I took painting lessons about 10 years ago and haven’t done anything since. I brought a 1/2 finished painting. Maggie was great helping me set up and seeing where I was and what I remembered. Then showed me some techniques to help get me going. I’m looking forward to our next lesson.
Steve K.
Maggie is a talented instructor. Helped me tremendously with oil paint color mixing and matching.
Melissa R
Maggie is an exceptional teacher who has her classroom management skills down to a tee. It’s amazing to watch her command a classroom full of children while remaining sweet and never losing her cool. She was a great mentor and I learned a lot about art education from her!

Watercolor painting has a way of showing emotion and expression. The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop.

Students will be introduced to the color wheel, basic materials needed, perspective, and the differences between realistic and impressionistic painting techniques.

Materials are not included.

Watercolor painting lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.

Today I had my first lesson with Roya. She is very patient and fun to learn with - despite my initial nervousness I got so many insights, and am looking forward to my next lessons. :-)
Vince C.
Great instructor who has shown me how to fully take advantage of the medium of charcoal during my lesson.
John
Roya is an excellent instructor for adults just starting out or getting back into art. While my interest was only in sketching, she continually challenges me and now I’m enjoying working with charcoal and pastels. Her patience with me is helping me learn to be patient in my drawing.
