Delightful, talented artist.Feb 15, 2017Verified
Kathie is an amazing teacher. She works patiently with each student to incorporate the student's likes and dislikes as well as the student's painting style and personality. She creates space for creativity and imagination without enforcing her style techniques. She creates a fun learning atmosphere coupled with upbeat background music. I really enjoy my adult acrylic painting classes each week to learn new textures and painting techniques.Apr 11, 2014VerifiedKathie K.'s reply
Thanks so much for being in the class. I love to teach and see the growth each painting you have completed. It is an adventure for me and I enjoy see you grow and trying new painting directions. Thanks for the review. Kathie
I joined the adult painting lessons with Kathie Kelly. She provides a warm, welcoming atmosphere. I have only been to one class so far but found it to be very informative and I look forward to my next class with Kathie!Jun 6, 2013Verified
Kathie is a lovely lady and I am delighted to begin taking her art classes this very Friday! Plus my son is going to her Tuesday evening adult class too. Thank you Thumbtack for facilitating.Oct 8, 2015Verified
Kathie was great at giving perfect amount of guidance. Enough info to learn and still enough space for creative expression. I am a total beginner. She was so helpful. She had others in class that clearly were very accomplished in their painting and Kathie worked beautifully with them as well. No matter what level skill Kathie is a wonderful instructor. THANKS KATHIE!!Aug 16, 2014Verified
