I just returned from a week of watercolor painting with Tess and it was a wonderful experience. This was my third class with her in Provence. The house she rented for us was great, with a swimming pool, and plenty of room for the 4 of us. The Roussillon area is spectacular and there were so many places from which to choose to paint. We decided on several poppy fields and of course in Roussillon with all its beautiful colors. Tess presents her class as learning to paint in watercolor but it is so much more. I made new friends, had some French instruction, and ate some of the most delicious food (and wine) I have ever had, thanks to Tess and our wonderful cook Ruth. I highly recommend taking one of Tessa’s classes in Provence, and if she ever comes to the US, I believe she will have success there as well. I look forward to my next visit! Merci, Tessa! – Meiling
