Beauty is all around us...  Such scope for the imagination!

The Following pictures are 'samples' of various mediums in which my students work:

ACRYLICS:  Often referred to as the offspring of Oils and Watercolor, Acrylics promise to give you a wonderful variety of techniques to use; from full bodied textural effects to lovely, soft glazing.  Learning this medium is sure to give you loads of enjoyment, and Classes are on-going, so you can join in any time.  Choose Acrylics and you won't be disappointed! 

Contact me to find out how you can become involved.

DRAWING  for Beginners

The first lines are always the hardest to draw, but with time and guided practice, it gets easier to create the image you have in mind.  Art is all about transfering what you 'see' in your mind's eye, to a surface.  Drawing takes the least amount of effort. 

So, If you think you can't draw a straight line, That's good...  Straight lines are done with a ruler anyway!


Contact me to find out how you can become involved.


The right amount of Water and Pigment is the 'trick' in painting with Watercolors, and it won't take you long to discover the pleasures of this wonderful and versitile medium.  Interested? Contact me!



A most convenient medium,  a colored pencil, which can 'flow' with the touch of a wet brush, can stimulate your imagination!  Picture yourself on holidays: you can carry your colors and 1 brush, and have the artistic world at your fingertips!

Classes in Watercolor Pencil are also on-going, and you can sign up at any time.  Contact me.


Often referred to as a children's oil crayon, OIL PASTELS can be as expressive as any Oil Painting, with a wide range of colors and qualities available for the descerning artist.  If you have a set of Oil Pastels in your supplies, but don't know what to do with them, this type of class is good for you!  Contact me
