Wendy is a long time art coach, helping students for deacades discover the artist within by teaching simple methods and working with the student at his or her level
“I love to help people learn to express themselves with painting, and am always excited to help a new person see that they can indeed paint! Patience and tools: this is how we create new artists, and anyone can do it”
These are some of the things people say to me:
“I can’t draw!”
So often I have heard people say this when I meet them! A bit wistfully, they tell me they tried once and found they could not draw. I believe everyone can draw exquisitely if they learn how! I have taught thousands of people to draw in less than an hour and everyone who followed the steps learned how!
“I have no talent”
Yes, everyone has talent! In a room full of kindergarteners none with say they are not good at art. Yet most adults think they are not artists. I have seen hundreds of people discover the artist within. There are tried and true methods to do this, and I love watching people blossom in this way!
“I am too old to learn”
It is never too late. You increase your ability to learn by learning! I like to take people at the pace they are comfortable and teach them to paint. Going at your own pace is the key.
“I am not the talented one in the family”
Perhaps a relative was singled out as the artistic one, leaving not much room for you to be an artist. You can learn by following the steps and regain your confidence as an artist.
“Watercolor is too hard”
This is a myth. Once you learn the basics, watercolor is easy, and more fluid and interactive than other paints. If you love the look, you will want to learn the method!
