Cheryl is a brilliant teacher. Her classes are very supportive and encouraging, and the other students are lovely people. Cheryl teaches all levels, and has a lot of knowledge and experience to share. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who wants to explore and expand their understanding of painting with watercolours.

Cheryl Did a great job helping my wife and progress beyond our current skillsets. My wife needed more help with her basics and getting comfortable with painting and I was ready for a little more advanced things. I would recommend Cheryl to anyone who is looking for good one on one or group painting lessons!

I was very impressed with the first of five watercolor class sessions. It was well organized and the venue was good. Cheryl is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of painting and art. The people in the class were very nice.

We hired her for face painting, and she was able to do Henna as well. Very friendly with all the kids, and was able to do special request designs. I will definitely be booking Creative Hands Studio again for our next party!

Nicole excels as a teacher. I took a 1 ½ hour adult drawing class. Nicole made me feel at ease from the moment I arrived. She is very encouraging and supportive. I felt like she was tailoring the class to fit my particular needs. She gives constructive feedback. I have taken a few drawing classes in the past but this was by far my favorite. I felt more productive than I did in other classes. The experience was fun and relaxing. I actually learned a lot of useful techniques in such a short length of time. I never tired. It would have been nice if I had the option of continuing on a bit longer. A workshop might enrich the learning experience.

I am taking private lessons from Nicole one day a week, learning basic drawing and color skills. She is very professional, patient, and I am learning a lot. I am very grateful for this opportunity, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Patrick is a wonderful art instructor! I have been taking oil painting instruction from him off and on over the past five years. His teaching manner is respectful towards the student. His art knowledge is vast. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking they would like to learn how to paint or improve on their skills. Patrick is professional in how he conducts his classes and he is also a wonderful and welcoming person.

He is mindful and responsive to the beginner student as well as to the advanced one. I have enjoyed participating in his painting classes while at the same time watching the quality of my oil painting improve. He points out ways I can improve that I would not have seen on my own!

Patrick has helped me become a much more accomplished artist.He is a truly professional artist and a great teacher.My art lessons on the past have never been this successful, because those teaching were poor instructors.

Ray was wonderful to work with. There were two projects. The first was drawing lessons for young want- to- be artists. As she worked with them on a still life, the girls recognized they could successfully draw. The second, much more ambitious project , was a mural on an outside adobe bread oven. 5 kids ranging in age from 3-13 drew up plans based on Greek Gods and then transformed the dome of the oven. A huge success.

Ray has been a close friend since the time we were children. She has always been, and will always be, the most creative person in the room. Her laughter is infectious, her thoughts wildly imaginative, and her kindness pervasive and consistent. Her work as an artist inspires me every time I interact with it. Folks would be lucky to have her in their life, no matter what the context!

I've had the privilege of visiting Ray Mack's studio and seeing her work in exhibitions, including the Seattle Art Fair, where her painting was the strongest work in the gallery. I've observed her teaching art and she is skilled at conveying concepts while at the same time being funny, warm and compassionate with students.

I wanted to take the time to express my sincere appreciation for Mr Edd Cox and the wonderful experiences me and my children have experienced in his studios classes. He truly has an ability to stimulate the imagination through his unique style of guiding others through the creativity process. The pieces of work that my children and their friends have created in his studio have stood the test of time on our shelves not just because they are great pieces of art but because the story behind them is timeless.....the story behind them was the experience with Edd and good times in a completely free environment that allowed us to explore whats inside us all....creative beings.

What? Only 5 Stars....? Surely Edd qualifies for more. He is an exceptional teacher, mentor, and motivator. Having mastered many artistic diciplines including oil and watercolor painting, pottery/ceramics, tile, computer graphic arts, and more, he finds new and creative ways to guide young and old in their quest to express themselves. He's a good listener and quickly finds the connections to best facilitate the release of your creative potential. He has years of experience working with young scholars in the public school system and seems to have the knack to engage them in very positive transformative ways. I just can't recommend Edd highly enough.

I took a 6 week oil painting workshop from Edd and learned a great deal, it really advanced my painting to the next level, the workshop was fun, interesting, easy to understand and went at just the right pace, I learned so many things that I never could have figured out on my own. He is an amazing artist and I am thrilled to learn his techniques. I would highly recommend him to all.

I absolutely loved working with Janet. I am a fairly shy person, and though I have the passion to try new things, I rarely have the courage to do so. My first few lessons, where scary for me, I could barely muster up the courage put my paintbrush on the paper, because I was terrified of "doing it wrong", or making a mistake. But Janet was so kind and loving, and very very patient with me. After just a couple lessons with her, I really felt comfortable and at peace. I really can't say enough good things about her! She's wonderful.

I've worked with Janet for 2 years one-on-one and I love it! I chose one-on-one because I had no art experience and was worried about judging myself against others. Janet provided a safe and encouraging environment where I found that I love art and I'm actually good at it!

Feed your soul! Time spent with art of any kind is therapy for the heart and soul. Tenth Muse Studio creates a relaxing, encouraging and stimulating environment to explore and create from Zentangle to painting to pottery. Its owner and creator, Heidi Jo Mafi, is competent and knowledgable while also nurturing and able to coax even the most hidden talents from those who spend time with her. Surrounded by tall trees in a beautiful, natural setting, it is without a doubt, on of my favorite places to spend time.

We take the entire family to paint at Tneth Muse studio. It's a great family night because Heidi takes care of everything - set up, clean up and everything in between. My older kids like doing more involved projects, while my 4 year old can choose a fun ceramic piece to glaze. We love Tenth Muse!

Mari and Leo are exceptional. We reached out to them when our studio opened to contemplate creating a mural together. From the very beginning, they were open-minded and engaged listeners. Mari kept me involved in all of their decisions, and they even designed a sketch that we talked through live to ensure we were on the same page. Though I didn't know how to express what I wanted in artist-lingo, I felt heard and understood the entire way. I asked Mari and Leo for a mural that would mimic the experience of "looking into nature." I also loved the idea of sacred geometry and a figure in meditation to center the piece around. What they created was seriously magical and somehow captured everything I desired and more. The depth and intention of the mural is incredible. It looks and feels organic, as if it had always been a part of the space. While Mari did the sacred geometry and figure design, Leo created this asymmetrical movement and depth across the entire mural that feels somewhat like a river flowing through a forest, but with elements of calligraphy and graffiti. So good. It definitely has the "looking into nature" feel; you can rest your eyes on it and engage with it for hours. I highly recommend these two. In fact, we hope they will be our mural artists moving forward with any other studios we open.

Mari was a wonderful addition to our event. We hired her to live paint during a charity event and used the painting as an auction item. Her work was extraordinary and everyone walking by wanted to be THE ONE to get to take her work home. I look forward to working with Mari again in the future.

Mari painted an incredibly beautiful mountain scape mural in our soon to be born son's bedroom.

I have been taking lessons from her since 2011. I started as a complete novice, no prior experience in painting or any systematic art training. She emphasizes the importance of values, and, once a student masters it, moves onto other aspects of paintings: key, temperature, hue, composition, etc. She wouldn't be giving you a lip service, she would give you a real fundamental training, and beyond if you wish to continue. I feel extremely lucky that I met her, for that I could not afford going to full time atelier or university. If you want to build a solid foundation, I highly recommend her.

I had the opportunity to tour Sandra Power studio and weekend class. She would be an excellent teacher and I wish I had a schedule that would allow me to participate in her training. I was impressed by the set up she creates for her students one day a week . Unfortunately I am unable to commit to this time frame.

About

If you want to learn the fundamentals or just a different style of art, Open Studio is a great place to start. Not only will you find the beauty in art, but you will find the artist in you. Everyone is at different skill levels, and that is why Open Studio is an easy way to start or continue your education in art. If you are the artist who has been self-teaching but does not know what to do as the next step, Open Studio is great, because it offers different teaching styles and methods to further your existing skills. I am a painter with a love for storytelling. I also have a background in several disciplines, such as painting, drawing, photography, and editing. For examples and a portfolio, please see contact via my website. My pieces have been displayed in the University Annex, University Gallery and Karen Hille Phillips Gallery, and I will display in the Arterie Gallery.

About

Studio Broadway is a small and private art studio with a casual environment, situated on a small farm just outside of beautiful Historic Snohomish, WA. It is located 35 minutes north of Seattle, a couple miles north of FlowerWorld & Maltby Cafe. If your children are taking classes, this excellent place lets you enjoy walking the many amazing restaurants and shops, while your child is having a great time creating art and crafts projects! We will complete many fun arts and crafts projects with our hands-on classes, and at the same time, learn new skills and make new friends! They will experience various facets of art, which include: acrylics, watercolor, collage, plaster art, and mosaic. Developing artistic skills provides your child the ability to express themselves outside the box, which is exceptionally important to their development. As many public schools no longer provide or provide art classes, my services are even more important, as I feel each child should have the chance to enjoy, create and explore their artistic side! I also offer adult art lessons and classes. Come and enjoy an evening of "Watercolor & Wine" with my small group of women who like to explore their artistic side over a glass of vino, or need private lessons. I offer those, too! We also provide Girl Scout Art Badge programs! I can come to your location as well. This is great for daycares, play groups, schools etc. Available by appointment and registration only.
