WHAT OTHERS SAY

about

Jill Nash Hansen

"This was a really wonderful evening and I would recommend Aneta Wnek's class to those who enjoy to find their hidden talents. Added bonus with lovely cheeses, champagne, strawberries and chocolates.

This workshop was eye opening, I hold myself back from so much because I fear failure. Being in a safe space, able to explore your creativity with no pressure of perfection was so refreshing!!”

Angie

"Loved it! We all are great Artists.

 

Thanks to Aneta we all discovered we all have creative talent. Anyone can do it. A fun night X"

Kat Stewart – EDITH COWAN UNIVERSITY

“When planning my team building day, I had specific themes, ideas and outcomes in mind. Aneta helped me incorporate these ideas into the workshop and made many helpful suggestions.

 

Aneta’s facilitation was engaging and all of the activities tied together well.

 

The team had a fantastic day – and they all left with smiles on their faces and knowing each other a little better.

 

The workshop was one of the best team building days that I have ever seen – I would recommend Aneta’s workshops for any organisation looking to bring their team closer together and encourage creative thinking.”

Roy Aveling

"It's a fun evening with Aneta and the other Charcoalers - lots of laughs, very relaxed and we all surprised ourselves thanks to Aneta's relaxed focus on us reaching our uninhibited creative spaces, she made it surprisingly easy.

 

The champers, cheese and chocs were a bonus. If you think you can't draw or sketch, let Aneta help you clear that away. As a result, I've taken up sketching, which, for most of my life I didn't think I could do, now I know I can. Good work Aneta.

"Last night I attended a very cool creative event where we learnt to look at things differently.

 

Thanks to the lovely model for letting us capture her. Thanks to the gorgeous and talented Aneta Wnek for encouraging us to step out of our comfort zone and give things a go.

REVIEW – Cate from WEEKEND NOTES

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Charcoal and Champagne class and can recommend it for all levels of experience. It is rare to get an opportunity to do life drawing for fun and I certainly learnt something from it." 

Robert and Sofia

"Can't say we weren't nervous – but it turned out to be a really creatively inspiring evening. We met a great group of people and even discovered we could draw.

 

Really fun night out as a couple too, highly recommend Charcoal and Champagne to anyone looking for something different to do in Perth ! "

Mikaela Miller‎

"I attended your life drawing class on Saturday night.

 

I really enjoyed it and thought it was great. I showed my 7 year old some of the nudity free pictures I drew and she was so intrigued by the process of drawing with charcoal and the little challenges that you set for us during class that she wanted to do them herself.

 

These are her drawings that she did today. Thank you for inspiring myself and her to try something different."

Vicki Sheedy

"Aneta thank you so much for an amazing night and experience. We all learnt so much and had heaps of fun as well. The photos are fantastic, we all look like real artists! We will definitely recommend your class to everyone. It really was a fantastic experience. You are totally amazing. X "

"What a brilliant evening. Loved every moment. I knew I'd have fun, but didn't really expect I'd produce anything worthwhile ....but I surprised myself. Wonderful :-) thanks so much Aneta!

Anna Davis

Thanks Aneta for creating such a wonderful business 😊 whilst I was nervous before the workshop started, once we got into it, it was the most relaxed I had felt in months. Aneta was so warm and welcoming and created a really safe space for everyone to share and laugh and have a fun time. I felt inspired to get creative again and I definitely recommend giving this class a go xx

"Aneta’s teaching method’s were unique and effective. She challenged everyone to open their mind, and to see things in light and shade, rather than simply in conventional borders.

 

I walked in to the class as a drawer, and I think it’s not too bold to say that when I walked out, I was on my way to becoming an artist, or at least understanding art.

 

It is not often that one can see – quite literally – how much has been learned in the space of a couple of hours. I think this is valuable because it proves that people can develop skills completely outside of their comfort zone.

 

I expect that I will draw on this experience for confidence when I am next faced with performing a task that is outside my comfort zone.

 

I really enjoyed the class and I would be keen do a course. I think that doing things that are completely out of step with the rest of your daily routine helps to ensure a broad experience of life.

 

And of course, live art is a great reminder that beauty comes in many shapes and sizes."

Bonnie Durham

“I loved this class! If you've ever considered exploring your creativity - this is a safe and encouraging place to give it a go. Guided activities help to learn but the freedom is there to find your style. Not to mention the champers and a good laugh. PS I framed my ‘masterpiece’ I loved it so much!  🙌 Highly recommended.”

"I just wanted to say thank you for my experiences at your classes (Charcoal & Champagne pop-up and Big Drawing Workshop), you are a great teacher and you really inspired me to get back into my drawing and try a few new things. Since the classes I have got myself an easel and some charcoal and have started doing more and more drawing."
