If you think you are novice but have a great desire for art(painting) you are at right place.

I can promise that I can take you to the point from where you will have the confidence to paint something that you haven't done before and a joy of completing an art work that you can feel proud of.

I am saying that because I have that kind of experience with my students who encouraged me continue my passion for art by spreading it across them and community. That's the reason l decided to register here so that I can bring out the artist inside you.

I personally feel that art is a mind relaxing technique and great stress buster. Why not learn something that will relax your mind and will add to your skill set. All age groups are invited.
Thanks !
Happy Painting 😊

"I held a virtual team painting event and invited Sharon to be our tutor. My team has a tight budget, but Sharon managed to fit the painting kit under the budget & the paint was high quality! She also made a video helping us prepare for the painting event: how to stain the palette, how to wash the brushes and how to coat the canvas.

In the painting event, we had a large group (~15 people), so it’s very difficult to coordinate. People had different questions every 5 mins, or people asked the same questions, or you had to wait for other people. Sharon was very patient to answer everyone’s questions. We even went overtime but Sharon was very nice that she continued finishing the painting with us.

All my teammates produced very nice paintings! Majority of them have never painted before, but they created beautiful paintings under Sharon’s guidance. Thank you Sharon!"
