Beginner – Intermediate Painting Classes

I love teaching new painters the basics as much as I love encouraging and advising more seasoned artists.

With years as an athletic coach, professional artist, and homeschooling mom of four kids,
I can work with all learning styles and enjoy figuring out the best ways to communicate a new concept.




So, whether you are completely new to painting or you’re looking to build on knowledge you already have,
my classes are perfect for you if:

  • You’ve dreamed of learning to paint for years—and finally have time after raising your kids.
  • You’re a seasoned painter who wants to develop confidence and motivation or refresh your skills.
  • You’re curious to learn about value, composition and color.
  • You want to hang out with a wonderful group of fellow artists.


“You are such a good teacher and very
engaging. I liked how you used a multimedia
approach: verbal, demos, hands-on, and good
feedback and a very gracious hostess!”

“I loved the class. I am such a beginner. You did a
great job of starting me with some basics. Thank
you for being so patient and helpful. Greatly
appreciated! Thank you for the wonderful lunch
yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed myself!”

Upcoming Beginner – Intermediate Painting Classes


I hold a group meeting in my studio to paint every other Thursday, (it’s so fun! and I’m happy to report that class is full!). I am still scheduling summer or fall classes at my studio and at Village Art Gallery. Are you interested in a class? I’d love to hear from you. Please email me and let me know the following:

What are you looking for? An evening? Afternoon? Morning? Weekend? How many days? What topics would you like covered?
