What People Are Saying

Thank you Dionne for giving me the confidence to try it and just see what happens! It’s just paint right?? Thanks Dionne for sharing so much knowledge and experience with all of us, I am SO GRATEFUL for your openness and kindness!

What People Are Saying

I went to Courage on Canvas determined I was going to do something outside of my comfort zone. To be able to meet the women I only knew from FB group made everything so much more tangible and attainable, my words can’t express the warmth and community that was there – realness and acceptance!

What People Are Saying

I am positive there are at least a million little stories that could be told about our time in Galveston. But I want to tell you all one special story, one that fills my heart and that makes me feel so special that I don’t think I will ever be able to thank her enough for the kind and beautiful gesture she showed me.

What People Are Saying

I enjoyed the class so much and also your attention to your viewers. You painted such a lovely piece, it was so nice to see how the scene evolved from start to finish. Another virtual class will be awesome.
