"Fostering Peace through Creating, Sharing & Teaching Art."
Painting and writing are my passions ... I love to help people achieve their artistic goals one to one and in small groups. I offer art lessons in acrylic, pastel, and watercolor painting. I started painting when I was 5 with my grandfather and earned an MFA in drawing and painting. I have been a full time artist and teacher since 2000.
Pamela is a fantastic and patient art teacher. I have had the pleasure of taking lessons with her for over 3 years. She has taught me everything from pastel painting to framing. Truly a gifted and talented woman.
Pamela is extremely knowledgable in all aspects of fine art. She is very organzied, detail orientated, and articulate when explaining the process and procedures of making art with her students. Pamela was also very kind, nurturing and supportive of me as a student - artist. I highly recommend Pamela as an instructor and mentor.
What a joy to be able to have Pamela Wamala as my teacher!! She is a very talented artist and a wonderful teacher. I have learned so much. I leave a class encouraged, validated, and inspired to continue to grow.
Always encouraging with lots of tips on technique specific to the medium you are using. I was a true beginner and she was key to getting me to follow my dream. My confidence grew every day through her gentle critiques and guidance and I recommend her highly.
The first step a student takes before working with me is to fill out a short questionnaire so I can understand their background and artistic goals.
After that, if the student hasn't yet decided which medium to explore, we discuss and decide this. I offer: pastel, watercolor, acrylic, collage, papermaking, cardmaking and various crafts.
We also plan which subject matter - landscape, abstract, floral, still life, imaginary?
I earned a BFA in Drawing and Painting and have been painting and teaching full time since 2000. My studio was at the Brush Art Gallery & Studios in Lowell, MA for 14 years. In 2017 I moved my studio to my home in Lowell, MA in order to focus more on teaching, painting and travel.
I offer 3, two hour private sessions and include all the materials for the first 3 lessons. Students leave their first class with a materials kit.
We typically meet once per month, providing time to do homework between lessons.
I charge $ 375 for 3 Private 2 hour sessions. (Cost of all necessary materials to start are included in this price.)
After the first 3 classes we decide how to proceed ... some students pay monthly or purchase 3 sessions at a time. Some students decide to try another medium with me.
I first started teaching art lessons in answer to requests from visitors to my art studio in 2004. Additionally, in 2009 I developed the Elder Art Initiative Program, a teaching service that provides art programming to seniors in assisted living and nursing home communites.
