Some of the smaller places you will see mentioned in guide books and advertised locally are extremely informal, with classes in a family environment. On some occasions it may be difficult to contact them by phone as they are actual Ubud locals with many family / ceremonial duties. The larger places will always have English speaking staff who can answer questions over the phone. Travelers on a RTW trip often get ‘road weary’. living out of a backpack, endless guest houses and cheap meals, planes, buses and taxis. An art course in Ubud may be the perfect answer the to the road blues.
