Q&A with Suzanne Hern, Studio Director
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
The Mona Lisa Fine Arts Studio is a place where individuals can transcend through art.
Many participants realize a feeling of relaxation through painting and fellowship,
meeting new friends, and actually surprising themselves with the "masterpieces" they create in class.
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
The Mona Lisa Painting Party is just that, a party.
The paintings are whimsical and easy for anyone to accomplish.
One does not need to be artistically talented to be successful in the class.
We make it fun and comfortable to create.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
While attending our painting parties, you can also enjoy the other art and happenings going on a the studio.
Shopping [and] other entertainment is close by while at the studio.
Firm up and have fun while doing it! Ronda's Total Technique in Dance in Blue Springs is ideal for anyone looking to dance their heart out.
Parking is plentiful, so guests can feel free to bring their vehicles.
When he was a child, Michael Russell spent a lot of time in his father’s darkroom, watching and helping him develop photographs. As Russell grew into an adult, he still loved photography but opted to pursue a career in front of the camera as a television news reporter. Even as he interviewed celebrities, presidents, and wax statues of presidents, he found himself most engaged with shooting his own video, and with framing shots of natural landscapes and wildlife. He eventually would leave his broadcasting career to teach photography full time, and venture on expeditions to scenic vistas and art fairs. During Russell’s workshops, his picture-snapping protégés can pick his brain as they practice various photography concepts and sample professional lenses.
