During art classes at The Artisan Learning Studio, accomplished brush master and owner Tina Steele Penn instructs each student in the ways of 2-D form, harnessing a mélange of media as pupils master textures, layers, shading, and driving over 3-D items. Future Monets can splash a personal rendition of any concrete or abstract design across an empty canvas using watercolors, acrylics, fibers, and paper collages. The studio aims to craft a welcoming atmosphere where artists of all skill levels can tap into their creative wells and unleash imagination and imprisoned winged dragons with ease. All painting materials are provided, although participants should tote along a 16”x20” artboard to safely stretch and transport masterpieces home, and guests can feel free to bring a favorite beverage and snack to prevent a creative block caused by hunger.
Art Classes with Tina Steele Penn
Raised by a mother who believed in each person's innate artistic abilities, accomplished brush master Tina Steele Penn harnesses that sentiment, a lifelong love of art, and a fascination with color to guide others toward their inner Monets. Within her two studios, she crafts a welcoming atmosphere where artists of all skill levels can tap into their imaginations and unleash creativity and imprisoned winged dragons. Her classes and workshops encourage students to delve into media such as acrylic, watercolor, and oil paints, whereas her private sessions guide pupils toward their individual goals through one-on-one guidance.
