Bernadette Early: (Ireland) “I’ve simply had a blast!! Cannot think of anything more relaxing and more challenging. Bring on the pastels!!”

Nicky Dewar: (Johannesburg) “What a treat for the senses! Sun, sea, sleep, sand, good food and art…this was a wonderful break away, and challenged and stimulated me artistically. It’s a highly recommended course for everyone – even if you only draw stick figures!”

Ian Young: (Johannesburg)”This course has many facets and it exposed us all to a very wide range of skills and techniques. I found the range of abilities of the participants both intimidating and stimulating. Great care had been taken with the pre-preparation and the attention to culinary requirements was a highlight.”

Denise Pople:(Durban) “I am very glad that I took the step and booked this course. Being a complete novice, I have learnt a lot and can not wait to get home and practice on my own time to become the Van Gogh that I am. Loved the diversity and the planned dinners together was amazing. I will definitely be attending your next course – if you have the strength to have me. Thanks Hesther and Ajay.”

Engela Ferreiera: “Joining the art classes with Ajay’s, I have learnt the art of drawing, painting and sculpting with clay. Drawing rocks from the beach, completed my day. We had fun in the sun – thank you for new beginnings and discovering my unknown talent!”

Peter Schmidt: ” If you are looking for an experience to enhance your artistic desires – Ajay’s Painting Holiday is all you required. You are exposed to living your art dream. The holiday is also a gourmet experience.”

Gloria Bastos: “I found the course hugely inspirational! We were introduced to so many different techniques and media. I loved every minute of it and although I was very intimidated to start off with, I was able to keep up and had lots of individual attention that was useful to build up my confidence. A must for everyone, from beginners to accomplished artists. Fabulous!!!”

Wayne Attrill: “As a resident of Paternoster and having been through unpredictable times over the past two years, Sandy, my dearly loved wife, suggested I move back to what I love most and find my creative soul again and partake in Ajay’s art course. Thank you Ajay, the past week has been a motivation (or kick in the ass) to move for at least the next decade towards what one really loves and enjoys.

Kathy Kay: “A wonderfull experience – Thanks so very much!”

Hildegarde van Rensburg: “A great week of inspiration…”

Jenny Bodart: “An amazing holiday!! (I’m keeping it simple) Thanks so much”

John and Lorinda Martin: “It’s been absolutely wonderful!”

Adele Goosen: “Ek is verbaas hoe lekker en opwindend die teken en krap en smudge werk vir kuns. Dankie en definitief n moet.”

Theresa Strydom : “Het beslis geleer om teken makliker te maak. Baie dankie vir al die tips om gemengde media wys te raak.”

Sandra Botha: “Dankie Ajay dat jy ons kreatiwiteit ontsluit en aangewakker het. Dit was n ongeloof;like sewe dae van kleure en kossmake en natuurlik baie lag. Ek gaan nou terug met n vol emmer.”
