I am a professional artist residing in Seminole, FL. I exhibit locally in solo & group shows, and ongoing at St. Pete Artworks, 2412 Central Av St. Pete & the Craftsmen Gallery in St. Pete Beach. I teach watercolor/watermedia, acrylic and art journaling.
I majored in art and have been painting in different mediums for 30+ years. Watercolor & watermedia in general are however, my forte.
I paint about what makes me happy. I love seeing students apply my ideas & guidance to grow their own personal style.
I am having a wonderful experience working with Lourdes. Her knowledge of a variety of painting and mixed media techniques works perfectly with what I am interesting in learning. She is a very talented artist herself and I highly recommend her classes!
Lourdes is an excellent instructor. She is talented and she is patient. I am a total beginner and I am learning from scratch. Lourdes allows me to work at my own pace, without being rushed. She gives recommendations and corrections in a kind and patient way without criticizing. At this point I have had three lessons and have already learned more than I expected. I am already considering more lessons when I have finished this set. I highly recommend her.
Comfortable and well lit .... a peaceful place to learn from a very talented artist!... her teaching skills are exceptional...as a teacher she is able to relate her knowledge in a way that anyone can understand and feel good about the work they just created...anytime , anyplace I will travel.. one of the best investments in myself I experienced... I will definitely recommend!!
New students can join an upcomingworkshop, an ongoing class, or request to work 1X1 with me. 1X1 classes & small groups classes are customized according to where the students are in their art journey and what they want to get out of the instructions. I offer a consultation to learn about their goals & prior experiences so that I can tailor my lessons to their needs.
Bachelor of Arts from Eckerd College, St. Petersburg, FL; 30+ years of painting experience; a thriving artistic practice. Have been teaching workshops & private instruction since 2018. I am a lifelong learner & I also attend workshops with other artists to keep up with new trends & learn new techniques & ideas that I can share with my students.
Depends on the number of students, how they'd like to structure the lessons, length, etc.
I find great happiness from the painting process. My painting has evolved over the years & I have learned tremendously form other great artists. I decided to pay it forward by sharing my process & lifetime of tips with others.
All ages, levels & abilities.
It's important to be clear on what you want to get out of your lessons & communicate these ot the instructor. Ask for a consultation or studio visit prior to ommitting, to make sure it will be a good fit.
What do I want to learn? How committed am I to the learning process? Am I willing to take what I learn & practice on my own? Is there a particular medium or style I am drawn towards? Am I willing to try new ideas?
