Bonnie has been teaching my oldest son how to play the guitar for two years. He has learned so much from her. When he started playing the Baritone last year he didn't have any issues with reading the music thanks to his lessons with Bonnie. My youngest son is taking art lessons and gets better and better with each lesson. Bonnie is a very patient and fun teacher. She is also very encouraging.
Carol and her son did a great job at our company party! There was always a line of kids waiting for their faces to be painted and balloon animals. Carol's face painting was so beautiful that quite a few of us moms got our faces painted as well. :) We would definitely call Carol again for our next event.
What a wonderful experience! I was a little apprehensive when I signed up for an encaustic workshop with Bela Fidel in Scottsdale because it was a new thing for me and definitely outside my comfort zone. From the first moment, Bela made me feel completely comfortable. For someone with so much experience, she so open and masterful in sharing her expertise., even to a beginner. Her love for art, both the process and the experience of art, was always present during the workshop. The four days of the workshop were not just educational, but inspirational as well. I can't recommend Bela more highly-- she is one of a kind and was the perfect person to help me learn encaustic techniques and to help ignite my passion!
Recently, I purchased private watercolor lessons for my nieces 11th birthday from CJ. All of my correspondence with CJ before and after was always prompt and courteous. CJ even geared the lesson toward my nieces interests and abilities. We held the lesson at my nieces house. CJ arrived on time and was prepared with everything we needed. She was even flexible enough to stay an extra hour since the lesson was going so splendidly. My nieces inherit interest and natural talent really flourished with CJs instruction and examples. I would highly recommend CJ and look forward to future private lessons with her myself.
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!
Ron got right back to me and gave me a quote and even sent another message. I am now taking lessons from him and am having a great time. He is very patient and fun to work with. I learned so much in my first lesson!
I had a blast at the paint party Lisa put on for my sister-in-laws bachelorette party. Linda did such an amazing job keeping us all engaged and feeling "confident" with out painting. Even as a novice artist I thought my piece turned out great. Can't wait to do it again!

Excellent teacher - love her painting style
Marilyn Adams has been my 5-year-old sons art tutor for approximately 4 months. His art ability and appreciation for art has increased considerably. Sam was interested mainly in astronomy so Ms. Adams created a custom-matched program for him. He has been drawing/painting the planets, satellites, and galaxies and is doing amazingly well. He looks forward to her visits. Sam has been utilizing pencil, crayon and watercolor mediums and is becoming more adept at art all the time. Even though school has started, Ms. Adams is continuing her art classes with him, and we have found that art is a form of therapy for Sam as well. I highly recommend anyone (young or old) who wants to learn to draw or paint to take lessons from such a masterful artist as Ms. Adams. Nilanjana Jain 9/20/15

I am an experienced artist with bachelor of fine arts degree in painting from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. I have an expert drawing and painting skills. I have versatile styles including realistic and painterly (loose/impressionistic). By focusing on the building blocks of art, such as shape, negative space, contrast, value, light, warm and cool color, and color intensity, students of all levels can learn to express themselves in art and unleash their creativity.
