• NEW:  Year of the Rabbit & Valentines special celebration class.

  • After years of teaching, I have found that student success and enjoyment are keys to staying inspired and motivated.  Our classes are based on those factors: enjoyment, patience and kindness; and along the way students find others that love to paint.  Scroll down for our latest classes.
