    Portland, OR 97230

    My experience with painting has been my whole life; both of my parents are painters. I teach in a very inclusive, dialogue kind of way. I want everyone to participate and communicate, however I realize that some people are on the shy side. I am very open to all personalities and all kinds of people expressing themselves they want to through their art. Everyone has something say, I want their voice to be heard. I myself am more on the quiet side, however I am also very goofy and silly. I use oil paints the most, it is the medium I have had the most exposure to. If this sounds appealing to you,

  • Suzy Kitman Art Lessons

    Suzy Kitman Art Lessons

    Portland, OR 97203

    Tutoring sessions in my St Johns studio provide a unique and focused environment for all ages to begin or to develop painting and drawing skills. Here are a couple of students commenting on their experience with me: “Not many teachers have Suzy’s understanding of the craft of painting, but what makes her unusual, I think, is her respect for you as an individual. No two people paint alike, and Suzy’s strength is that she doesn’t try to stuff you into a preconceived mold, come hell or high water. She figures out pretty quickly what you’re about, and helps you get where you’re trying to go.”
