Workshop Testimonials

A well prepared and informative workshop. Marianne is one of the best teachers we have had to date.

Jan Bennett

Marianne’s workshop was thoroughly worthwhile. I travelled from Tampa to take her class and really learned a lot and enjoyed it. I found Marianne’s tutorials excellent. She shares her techniques and tips freely and is generous with the time she takes to explain each step. This makes it so much easier to go and paint our projects. Throughout the day Marianne goes around to each course participant and gives individual instruction. You will never get stuck waiting for what to do next.


You are a first class lady, a warm, caring woman and well-respected artist and teacher. I deeply appreciate your kindness and consideration. Thank you very much.

Marianne is a very stimulating teacher with much knowledge experience and patience. She circulates the classroom in a steady basis monitoring which student requires her assistance.

Marianne was a fabulous instructor – the best I’ve had in four watercolour courses I’ve taken. The lessons were rich in techniques and provided something for students at all skill levels. I learned so much and it was fun! Thanks very much.

As a novice painter in acrylics, I truly appreciated the step by step approach you presented. First it was selecting from a choice of photographs and your recommendations on cropping/design etc to fit the canvas and then it was helping a “non drawer” like me to work on a grid method to transfer it to the canvas.

When it came to colour choice, if I didn’t have the right paint colour you were always able to advise on “what to mix with what” to try and work it out. Mostly I liked the demonstrations and then the opportunity to practice what we had observed. Even though we were working on the same flower, we as students chose different variations and you provided one on one feedback to each of us.

Although your style of teaching is demonstration and practice, you always encourage painters, (at all levels of expertise) to find their own niche. And may I add, your attention to detail is phenomenal.

Marianne is an incredibly talented teacher with tons of knowledge. She is generous in teaching us her techniques and tricks on watercolour painting. Her pink peonies is a masterpiece that just happens in front of your eyes. That is why I travel this far from Calgary to take her workshop. Her workshop is over and above expectation.

Marianne Broome is a beautiful lady, extremely talented artist, and an excellent teacher. I have taken a few of her watercolour workshops and was very pleased with her teaching methods, her gentle, quiet manner, and sense of humour. The final results of the paintings were always pleasing.

I wanted to let you know that the EGGA members and myself loved your acrylic workshop on the iris. The feedback I received was excellent!  The group found you to be very knowledgeable and creative, informative and fun.
