“I had the opportunity to join Leonie at a 5-star weekend getaway at Angala Boutique Hotel for a Portrait Painting workshop. Here she taught us a special recipe using just four earthy colours. I was amazed that in no time without much effort a portrait appeared! With this technique one really does not even have to draw the face first exactly in pencil, placing the dark, light, warm and cold in the right places, the picture just magically appears. Exceptional!”


“Leonie teaches a complete art curriculum that starts you off with the absolute, and fundamental basics, and takes you all the way through to becoming a professional artist. I can tell you that my eyes have been opened in new ways, to see more clearly. Being in class with others at different stages, you learn via " osmosis" just by watching Leonie teach, demonstrate or encourage others. One of those " Leonie sayings" that has impacted me has been..." it doesn't have to be perfect, it's art, not a photograph!"”


“If you want to rekindle or explore your creative side, I highly recommend that you contact Leonie at Lifeart School and Academy. Leonie offers short courses as well as weekly art classes. She is an absolutely amazing teacher as well as a very talented artist. I have attended some of the short courses and will definitely do so in the near future again. ”
