  1. Creative Heaven!


    I make no secret of the fact that I am a massive fan of everything Anita has done in the SketchUp Hub so far. I am so pleased to say that this new course has exceeded expectations in terms of ease of understanding, creativity and fun! Anita’s signature short video tutorial style means that it is easy to follow along and to learn at your own pace.

    This course embraces all the Hub’s values – in that it is so well written and put together. It empowers students to complete mood boards to a very high standard that isn’t always seen in the interior design industry. Why settle for anything less than a crisp precise and visually pleasing piece of work?

    Here is everything you have ever needed to create a stunning mood board with which to wow your clients; I mean if they can see that you can produce something to this standard then they will feel safe in your hands.

    I started this course with very minimal knowledge of Photoshop, yet I was soon able to import images, move things around, change sizes, create borders & boxes, frames & shadows. Not only that, I learned how to change the colour of images of furniture items; all this in one afternoon!

    The lessons given in this course are worth waaaaay more than the price of the course, and if you are going to use these skills in your day to day work I think this course would pay for itself in no time at all. Just buy it – you won’t regret it!

  2. Can't rate highly enough!


    I got so much from this course since it covers both Canva & Photoshop. Taught clearly and concisely and such high quality mood boards are made at the end of it.

  3. MoodBoard


    Excellent course. Struggled to understand Photoshop and SketchUp through U-Tube videos, but by taking Anita’s courses in SketchUp, Canva and Photoshop it’s all starting to make sense. Instructions are clear, she has a way of teaching that makes sense and simple to follow. Would definitely consider taking any of the courses and I’ll be signing up for more courses whilst working my way through the KLC course.

    Moodboard course was so easy to understand and the results speak for themselves. Sign up!!


  4. Photoshop and Canva!


    Full marks to Anita for these clear, understandable and easy courses to follow. I have grown so much with your support and step by step guide. U-tube and other videos I watched confused me and wasted many of my hours. So if you are looking to learn and expand your knowledge with Sketchup Hub you are in the RIGHT place! Good Luck!
