"I needed to start from the ground up with oil painting, and Eleanor was patient and very knowledgeable. She walked through the basics via a painting of a photo of mine we chose for appropriateness for my level. I learned many techniques over the course of my lessons that have had an empowering effect. I now feel confident in working with oils.

Something I appreciated was her self-paced approach. I never felt rushed or held back. In terms of personality, Eleanor is bright and kind. She was fantastic about keeping me focused and correcting my techniques (I liked this especially because I didn't want to start off forming bad habits). I really wanted to get a solid understanding of painting with oils that I can apply on my own, and I certainly have. In the future I hope to work with Eleanor again as I further develop my skills."

"Having Mr. Ohasi as an Instructor has been one of the most valuable and enjoyable things I've done in life. It sounds a bit cliche, but in all honesty, I've learned more about myself in the time I've worked with him than I've done in a long while.

He not only helped me understand how to build my skills, but also that its okay to be an individual. At the same time he taught me how art centers around community and helping each other develop into people who can help others. He helped me to put my thoughts/ dreams on canvas and helped me make them real. I truly enjoy his classes!"
