Ancient Thai Illustrations with Kanokwan was absolutely delightful! It was a fun activity resulting in some beautiful drawings. It gave me new ideas for my own artwork. Kanokwan was a lovely, patient instructor and gave very clear directions. She was also personable and wonderful to converse with.

We booked this event for a team corporate event. Everyone had fun learning the intricate Thai motif. This event, however, doesn't require much interactions among the participants. But i'm sure the host could arrange this if we had asked before hand. The host went extra miles and drew a special Thai pattern for us to celebrate a specific member in our team.

Perfect for those who likes to create art with "precision". Kanokwan is very friendly and very patient in explaining all the different steps in great details. After creating these patterns hands on, I gained new perspective when she shared a glimpse of Thai art scene and artists.

参加者ひとりでマンツーマンとなりちょっと緊張しましたが、雑談をしながらのんびりと教えてもらいました。私の英語力が拙く理解できなかったところもあるかもしれませんが、彼女が画面共有をしてくれるのを同じようにガイドラインを描き、なぞっていけば美しいタイアートのモチーフを3つ完成できる流れです。簡単でリラックスできる楽しい講座です。お子さんでもOK!

I’m an Airbnb Online Experience junkie with a preference for art classes. Kanokwan has designed an excellent class. What she does better than any of the art classes I have taken is the intentional progression of incorporating a simpler design into a more complex. It is methodical without being too rigid. My 7 year old daughter and I both ended up being able to go through all the steps and not only created some beauty, but feel confident in being able to recreate it on our own. Five Stars! Thank you!
