North Park Art Class and Workshop Reviews

Took a beginner’s color mixing and still life in acrylics class at North Park Art studios and so enjoyed it! Laura is a great teacher…patient and knowledgeable and gently guides you rather than instructs you allowing you to develop your own art piece and style. the studio space is bright and lively getting your creativity flowing.
Laura was also very good about COVID precautions and kept class sizes small, sanitizer out, supplies sanitized and masks required. thanks for an great class🙂


Love Laura’s art classes! I’ve taken 2 sessions as a completely new art student with no experience other than a desire to get creative! I would highly recommend – Laura is a talented artist who is super chill and easy going, encouraging and lovely. Cute, bright, little studio with completely reasonable rates and low student to teacher ratios. Thank you!


I took the sketch book course, and loved it. Laura was so well prepared with materials and lessons. She had great tips and was so gentle and encouraging. It was a very relaxed, informative and fun class. I will be signing up for other classes and workshops.


A wonderful place to spend the afternoon! I brought along a photo I wanted to replicate in painting form and Laura patiently helped me with my vision, helped in mixing the colours to get the perfect shade, and ultimately I finishing the project in a few hours and is now on my wall at work. It’s a cozy space that inspires creativity. I would highly recommend North Park Art Studio!


Highly recommend Laura’s cosy studio as a place to learn both the basics and more advanced techniques and media. Great teacher… patient and fun.  I’ll be back 🙂


Had so much fun with Laura & the rest of the classmates in this art class. Laura was clear in her instructions & motivated us regularly which is important for adult beginners.

Would highly recommend the North Park Art studio.


I took a painting classes recently. I wanted to try something new that would make me a bit nervous. I defiantly 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!


Great classes and instruction! I took two classes with Laura- basic of acrylics, and portraiture. I learned so much and am proud of my art!


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.


Many thanks to my lovely students for taking the time to leave a review. You can find review posting on my google business page, and if you’ve taken a workshop with me feel free to write one of your own! Thanks so much. -Laura
