December I will have a one-day painting workshop.

In January-February there will be a Young Masters class in drawing in all different types of media.

Thanks for Registering for Art Class!


"My son (7 years old at the time) attended art classes provided by Lisa. She did a wonderful job working with my son who is an odd combination of being a very intelligent boy, but also one who has sensory integration dysfunction (which affects his behavior). Lisa's instruction not only provided a basis for new skills in various forms of art, but also helped him mature and develop teamwork and interpersonal skills."

Kevin Peterson, CPP, Principal Consultant-Partner at Innovative Protection Solutions, LLC

"My daughter is now a professional graphic artist. Your classes were the start of her artistic journey."  -Former Student's Parent

"I looked at what the other Art classes were doing and thought this is no where near what my daughter was bringing home from Lisa's classes. My daughter was doing real Art, these other classes just offered art activities the children could have done on their own." -Art Student's Parent

"When I got to college, I was completely prepared for everything they were teaching, in fact I had done most of it before." -Former Art Student

"You are the most influential artist I have known. I thought of all you had taught me even as I completed my degree in digital arts." -Former Art Student

Last night at the most prestigious portrait competition in our area, in fact one of the stiffest competitions around, all those who get in are the finalists, a young man came up to me and said: "Miss Lisa, you won't remember me, but you taught me art in the first grade." This young man, now 20 years old, grew up to be an artist, exhibiting as a finalist along with me at the portrait competition. His work was amazing. In fact, I had two students there, also an adult who started painting with me when I taught adult beginner classes years ago. One of the Moms of students I have seen become artists. I feel so honored tonight as a teacher and an artist. And I know once opened, inspiration is a door that cannot be closed. I am humbled to be part of the journey of these young artists. Who knows where they will go? I do. I have several students who have taught in missions across Africa, some become teachers, the director of a daycare, and many, many professional artists. I am carrying on the tradition of the teachers who inspired me that being an artist was something I could become.
