As a teenager I fell in love with the art of Joan Miro, but once I started taking art classes I became infatuated with all the Great Masters of Art...Monet, Manet, Renoir, Rembrandt, da Vinci, Raphael, Turner, etc. I have traveled to nearly 60 countries and visited every major art museum and was especially inspired by illuminated manuscripts such as the Book of Kells (Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland) and the use of gold and metals in Egyptian hieroglyphs in the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Egypt. I started to integrate metals in my oil paintings and created my own style. I have sold my art internationally for over 10 years, also sell online at violachurchill.com and Etsy.com. I have taught Art Appreciation for Kindergarten to 2nd grade for 3 years. I can teach you step by step how to create incredible art, starting with learning the basics of sketching to mixing colors, master duplication and discovering your own style.
She was very talented and professional.
It's important to learn the basics of sketching and shadows and light to understand any painting. Once you master the basic skills you can experiment with different mediums and figure out which best fits your style and personality.
I have studied art and master duplication at Mission Renaissance art school in Pacific Palisades from 2003 - 2008.
I charge $30.00 per hour.
I have worked with children from Kindergarten to 2nd grade.
Having a connection with your teacher is important. It's hard to be creative when you don't share the same passion and vision.
What is your artistic dream? Then I will help you achieve it.
