Student Comments…

“Elissa was a wonderful teacher who made learning acrylic painting fun. Her work is very inspiring as well.”

Sandi Digras

“After finishing my 2nd series of lessons I know Elissa herself is one talented artist! As you work in her inspiring studio, you can try to emulate her style, but while she encourages you to try various techniques and be brave, she respects the direction your style takes and helps you produce a work you can view with pride. Her classes are relaxed and fun!”

Sally Isaksen

“I had a wonderful time as Elissa’s student. Her instruction is clear, enthusiasm contagious and energy inspiring. I highly recommend her to beginners and experienced painters alike.”

Darlene Kellett

Elissa’s classes are fun and information filled. “Rose for Tito” which I painted with her is still my favorite acrylic painting hanging in my house. I really enjoyed my classes and hope to take further classes in the future. Thank you!
