Learning Painting the Enjoyable Way
Julie Gilbert Pollard has always been fond of painting. Her business focuses on art instruction, as well as painting for galleries. Becoming an art instructor was never her dream until she was asked to teach at Cynthia's Art Asylum, helping other people to become better painters.
It's so satisfying when someone gets a new technique I've presented or a color theory suddenly makes sense. When they go on to put it all together into a painting they are happy with, it's a real thrill for me!
Julie passionately strives to be the best possible painter and instructor, ensuring that every aspect matches her aspirations and that of her customers. She has two categories of customers: buyers of paintings and art instruction, the key commonality being loyalty. Galleries maintain her presence and individual buyers are repeat customers; countless devoted students remain loyal. Local art students paint with her for years; she has a national following traveling to her workshops all over the U.S, and Italy, too.
My North Light books Brilliant Color (oil & acrylic) and Watercolor Unleashed (water-media to be released in March 2013) are high on the list, but my workshop at La Romita School of Art in Umbria, Italy in 2011 and scheduled again for June 2013 is on my mind at the moment!
Recently, her art and writings are being developed by the world's biggest art instruction publishing company into additional products that are commercially viable. Come paint with Julie, an art instructor who not only communicates effectively and clearly, but also makes learning more enjoyable.
