"I took the class to support VisArts in their effort to go online with their classes. I did not expect to have a great learning experience because I could not imagine a studio art class online. As it turned out, there were so many extras in this class – the videos, the FB postings, the handouts – that the overall learning was very rich and full, especially for a five-week class.”

"Just wanted to let you know that Tuesday's class more than met my expectations ... i learned more in two hours with you than in a previous 10-week course. Thanks for being prepared with a plan to teach starting at A.

Also, thanks for the "book". I read it thru last night and now have a good idea where we are going, altho am not at all clear about some of it. But i appreciate having the "guide/reference" of the book - and a place to take notes."

"As a beginner, I especially appreciated the way you explained and demonstrated the steps for foundational techniques. Your ready willingness to answer questions – often with a demo on the spot – made the difference time and again. I’ll be sure to keep all the great takeaway tools and resources handy!"

Julia S. Vis Arts Introduction to Watercolor



“This artist actually teaches, and provided a wealth of information in various forms. She was kind and encouraging, but willing to talk with you about things that "don't quite work."
