to person workshops:
Charlotte Anderson, UK – October 2012
Diane aka Nurse Ratchet, Canada – July 2012
Each and everyone of the workshops at Bizzy B were outstanding. Nat is one of the best teachers I have ever taken a workshop with…and there have been many. Run, do not walk if you ever have the opportunity to participate in one of Nat’s workshops. Paints, gesso, sprays and sparkly goodness all weekend long!! I sincerely felt like I was at summer camp and met wonderful new friends! And came home with fabulous new techniques to enjoy! Thanks Nat,eh

If you ever have a chance to take a class with Nathalie – DO IT! She is tons of fun – she has tons of product knowledge, will teach you lots of technique and she is great at helping you unleash your creativity – and did I mention she is lots of fun? ….Nat we can’t wait ’til you come back!

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.

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!
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”
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
