Facebook Reviews (see our facebook page for more)

4 star review  From one 11 and one 14 year old girl: Really enjoyed it and great results at the Go Sketch Portraiture Workshop in WoT. Possibly improved upon if the group was split into two different age groups with slightly different info being given to each group.

5 star review  Emma came to inspire my son’s young guests at his 7th birthday in Clevedon! The whole hour was fantastic, everyone was enthralled the whole time creating Brusho Art with some stunning effects – and it brought out the hidden artist in everyone. Mummy could relax and prepare the food knowing everyone was happy creating mini masterpieces!

5 star review  Thank you so much for my daughter’s 7th birthday arty party, she and her friends had a fantastic time designing patterned animals and loved that they got to take their artwork home on a professional canvas!

5 star review  We had a GoSketch party for our 8 year old daughter and her friends. They had a fantastic time. Emma was lovely with them and guided them through creating their masterpiece. It was a calm and creative party that the children all enjoyed. Made it really easy too as Emma provided all the materials and invites. There was nothing to clear up after, so we could just get on with having some food. Would definitely recommend. Our children have done lots of artwork since then, so were definitely inspired. Thank you.
