“A random morning searching for Bay Area art classes led me to the magical Jen Tough Gallery and its workshop offerings. I am so very grateful it did. . . I feel as if I stumbled into a world of welcome, beauty and a very large feast of tools and technique.

The class was bursting with demos and teachings that I shall be practicing and digesting for sometime. The space was lovely - filled with light, spaciousness, and a great individual work space layout. All the gallery individuals whom I came into contact with were warm, welcoming, open and available. I am eager to return.”

“The entire experience was wonderful. Loved the courtyard access and outdoor lunches. Diane and Chuck are exceptional instructors. Thank you so much!!!"

The atmosphere was just as accommodating. From the atmosphere to the final critique, this workshop has left a lasting impression.”
