"Anne's teaching style encourages students to find their own path with solid fundamental painting know-how.  I learned much in an atmosphere of humor, patience and understanding of how adults learn.  She is able to guide with confidence and reassurance that every step is valuable." - Corrine


"Hi Anne - Just wanted to thank you so much for helping me take my painting to the next level.  I learned so much in such a short time.  Loved your down to earth explanations of technique, color and composition.  Looking forward to some more lessons in the spring."  Barry


"Just took a two day acrylic workshop with Anne.  What a fun time!  We learned so much, new techniques and all her little secrets of the acrylic world.  We were so fortunate to be able to have lunch out in her beautiful garden.  Did I mention she even serves coffee and goodies.  Came away with an overabundance of enthusiasm, excitement and even an almost finished painting.  Can't wait to take the next workshop.  I'm hooked!"     Lois


"I recently took a two day work shop with Anne after she visited Studio 30 as a guest artist. We were so impressed with her that 7 or 8 of us in the group wanted to do a work shop with her. She was very accommodating and we were able to choose a date. There were only 3 of us there and it was very relaxed and no stress. I had never done acrylic before and she was very patient and supportive. My piece is not finished yet but I learned so much and am inspired to continue in acrylic. The second group I am sure will have the same result. I would definitely do another one with her." Robin

"Hi Anne.  I would like to thank you for such a wonderful workshop on Thursday and Friday morning.  The atmosphere, small class size, and your approach to teaching was just great and I am looking forward to June and our next class."  Jeanne


"Hi Anne, I wanted your to know how much I enjoyed the workshop.  You were well prepared, the pace was great, your humor, patience and skill at guiding us through the steps in creating our "masterpieces" was wonderfu.  I love my painting and can't wait for the next workshop."  Les
