Dani is amazing! My daughter is loving the time working with Dani and is learning so much. We hope to continue lessons for a long time!
Dani makes every student feel comfortable, regardless of their level of artistic ability. Each class Dani uses her outstanding talents and rapport with each student to develop their talents, their goals, and makes them feel successful. Class is very therapeutic at many levels. Her studio provides a relaxed, beautiful setting, where one never feels intimidated, or out of place. We have all put those ideas in our head" well I could never do this, I have no background in art." Just step inside Dani's art studio, you will feel the calm energy, and realize the joy in being a life long learner. Yes, I marvel at Dani's expertise, but you will be so glad you did this , step outside your comfort zone, you will be hooked. ( not to mention the great fun and friendships made as we all watch, learn and enjoy the beauty of working with Dani Marinucci!
Dani supplies the tools and the knowledge you need to complete your piece. She is very well versed in all medium and let’s you perfect your own style with her guidance. I have loved everything that I have completed in her classes. The studio is a very well lite, pleasant and a calm environment.
Two years ago I moved to a different state. I can truthfully say that I miss Dani Marinucci’s painting classes more than anything else about Cleveland! She is patient, kind, encouraging and you will feel not only inspired but loved! Classes are held in her cozy in-home studio, where her wonderful art enfolds you. She will “meet you where you are” in your level of skill and you will be inspired and motivated by her generous spirit and gentle suggestions as you paint. IMG_8877.jpg Don’t know if the photo posted above will open for you, but it’s a picture of some of us in Dani’s class when we visited the Cleveland Museum of Art. Now who wouldn’t want to be a part of that dear group?! After all, it’s not only “what” a teacher knows, but “who”. And Dani knows the best people for inspiration and assistance. On this day in 2016 we were touring an exhibit that was led (is “docented” a word?) by an amazingly inspirational and knowledgeable professor of art...the trip orchestrated by our Dani, of course. We also were enlightened by this same man’s classes at the Adult Learning series in art history at LCC. Plus, Dani can direct you to framers, photographers, art supply resources and even other art teachers if there is a need. We students were encouraged to enter our paintings in the annual Westlake Porter Public Library’s art show right along with hers! Many of these paintings we were privileged to witness as they evolved and developed on Dani’s own canvases. Fascinating! Wonderful! Brilliant! And a great way to learn! I absolutely loved my “overall experience” with Dani, and would probably never stop taking her classes if I lived in the area again. Kudos to you Dani! You’re the BEST!!!
