    The best thing about art on the lane is Barbra. She’s patient, knowledgeable and kind. I have learned so much from her and appreciate her willingness to help and inspire when I want to give up!

    Frequently asked questions

    A new student will choose an image to paint, either landscape, simple seascape, flower, etc., and I will help him/her draw the image on canvas.  Next, the student will paint along with me, as I demonstrate color mixing and techniques for applying the paint and blending colors.
