My granddaughter and I really enjoyed our class with Ingvild. She is a warm and engaging person who is able to make a class interesting and fun for an older adult and a pre-teen at the same time. We learned a lot and had a good time doing it. Thank you, Ingvild!

The class was lovely and the instructor, Ingvild had a welcoming and warm disposition that made me feel right at home. My only feedback would’ve been that some background music might’ve been a nice touch as a way to fill some the natural silence that occurs when you are creating.

It is absurd that this woman is charging money for this class. I went with my mom and siblings to this class and we were all shocked by the experience. There was absolutely no guidance and “Vedic art” seems to be completely made up. I was really hopeful after reading the positive reviews of this class but I was disappointed. We started by doodling on a piece of paper to follow our “instincts” and she told us to “go for it” and paint. She sat and doodled on a piece of paper for two hours while we painted. Thankfully we all had previous painting experience and were familiar with the materials. When my sister in law tried to ask a question about the other principles of Vedic art she refused to share them with us. The entire experience was incredibly strange.
