Painting Impressions of Beauty and Light


“I've had the pleasure of attending a variety of Pat Fiorello's workshops. Each was well organized to meet the stated objectives, but more importantly, I had a lot of fun. Pat invites her students to watch her demonstrations at close range, which creates a relaxed learning environment. She brings great enthusiasm to her workshops and challenges her students to experiment in order to grow as artists. Along the way, Pat shares what she has learned about color, composition, brush strokes and the varied characteristics of watercolor. The individual attention I've received has improved my skills and confidence. I think anyone can teach technical proficiencies, but it is a rare, talented leader who can truly provide inspiration, and create excitement around getting the paint out of those tubes. That is the difference Pat brings to her workshops.” -Laura G., student, Atlanta, GA


Having learned to paint as an adult myself, I have a lot of compassion and patience for adult students. I enjoy spreading the gift that art has been in my life by inspiring and instructing others. I believe it is possible for anyone to learn to paint if they have the desire and are willing to put in the “brush mileage”—practice! I may be teaching art, but my real aim is to enrich lives by having my students appreciate the beauty of the world around them on a deeper level and to experience the magic and joy of painting.  –Pat Fiorello
