Wonderful experience with a fantastic teacher!!! Lai Thai drawing is a magical way to understand not just art, architecture and patterns from Thailand but from Asia in general. Kanokwan (Typhoon) is an expertise with a lot of patience and warm welcome. She is a great teacher and it is easy to follow the class, exercices and infomation about the culture. My drawings are incledible beautiful, thanks to her:) She explained all the steps so clearly that even very young participants could follow her easily. Her artwork is a dream and honestly I cannot recommend enough how fantastic it was. Thank you:)!!

I joined this with a friend and we really enjoy Kanokwan's description of this art style and its history. The instructions were pretty easy to follow, and now I have a new style of drawing that I can enjoy!
