I found Barbara’s classes when I was searching for someone who could further develop my skills as a realist painter. What I found was so much more. Barbara is a wonderful teacher who turns class into an amazing trip into discovering your capabilities. Her knowledge of art history from both the contemporary to the Old Masters, and her deep understanding of color are beyond any other instructor I have encountered in the past. She also is able to present this amazing knowledge in a warm, supportive and relaxed environment. I feel very lucky to have found Barbara. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for a teacher who can, from the beginning, put you on the path to improving your skills, no matter if you are a beginner or a more advanced student.
