Classic Beauty, Alive with Color, Paint & Passion!


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
