I believe we are all Artists .. the trick is helping people find their passion for Art and find who they are as an Artist. I am open to helping anyone create anything in any medium. I love a challenge. You never know what you are capable of if you don't try. I enjoy helping people find their way and watch them grow as an Artist.
Amii's talent is beyond any instructor I've found in the past 4 years! She is patient, kind, generous with her time and help! Her paintings can be beautiful, fun, exotic, spectacular...there seems to be no limits to the variety of paintings she offers to her students!
I have taken a few of Amii's acrylic painting classes and all my paintings turn out really nice! Even though I'm an amateur she takes the time to help all her students achieve something great. My confidence with the paintbrush has grown. I highly recommend taking her classes!
I took Amii's acrylic painting class for the 4th of July with my grandmother. We loved it! She taught us how to make a beautiful fireworks painting over a water skyline. We even did the reflections in the water! LOVED this class.
In a full classroom I make sure everyone has some one on one time. In my online class tutorials, I keep the line of communication open through text message and encourage my students to share photos of their work of art in their own time for encouragement, critique and feedback on the next step.
I give away all my secrets. I'll come up with recipes and ideas and think "oo, this is too good to share" but my eagerness to help others succeed to their fullest potential always wins. I show people how I create art, then I show people different ways to achieve what I , or others have created. I don't want anyone to feel like they are in a box and that there is only one way to achieve something. There is no wrong way to create art.

I started teaching as early as elementary school, my friends would ask me to show them how I created my drawings. I gladly shared with them step by step how I did it and quickly learned that everyone not only learns differently but have their own preference on medium and eventually started developing their own style. I also had to teach them how to embrace their individuality, not critique themselves to harshly and not be discouraged of beginning stages because we all have to start somewhere.
I have been teaching Art to all ages in all walks of life.
