And, as always, I will  diffuse a few essential oils to relax you and help you focus & concentrate while you paint!

This calming effect is addictive!

Developing painting skills is addictive!

I’m happy to say, my painting classes are addictive!

I welcome any level, from beginner to advanced into my painting classes. The principals of art are always the structure while also allowing freedom from “rules” to enhance creativity.

This is my “Art Therapy”…

Student Testimonials

“Using a limited palette was one of the exercises that Kathy Cooper incorporated into her ateliér last year. Of all that I’ve learned from Kathy – and that’s a great deal – this was one of the most practical and beneficial in terms of understanding color. I believe I’ve truly grown my artistic ability by using the limited palette.”

– Ellen Hurley

“When Kathy began our study of color, we all complained about the limited palette. Now I realize how valuable a lesson it was. After a year of using white, yellow, red and blue almost exclusively, I find I can match almost any color I see in nature. Using a limited palette allows me to recognize the relationship of colors, and how to push a color cool or warm by a touch of one of the primaries.” Thanks Kathy!
