"I've been taking art classes with Kathy about 10 years, starting out in her evening drawing class for non-artists. She was so knowledgeable and encouraging that I moved on to charcoal and painting classes at her studio and have been there ever since. I learn something new from her at every class and my painting have improved immeasurably. People even ask me now if my paintings are for sale! Besides learning technique and improving all the time, I've discovered that painting is a great way of 'meditating' or stress reduction for me. That's a huge benefit for me, with my busy life, and a great value at any price. Thanks, Kathy!" - Kerry
"As a child, I had always wanted to see something of mine out for the public to see. I had hoped to be an architect. That never happened. I was approaching middle age and I had a decision to make. Buy a corvette or take an art class. I chose the art class; it was also cheaper too! Kathy was my art teacher. Her gentle encouragement and her experience as an artist helped slowly build my confidence. She can be firm but the overall outcome is to make us better artists. Also there is never a dull moment in her classes. I am glad they never tape our conversations!! I have sold my first painting which I never thought possible. Kathy encourages me to do more difficult paintings though I never sure I am ready. My hope one day is to have my own showing. I thank Kathy for being along this journey with me. I think I made the right decision...not to buy the corvette." - Peter
"My friends and family are amazed to discover an artist in their midst. In just six months under Kathy’s guidance, I have developed from a novice who didn’t know how to hold a paintbrush or mix colors, to a student artist with a solid grounding in the basics and the confidence to paint with pleasure. (You can always paint over it!) Painting class is the highlight of my week, and it is always filled with laughter and gentle lessons." - Elizabeth
I'd like to dedicate this site to my teachers: King Coffin, Mr. Foster, my 3D professor (I can't remember his name), Blair McClosky, Liza Meade Steig and Helen Van Wyk. These were the teachers who inspired me to learn. When I began to teach - my dream was to be a teacher like them.
