Testimonials

I had the wonderful privilege of attending a private painting class with a group of friends, hosted by Shelley in her studio. We had a really fun evening together, and I walked away with a painting I am very proud of โ€“ and I have a challenge even drawing a stick figure!

I am no artist but she didnโ€™t make me feel bad, instead she encouraged me to have fun with it. Once I loosened up and started having fun, I created a picture I could have never done on my own! Shelly wants to help others discover their passions and I could tell from this class.
