Student Testimonial

“This is far and above the best painting workshop I have ever attended! Tina’s approach to teaching and her method is so understandable, I feel like I can take the information home and improve my painting immensely. She is so forthcoming with her knowledge and very approachable. I hope to have many future opportunities to learn from her.” — Debra Butler, Colorado
