Deron does an amazing job he has been working with my 7yr old daughter and I couldn't be happier with her progress. The lessons are fun and she really enjoys them.

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.

This was my first attempt at Watercolor. Monika was very knowledgeable, helpful and personable. I only planned to take two classes and by my 2nd class I was able to see a big improvement in my work... no more signs of my previous acrylic painting style-which was hard to shake. Thanks Monika I thoroughly enjoy my classes.
