I have been painting for over 35 years and am trained professionally as an art therapist. I can teach both representational painting and provide prompts for deeply revealing artwork to help my students work thru life issues.
I am a published author in the field of art therapy, and enjoy spreading the love of painting to people of all skills and levels.
Diane makes the projects and the learning fun . I wanted to be motivated to try new things and that's what I'm getting working with Diane .
Gave good directions, easily understood. Encouraging. A great sense of humor!
Diane is an excellent teacher - encouraging and patient, has a great sense of humor, would recommend to anyone.
Very creative her art. Open to sharing ideas and helping others create art that is beyond their expectations. Not at all negataively critical and encourages others to express themselves freely.
We discuss what they want to learn, what their passions are and what if any, limitations they may have. We'd start with a high-satisfaction painting that will teach layering, shading and other painting skills while creating a unique and personal first project.
I have a BA in Art Therapy and Behavioral science.
I've written three books on art as therapy including hundreds of projects for artists.
Seniors, Kids 10 - up and disabled individuals. All ages.
Look for someone who can support and inspire your artistic growth.
