Ellen's Students Say

"I was so happy when I found Ellen Michel for my painting teacher. Her enthusiastic passion for teaching and practice of oil painting makes her the perfect painting teacher. When I first came across Ellen’s website I was drawn to her vast experience in teaching and her beautiful paintings with their many styles. I was very much a beginner when I joined Ellen’s Oil Painting classes but I quickly gained confidence. With Ellen’s guidance and patience, clarity of instruction, in a step by step process, I built knowledge in all aspects of oil painting. I have no hesitation in recommending anyone who has even the faintest desire to be an oil painting artist. It’s the best thing I have ever done...."
