Jill’s offers art instruction to students that are looking to advance their painting practice. Accustomed to teaching students at all levels, Jill instills confidence and encourages students to take risks with remarkable outcomes. Jill’s demos and critiques cover the basics and her own insights into what makes a successful painting. Jill works with each painter individually to enhance their painting practice both in her online and real-time workshops.
Painting serves as a retreat, a form of meditation where the artist can find their center as well as express and release emotions. A wonderful form of communication to connect with another person(s). It is a visual validation of time well spent leaving the artist with a sense of accomplishment and self-worth. Sharing painting with my students is extremely rewarding as I witness their transformation and growth.I look forward to offering students a supportive environment for learning as well as finding a respite through painting.
