I have been taking a weekly private lesson with Chris for the past few months. I enjoy my class so much and have learned a lot from Chris. She is very experienced, knowledgeable, personable, and patient. I do not have to panic whenever I made an unexpected mistake on the canvas as a beginner in oil painting as Chris will always have a way to let me make it right easily. She takes a flexible approach and makes sure the class is an enjoyable and relaxing experience in addition to learning the techniques. Overall, Chris is a great art teacher and I feel lucky to find her.

Victoria has hosted several painting parties at my house. Every time she comes we have a great time. She fits right in just like one of the girls. Her teaching technique makes even the most insecure beginner painter feel at ease. She is always fully prepared and on time. I cannot wait to have her again!

    Professional and smooth transition from start to finish. Contractual negotiation was fair, agreed upon in a written format and delivered on-time. Preview photographs and stages of piece were available throughout. Would highly recommend.

    I provide hourly or lesson-based tutoring and instruction for art, drawing, and/or painting. I'm willing to work for individual students or groups. I am also capable of teaching any-age students and of any skill level, from 3 years old to seniors. I also offer "wine and paint" classes for adults and "pizza and paint" sessions for groups, parties, or corporate events.


    We provide private painting lessons for artists of all levels and ages. Explore different mediums and techniques, color, composition, etc. People love the hands-on instruction that is geared toward their personal talent and creativity. We do intensive Encaustic (wax) painting workshops. Learn a variety of techniques, explore textures, and incorporate wax into other artwork. Portrait commissions. I work from photos and can paint single or multiple groups of people. I'm also available to do custom paintings of other subjects.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
