“I really enjoyed Laura’s intro to painting in acrylics! I’m very much a beginner, but that didn’t seem to be a problem. She had some people who were far more advanced and she was able to give everyone individual  attention and instruction. I’ll be taking the pet portrait workshop next.”

“I took a painting classes recently. I wanted to try something new that would make me a bit nervous. I definitely learned a lot!

It was really fun and Laura is amazing! The last time I painted was in high school for a brief moment. Painting was never my thing, but the classes, students, and Laura helped me enjoy it! Laura is amazing and great for any level and ages that are willing to learn something new!

Make sure to check out her classes! I had a lot of fun!”

“I signed my daughter Betty up for a one-on-one lesson at North Park Art Studio and she was thrilled with both the experience and the resulting painting. Laura’s teaching style is gentle and engaging. We both liked how Laura was eager to share from her own practice, suggest new materials and paint colours, and advised new approaches to help make painting easier and more fun. Fun and funky studio setting. We will definitely be back in future!”
