University Professor

"I like detail work, so wanted to try to paint like Kincade. Joan guided me through it step by step, explaining about the different layers, and various techniques for mountains, trees, lake etc. I love her hands-on teaching and the way she explains everything in such a clear manner. Joan has a great sense of humour, is very patient, and her lessons are enjoyable and stress free. She is very knowledgeable, truly artistic, and builds a student's courage to give it a try. She makes me feel like I can do it! She can do that for you too!

"My Aunt once told me, "If I can paint, anyone can paint" so I decided to take her up on that comment—and then I found Joan. Joan has been my instructor now for just over a year. I have been truly amazed at the results I've been able to achieve through Joan's patients, inspiration and knowledge. She has taught me that "there are no mistakes when one paints with oils" and she has always been right. If you have any desire at all to attempt painting, I strongly recommend you take a class with Joan. You too will be amazed at what you can do!!!"

"In the fourteen months since I started taking lessons from Joan, I have learned the following:
1. It does not matter that Icannot draw a straight line unless my table-top easel is crooked.
2. There are few mistakes that cannot be fixed with patience and a little time.
3. It is amazing that I have created paintings that I can give away without embarrassment.and,
4. It is all because of Joan's patience, humour, and love of sharing her passion for and knowledge of painting. "

"I find Joan to be very knowledgeable and supportive. She encourages me when attempting every new brush stroke, and also makes it clear that there is no real "wrong way" to do something. I seem to get to a point in every picture, where I despair of getting the finished picture to resemble my reference source but Joan's encouragement and guidance gets me there every time. I highly recommend her lessons, jump in and have a go, you may surprise yourself, I did."

"This is the 4th picture I painted in Joan's class. As I was painting this picture I wasn't able to visualize the finished product. With Joan's patience and instructions and much to my surprise the picture turned out to be a true likeness to the photograph I used as a reference. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to paint
with oils."
