Patty Dwyer Artist
My goal is to give my students the skills and confidence to explore painting through personal, warm, tailored classes and studio sessions. I teach workshops in oils, acrylics, beginning water color, pastels and drawing.
I am a nationally recognized impressionist style, landscape painter who knows that Colorado is the perfect place to live and work! I would love to help you begin or continue your art journey.

How did you get started teaching?
I love creativity. I love art. I love helping people who want to learn to paint begin that journey.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have worked with people who have never picked up a piant brush to those with high school art experience to artists who paint regularly.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I had a student last week that had never painted in her life. Her husband purchased studio time for her as an anniversary present. She was a little anxious to start, but as we worked along she realized she could do this. She left with a pretty little aspen painting, a huge smile and a happy heart.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find someone you are comfortable with and who is interested in who you are and your art journey.
