Come Paint with Me

I offer art classes in and around Montrose. I teach art through Weehawken Creative Arts, Montrose Center for the Arts, Mosaic Montrose, and San Juan Brews. I believe that everyone is an artist at heart and my mission is to make art accessible and enjoyable  for all ages.
I approach each class with the desire to inspire and inform, while creating a platform for you to express your creativity. Art is not "one size fits all" or stagnant, but it is a way for each individual to find what speaks to them. 
My classes include how-to classes with step-by-step instructions, introduction to new mediums, and art skills and techniques classes that equip you for taking your art to the next level. I also offer private art lessons and traveling art classes. Come join the fun and find your inner artist!
