Discover your unique painting style with a friendly teacher with 7+ years experience
I am an artist with over 7 years of teaching experience. I've taught children, adults, and artists with intellectual disabilities and Autism. During your lessons, I want to teach you the techniques of various mediums that interest you. Once we master the basics, I want to help you discover your own unique painting style! For our first meeting, I'd love to get to know you and what your interests are. I can then cater lessons specifically to those interests as we build your painting skills. A huge piece of painting well is building a strong foundation in your drawing skills. These skills will be built into every lesson. Let's work together to paint from a place that excites you in a supportive environment!
About Allison R.

I am a professional abstract artist who is passionate about teaching others how to express themselves creatively through painting. Throughout my art career, I have worked with children, adults and artists with intellectual disabilities and Autism. With over 7 years of teaching experience, I have taught classes in drawing, watercolor, acrylic, and mixed media. I am a fun-loving teacher that wants to help you find joy in every step of the learning and creative process, because painting should be fun! I have been mentored over the past 20 years by professional artists who taught me techniques in drawing, painting and basic art principles that I now teach my students. I received an undergraduate degree and special training in working with artists with disabilities. There were years of my life when I let my inner critic stop me from creating. So, lets silence yours, and build those painting skills so you can confidently create.

Allison was an amazing teacher! I just recently started painting for myself but I didn’t know what I was doing! After taking a few classes with Allison, I have a whole new understanding of painting and being creative! She has helped me improve my composition and has helped me look my art in a new way. I 100% recommend taking classes with Allison, she is a true gem!

My daughter is normally very shy and doesn’t like new people but, she was very talkative to Allison. After one class, my daughter was talking a mile a minute! She had so much fun painting and chatting! She was so excited to be painting! I am so happy to have found Allison! She is a true professional and is such a sweet person! She’s great with kids and is a great instructor! My daughter loves her! I cannot say enough good things about Allison!

Allison is the best! My son and daughter love taking classes with her! She is fun, smart, and really kind! She taught my them so much in just a matter of a couple classes! She is great! My kids love her and have been having so much fun learning and painting! It’s a great way for them to learn and have fun after school.
