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.
I’ve had two lessons and I find Diane very warm, pleasant and knowledgeable. She makes learning fun. I’m looking forward to many more lessons.
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.
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.
