Lindsay is an artist who loves this city, and has created workshops that give an insider's view of Saigon to visitors and residents. She is an excellent teacher who guides the participants to be successful without being heavy-handed. Everyone left feeling like they learned a new skill, and they had a two successful works that also doubled as mementos of Sài Gòn. The space she chose to hold the workshop was a fantastic rooftop spot that I will continue to visit. If you are looking to build your art skills, or just want to spend an afternoon doing something that is not your average tourist attraction, sign up and get ready for an awesome experience. I was so into the retreat that I forgot to take photos! Search Saigon Art Retreats on Facebook.

Lindsey taught us a class in watercolors at a very nice cafe that turned out to be just down the street where we live. the class was very relaxed and very personal to each one of our needs. Lindsey showed us what we needed to know then let us play. we had enough time to complete two pieces of artwork in the time allotted. all smiles when leaving we felt like we had been friends for years. well worth the time if you are in Siagon and want to try something different. give Lindsey an email and set up your private watercolor painting class today! don't wait book it today!

A friend and I were traveling through Ho Chi Mihn City and found this company which offers painting classes. We had a wonderful instructor who taught us how to use watercolor paints for the first time. Our instructor had previously sketched 2 beautiful Vietnamese scenes on postcard sized paper that we used to paint on. We learned several techniques in 2 hours and had a great time painting. We highly recommend it! You don't have to be an artist to get beautiful art work!

We met up with Lindsay (at a time convenient to us- loved the flexibility) in a beautiful little cafe in District 5. As my friend and I had both painted before, Lindsay allowed us to move at a pace that we were comfortable with. She taught us new and exciting things and we were able to create beautiful pieces of art work. I highly recommend this. Was such a lovely morning to sit in a beautiful cafe and paint. Highly recommend!

I am an artist myself but really want to learn more from others so i visited the workshop. This time i was held in a cafe where was quite nice. The group was really cool doing their choices of paitnting for postcards, portrait, or even the memory from their dreams. Lindsay provided everything so i didn't have to carry my art suplies with me that was really convenient for everyone. I love the idea of sharing and gathering, and Lindsay indeed gave many good tips for doing water color painting! At the end, we're all done our artworks happily and had the courage to keep paiting. Thanks a lot!
