Studio Art Classes

Beginners can learn to paint without drawing skills. Intermediate students achieve and develop more sophisticated techniques. Advanced students will improve skills and critical analysis.
‘In the Garden I get inspiration, create impossible gardens through trial and error.

...Ellen’s teaching methods, friendly approach and encouragement gave me confidence from my first class. I left with a sense of accomplishment and was amazed at what I had produced in one class. Thanks to Ellen, I have produced many paintings that I am proud of and gained skills I didn’t think I could. I have also met a wonderful group of people I look forward to seeing each week... Lisa Xo
