WHAT STUDENT'S HAVE SAID 

Cathy Roberts, Victoria, BC

"My good friend passed onto me one of Richard’s Watercolour painting newsletters and I decided to order some recordings (previously recorded classes) of a variety of paintings. I hadn’t painted for over 20 years but after a year of the covid pandemic I knew I needed to try painting again. I felt so much better, more relaxed and motivated and was painting more and more.

Richard is very positive with his feedback and wants you to enjoy yourself while painting. He is super organized and recordings come with the painting for you to print off or sketch, list of supplies needed, and downloading the recording is easy. I highly recommend buying a recording or joining one of Richard’s classes/workshops. Following Richard’s watercolour painting techniques has boosted my mental health and I have rediscovered my creativity and, best of all, I love it.  All thanks to Richard!"

Thank you Richard Wong for your zoom watercolour class today.  My son (11) thoroughly enjoyed it as did his friend. Looking forward to see what you offer next. Really glad you posted about the classes!  It’s opened up the world of watercolours."

"Richard Wong makes his paintings come alive in a simple, pleasing way.

The artist presents on-line classes that are thoughtful , unhurried and enjoyable.
I have admired  his elegant brush paintings for sometime and note that a part of his creativity
passes on to his students.

I look forward to more of Richard’s on-line classes."

Hi Richard! Thanks so much for the class! I liked it so much, my family has decided we are going to chip in for my mom to get paints and paper etc and pay for a few classes with you. Normally they’d be heading south but not this year (pandemic). So I figured, what a great way to have her do something creative, but also have my brother and sister too (for their kids to get on board as well).”

"Hi Richard!

I just wanted to say thanks so much to both you and to the Victoria Public Library for your wonderful watercolour class Songbirds and Sakuras. It was a wonderful way to celebrate Asian heritage together. You taught fun and interesting ways of using a Chinese paint brush and water bottle to achieve different effects. I appreciated this wonderful opportunity very much. "

"Great Victoria Public Library,

Thank you for sponsoring, “Songbirds & Sakuras” Workshop with Richard Wong to celebrate Asian Heritage Month. I thoroughly enjoyed  this wonderful workshop. Richard is a patient and knowledgable teacher who made this class fun, relaxing and timed at a comfortable pace to follow. Richard provided an art experience to enjoy both for experienced and beginner painters. Richard provided a supply list and an easy to trace image. What a fabulous way to celebrate Asian heritage, connect with others and enjoy a stress-free two hours of painting with Richard. Please continue to sponsor these wonderful art experiences for the community. I highly recommend Richard Wong as a watercolour teacher/presenter."
