That depends on how much time & effort you put into painting between lessons.

You bring your work each time you come. I'll answer all your questions...show you why
and what to do differently if your results didn't please you.

of lessons or any frequency. The choice is yours.

Did someone you trusted discourage your early
Did they tell you that you had no talent? You
believed them and tried to forget your dream of being an artist. But perhaps that dream
still lives within your heart. Do you secretly wonder whether you could still learn
to paint--EVEN if you have no talent.
(...it IS possible that the "no talent"
assessment was wrong, but that is a different issue.)
Rest assured that talent is insignificant next to
the DESIRE to paint. Painting comes from the heart.
ANYONE can learn to paint if these 3 important
elements are present:
A real desire to learn is the most important
A patient teacher is almost as essential.
Time spent practicing/painting is the third essential
Looking at art is healing...the process of making
art is even more so.
Anyone can experience great joy through "playing" with paint.
The quiet painting process reduces stress.
It is used in hospitals to aid healing.
Psychologists recommend it to reduce stress.
Producing a painting anyone else likes is NOT
necessary, although you will probably be surprised at how much your family & friends
will like your paintings if you choose to share them.
Many of my private students are women who
have raised their children and now deserve to focus on themselves. And still "family
demands" continue to claim their time. Rest assured that I realize how precious our
time together is. I promise to teach you as much of what you want to know as I possibly
can in the time we are together. I will help you find ways to incorporate your art into
your daily life, without ignoring your "duties." And you will see your paintings
Other students are:
Individuals who travel and
cannot commit to regular weekly classes
individuals who have freedom to arrange their day
Are you ready to take action to realize your
dream of painting?
Call me at 281-330-3827 to arrange your FIRST
private class. Our time together will focus on you and what you want to learn. You will be
pleased at how much I can teach you in just a few lessons. You will have fun, reduce
stress, and explore a new window into your creative self. The cost is surprisingly
affordable. I supply all of the materials for your first class. If you decide to continue,
I will help you choose the supplies you need.
We will use watercolor or acrylic paint. You may
choose which you prefer. You may even try both to experience the difference. Both are
odorless and non-toxic. Both dry quickly. Clean-up is easy with soap and water. I provide
supplies for your first class.
If you painted long ago, but fear you have forgotten
what you knew, you might be pleasantly surprised at how much you would remember with only
a few lessons.
If you have unfinished paintings from a workshop you
took--and not knowing how to finish them has caused you to lose your confidence--I can
help you finish the paintings, even if the reference material has been lost.
If you stopped painting when family duties claimed
your time and now you are having difficulty starting again, a few private classes can help
you reconnect with your lost creativity.
Every human is creative. Anyone can learn to paint
for enjoyment. The tangible reward is being able to adorn your home with your very own
paintings. The intangible rewards are much greater.
...and it's fun!
I look forward to helping you realize your creative
The more you paint, the more confident you will
become. I teach to share knowledge and empower my students. I'll teach you what you need
to know in order to be able to paint by yourself for enjoyment. You'll be pleasantly
surprised at how quickly you will learn with my personal help.
I do not know anyone who has learned to paint from a
book, although once you can paint, you can learn techniques from a good instruction book.
(Ironically, the better you can paint, the more you can learn from a book. So don't
discard the book...Once you learn the basics of painting, the books you've bought can
expand your knowledge.
P. P. S. If you want to create a special painting
for your own home, I can help you design the painting and begin it. You will leave class
knowing how to continue on your painting. When you need more help, another lesson can give
you the information necessary for you to continue. A beginner should not expect to create
a painting that looks like it was done by someone with years of experience. But the fact
that it is yours counts for a lot. If you are NOT happy with the end result, schedule
another class and bring your painting. I will help you decide what it needs and I will
help you FIX it. You will learn by doing.
