“Leone is behalve een allround Art Master ook een inspirerend persoon. Haar lessen zijn voor mij altijd een feestje!”

Els Taris


“Ik vind het een uitdaging om kleuren te mengen. Ik heb er een theorie over ontwikkeld en het is nu mijn favorite les onderwerp.”

de Stentor, David Levie.

Als je gevoel voor schilderen hebt is het een aanbeveling om de olieverf lessen bij Leone te volgen.
