About Pam Miller Designs

I have over 30 years of experience in teaching acrylic painting and jewelry making and about 7 years in instructing polymer clay classes. I currently teach Fine Arts painting classes for beginners at the Peoria and Bloomington Michaels stores. I teach jewelry making at the Peoria Michaels and polymer clay classes at another location.

Contact me for information. My fees vary. I also accept commissioned work, sell my art and jewelry, and I love doing portraits and especially murals in businesses and private homes.

I'm certified to teach painting and jewelry making. I am president of the Central Illinois Polymer Clay Guild (join our Yahoo group) and secretary for the Washington Fine Arts Society.

I love all kinds of creating and teaching others to realize their potential. Join my painting class mailing list on my site for class information.

    Pam gives a very relaxing class. She explains and demonstrates techniques in a way that anyone can understand. She is helpful to each student, answering questions and guiding them through any difficult areas in the painting.

    Pam is a wonderful teacher. It's very apparent she enjoys teaching and sharing her knowledge with her students. I have taken painting classes.
    Would like to see more classes offered in other areas.

    i went to my very first painting class at michaels in peoria and Pam was the teacher. i have to say that at first i was quite intimidated bc everyone else in the class was older and experienced looking. but honestly she was an amazing teacher, she helped me out and got me everything i needed and did so with a very gentle, motherlike tone. she took me through everything step by step and i have to say the painting i did was acually really good! thanks, Pam!

    Her classes are always fun and relaxed. She makes the time to help with something you might not 'get' right away and never makes you feel less because you don't get it right away. I love her classes and teaching style.

    I had no experience at all and Pam taught me how to create acrylic paintings that I am pretty proud of!!!!

    Don't hesitate to take Pam's classes!!! She knows her stuff. Her paintings and murals are awesome. I've seen her murals and they look 3-D and so real. Pam's jewelry is the prettiest I've seen and I even have some. *smile* Her jewelry is quality product and quality made, as is her polymer clay creations.

    As a teacher, you couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable, friendly gal. She wants you to learn what she knows. She's "user friendly" and the BEST! She has patience and the time it takes to teach you!

    Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, Pam expertise is unlimited!!!

    I have always wanted to try painting. After taking a couple of Pam's classes, I realized how much I enjoyed it. I am now painting all the time. Can't wait to see what she's painting next. I look forward to getting her e-mail.

    Pam is one of the most caring and kindest ladies I have been Blessed enough to meet on line. Due to health problems I have not been able to make it to one of Pam's classes as of yet. But she is so sweet to wish me well and very encouraging. I will be so glad when I finally get to attend her class and witness her artistic talent first hand.
    Patiently waiting, Peggy

    My daughter and I took polymer clay classes for over a year with Pam. It was so much fun and Pam makes it doable for everyone. She has the patience and skills that come with all great teachers!

    Pam is such a great teacher. Whether it's her jewelry classes, polymer clay or painting I have learned so much from her in such a fun way. Details about the products themselves and tricks on how you can use them in new ways always makes her classes fun and exciting. Keep up the good work and see ya soon!

    I have taken Pam's classes for several years and have always had fun and learned something new about painting. She is very informative and does everything really well with alot of detail which makes every project POP! I have also seen and bought several clay pieces and am always amazed with her projects. Pam is a great teacher for the new and experienced, both, and I would highly recommend her!

    Have taken several classes with Pam at Michaels. Her finishing details make her paintings really come "alive", and help a beginner like me to have a better finished painting.

    Pam is a multi-talented artist. We share a love of polymer clay, and I have taken several classes from her. It is always fun and inspiring. I am always in awe of what she can do!!

    While I'm too far away to take Pam's classes (I'm in MD) I LOVE the packets Pam has on her website and have bought many. Her work is gorgeous and the instructions to all her packets and patterns are always clear and easy to follow. She's a great teacher and has shared much of herself over the years. Just wish I was closer because I'd be in the front row in a heartbeat!
