Pauline Gibbs, November 2018
"I was fortunate enough to spend a day with Jane, whose work I have admired for many years. I have been dabbling with various mediums, styles for many years but felt the need for some direction. Jane’s overriding advice is to find something you are passionate about and to keep exploring this, be organised and methodical in your approach and practice. Jane is very generous in sharing techniques she has developed over time. The process I followed, alongside Jane was lots of fun using new materials, observing and incorporating techniques, evaluation of the work progressing and adding the final touches to make the work come together. Inclusive is a checklist entitled “what makes a good painting”, as well as materials required, and information to inspire, challenge and reflect on. I would really recommend the one on one experience."
Kerry Guise, Wanaka, August 2018
"A day with Jane...it was so much fun, plenty of good laughs, lots of learning, totally out of my comfort zone, supportive, creative and explorative. With Jane's guidance and positivity, I felt I could achieve anything. Thank you for an amazing day Jane."
Judy Pollard, July 2018
"Jane has reignited my exploration for painting; with generous sharing of her painting techniques, theoretical knowledge and life experiences of the art world. I thoroughly recommend Jane as a teacher/tutor whether you're new painting or experienced, it doesn't hurt to learning new things."
Antoinette Beck, Taupo, 2017
"I would describe both Jane's painting style and personality as Original, Colourful and Experimental. She imparts her knowledge and demonstrates her techniques in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Jane has shown me a whole new way of using oils and given me the direction I was seeking, I can't wait to put it into practice!"
Lynda Hensman, Queenstown, 2017
"Jane Kellahan workshops will leave you inspired and ready to take your art to a new level. Professional yet fun, I gained so much knowledge on using different techniques as well as applications. Money and time well spent, I certainly will be booking another workshop later in the year. Motivational and Inspirational. Thanks Jane"
Karen Wiggin, Kapiti
"Jane gave me the courage and techniques to raise my paintings to a whole new level. Her workshop was inspirational and her tutoring style was fabulous. The two day private workshop left me feeling elated and eager to continue my painting journey. I now have two fantastic works on my wall at home."
Jenny Davis, Whakatane
"I recently had a two day, private painting course with Jane Kellahan and found the whole experience uplifting. Jane was very generous with sharing her knowledge, techniques and expertise. She was also a valuable critic, which was always delivered in a positive way. I really felt a great sense of achievement and confidence to carry on developing my new skills. Thank you Jane!"
Joyce Stretton, Wellington
"During the last four years I have attended a number of art workshops. Jane's by far, was the most organised, stimulating, exciting and enjoyable course. Leaving the result to the process we followed was so liberating. I could reel off lines of superlatives about this workshop, this would be meaningless except that in the past, one of my professional duties was assessing teacher's lessons. I'd give Jane's an 'excellent'. I hope to attend another one."
Jenny Davis, Whakatane
"I booked into Jane's group workshop because I have always admired her paintings and I went along, that first morning, feeling very nervous and apprehensive. But, I needn't have worried -Jane was so positive and encouraging. Also, she was very generous with her talent and techniques and I loved the whole weekend experience. I had never used oils before, but Jane gave me confidence to try something new. One painting I did has been much admired and I have had many offers to buy it! On the strength of that experience, I have booked into another workshop."
Jan Fry, Wellington
"I had such an enjoyable two days taking part in the Art Workshop. The atmosphere was very relaxing, great music, and only 12 in the class kept it intimate and friendly. There was plenty of interaction between each other as well as with Jane. I thought it very good value, all materials provided and wine. I now feel well equipped to take my painting to a higher level, and am very motivated after spending this time with Jane, whose work I have long admired."
Fiona Harrington, Wellington
"The workshops are a great way to begin thinking in a different way. We experimented with a chosen palette and a range of tools which many of us had not used before. This was a good way to explore different effects and colour mixing. The quality of the materials were excellent which was quiet refreshing. Jane's approach was both encouraging and helpful. You leave feeling inspired."
