Kiersten's fine art lessons focus on two central ideas: 1. Helping students understand and refine excellent technique, and 2.Cultivating, encouraging, and polishing each student's individual style. Kiersten incorporates concepts and exercises based on the atelier, a classical French program that teaches practical, time-tested methods used by master artists throughout history. Lessons usually follow a specific schedule, one that Kiersten has adjusted and perfected through the years. Each class begins with an introduction, followed by an exercise or art game that helps students to warm up and focus on practicing a skill without the pressure of learning while trying to create a finished piece. Next, Kiersten gives a lecture-usually with a slideshow of examples- and/or does a demonstration for the students(s). After this, students work on an assigned project, which is often taught in a step-by-step manner, and finally, students are given time to work on an individually chosen piece under instruction. Kiersten emphasizes spiral learning, learning through repetition, moving forward at a sustainable pace, challenging students to reach full potential, and teaching students the little-known, highly effective methods of the masters. She is also very passionate about tailoring lessons to best fit each student's unique learning style, needs, and interests.

My first lesson was great. Melissa started off very basic for me, as I requested, and answered all my questions and emails.

Sharon was so personable and started me with exactly what I needed. I've skipped over a lot of the basics when doing watercolor on my own and I'm glad to have a direction. Results will be good.
