Learn to Paint

Have you always longed to paint, but don't know where to start? Are you already painting but would like to improve?

Everyone loves to paint and draw as very young children. As we grow, we become aware and begin to compare our abilities with others. If we don't measure up, we quit. Everyone can paint... and learn to paint better... with a skill-based classical approach. Denise can guide you in oil painting, acrylic, and pastel painting.

In a message from Kurt Vonnegut to high school students who wrote to him for advice:


“Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpture, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what's inside you, to make your soul grow. Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your life.”
