About this pro

I am a wife and mother. I am a graphic designer and most importantly, a creator. I can bring your ideas to life. I am a hands-on-instructor that will guide each painter. I want you to be proud to hang your painting on the wall. 

I have been instructing paint classes since 2015 on stemware, canvas, and wood pallets.

I offer kid party packages for ages 5 and up. 

Call me for a team building event for work.

Need a girls night (who doesn’t?!) but making it co-Ed is very fun (men are pretty creative and need an outlet too). 

Want to see my work and the classes who had a blast? Check out my Facebook page. Www.facebook.com/SelfExpressionsPaintClasses

I enjoy being able to see my students’ progress and watch their confidence grow.

  • Don

    I hired Jaime to do multiple classes at the restaurant I managed. She was always a pleasure. Punctual, professional and everyone always had a great time.

  • Tracy

    She took her time to make you feel that painting was easy and fun. I walked in feeling like I would be lucky to paint a stick person. Her laid-back easy talented personality had me walking out feeling proud of what I had painted. And knowing that I had actually done that on my own with a lot of help from the instructor. Thank goodness she put in the extra one on one time with my group that needed it. I'd actually like to reach out and do a private party.

  • Julie Lucas

    She is very easy to follow and willing to give one on one guidance when needed. Everything was provided and set up. I have zero artistic ability but with Jaime's help I created a painting I truly love!

  • Kathleen

    She is really personable and funny. She walks around the room and makes sure everyone is happy with their painting, showing us how to “fix” it. I will definitely be attending more of her classes.




FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I paint, you paint. As I guide you, I show you technique and walk around the room so you can ask for further instruction or confirmation on whether you’re “doing it right”, I get asked that often (you’re not the only one)


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been painting for 20 years, teaching for almost 4 years. I went to school initially for Art Therapy, working with children and adults who went through trauma and/or have disabilities. Paint instruction fell into my lap, happily. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

One on One instruction/ therapy: $50/hr

Group paint class, minimum 10 painters, maximum 25 painters. Canvas/$35/painter: Stemware/$20/painter: Wood/$45/painter


How did you get started teaching?

Beef O’ Brady’s in Hillview asked me to instruct once a month, I couldn’t pass it up. I had 3 months to pull myself together and form a plan. I purchased everything I needed for a class, all the easels, brushes, canvases, paints, water cups, and muscled up the courage to start a new adventure. I have been teaching for 4 years now. I am very blessed to share my natural talents with others, to bring joy to you all. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Group classes are my most typical bookings but I have had the pleasure of working with one on one clients ranging from autistic children to non verbal adults. It is a gift to bring joy to others with the talent God has blessed me with.

I have hosted birthday parties of all ages, starting at 5yrs old up to Sweet 16 years old. 

I have helped with team-building in corporations, brought women closer at church groups, hosted date night, tried to instruct a group of school teachers (they are the wildest group), and most importantly I show you how to develop the artist inside of you. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am most excited about the murals I have been hired for this past year. A middle school mascot in their gymnasium, a Derby horse race in an AirBNB, and a life size Spider-Man in a theater room. 

I am more thrilled about the opportunity to bring joy to others through art therapy. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find an instructor who is interested in what you are looking to achieve. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I do not believe there are any particular questions you can ask a teacher, they should ask you what you’re looking to achieve. Do you want to know techniques, color theory, or are you looking for a relaxing state of mind?
