Student Testimonials:

"I have taken a few art lessons over the years, but have no formal training.  Every time I approached my easel I would dread the struggle and frustration that would come, because I was so confused.  I called Tina and arranged to take private lessons via the internet.  Seven months later I can hardly wait to get to the easel.  I have so much more confidence because I have had skill instruction.  I learned about drawing, values, color theory, how to mix paint, brush strokes, edges, composition, choosing the right materials, and especially, I learned to find the joy in my artwork.  These lessons were the best investment I have ever made."     — Marcy Roth, Arizona

"I enjoyed my individual lessons sooo much that I will be attending workshops and group lessons as soon as possible! Tina is a great teacher as well as a wonderfully talented artist. I feel so privileged that she generously shares her wealth of expertise, her comfortable space, and her inspiring passion for painting!"   — Dot Charest, Kansas

"Of all the workshops I have attended, I feel that this one made the largest and quickest influence in my work. At the end of day two, I felt that the small 4 inch section of a face I had done was the best work I've ever done! Thank you Tina, for your expertise, your generosity in sharing that with us and for your amazing heart"  — D.H., Texas

"Tina gave us valuable information, she made me feel like it was okay to not make a masterpiece during the workshop. I didn't even want to go to the restroom because I didn't want to miss anything!" — E.G., Missouri
