Art Instruction

  Do you remember how much you enjoyed painting and drawing when you were a child. But then somewhere along the way, things got too busy or maybe someone said something negative about your art, so you stopped creating. Or maybe you still love to create but just need some additional instruction or structure to take your work to the next level.
  My classes offer a small, supportive environment designed for beginners and advanced students alike. Most of your materials are included in one low price so that you can try out something new without having to purchase expensive art supplies. I offer instruction in both realism and abstraction, and allow you to choose what you want to focus on, including pencil, colored pencil, pastel, water color, acrylics, and mixed media. Download a pdf version of my brochure to find out more and let my years of experience teaching put you on the path to creativity.
Mondays and Tuesdays from 6-8pm,
Stanfield-Walker Studio,
2203 Lakeview Terrace, Burlington, NC.
Cost: $30 or $25 if paid in advance.

As a teacher, summer has always been a time to relax and recharge my creative batteries. I almost always attend some kind of art workshop or retreat. This summer is no different. I will be attending a week long workshop with Sterling Edwards and Joe Degulio in August with a focus on abstract acrylic painting. It was Joe that first introduced me to acrylics several years ago. Even though I am comfortable with my own style, I know my skills will improve through the new knowledge and inspiration I pick up.

Perhaps you too need some creative recharging. Summer can be busy with family vacations and other activities, but d
on't let summer pass you by without some creative time for yourself. With this offer you can pick your evenings to fit into your summer schedule. Purchase two 2 hour art classes for $60 and get an additional class free!.That's a savings of $30. You can attend any Monday or Tuesday evening class from May 27 through August 27. Talk a friend into purchasing 2 classes and you will each get another $10 off your total cost. That's a $40 savings! As the American painter Robert Henri said, "The object isn't to make art, it's to be in that wonderful state which makes art inevitable."
