Renata S.

Richardson, TX

I've been teaching painting for 15 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of acrylic, oil, watercolor and mixed media painting and created their own beautiful masterpieces in landscape, abstract, still life and other subjects! Within the first few lessons, you'll start understanding the elements of art such as light, shadows, perspective etc. and as time goes on, you'll be able to paint like a pro! I love working with students of all experience levels and see them leave with their hearts and souls painted into their masterpieces.

I love having Hannah as my piano teacher. She is incredibly kind, patient, and considerate. She is superb at customizing the lessons to my interests and her positive attitude empowers me though challenging pieces. I trust her implicitly to provide the best music has to offer and I look forward to learning new topics and techniques each week. I give her my highest recommendation.

My daughter has been a student of Hannah's for over a year. My daughter's talent has grown and developed quite a bit under her instruction. An added bonus, my daughter loves her! Highly recommended by child and parents!

As my student you will learn very important basic to intermediate foundation knowledge of the painting process. This involves Color theory, canvas preparations (wood, Canvas and other substrate choices), Brush selections, Mediums and thinning, Paint storage and reusing. We will work on transferring ideas from still life or sketch to canvas. We will cover brush stroke effects, blending, highlighting and work processes for an efficient and most importantly fun workflow.
