Colorful Living Studio LLC-Ahava Farm were founded in 2018 as a compilation of my 30 years experience in the visual, performing, horticultural and literary arts along with a my lifelong commitment to the natural world-both plant and animal preservation. I offer a thorough knowlege of color, design, use of the mediums chosen, and art history to my students-the latter integral to placing their own work in a broad context.Art raises the self esteem of people engaged in creating- and beautifies our environment. I look forward to offering this skill and passion of mine to new students.
I love interacting with my students-enjoy meeting new people and seeing their work develop. As an added bonus for students,I will work with them online if distance or circumstances prevent visiting my studio. My goal is to give people a sense o creative freedom and mastery that will go with them throughout their lives.
My daughter is excited each week for her lessons. She wants to keep learning and improving.
New students start with a variety of drawing exercises-along with some mixedmedia work to get the design, color, and imaginative processes warmed up. We move to paint soon thereafter and projects are assigned based on the student's primary visual interests.
