We are open year round. We offer special workshops in drawing, pastel and oil painting in the summer, in addition to our intro to art classes for beginning students. I insist on limiting class size to ten students. This allows me to get to know each student and to work with each one in a way many teachers cannot. I have always strived to make the school a friendly environment where the students are encouraged to test their talent and challenge their imagination. It is important for students to learn the techniques of drawing, painting, sculpture, etc. But it is more important that they have found a way to express their unique view of the world. My students are at all different ages and skill levels. Their love of art and their courage to try new techniques unite them. I am honored to be their teacher.
