Here’s what my students are saying about my workshops:

We had such a good time yesterday. I am still thinking and engaged with “pastels” this morning. Just saying the workshop has wonderful “spillover” effects. You’re a fine teacher, and I appreciate so much your preparations, demonstrations and instruction. All are gentle and open. You create an ideal environment for creative expression.

– Dawn, Artist

Takeyce was delightful…….organized, informative, two demos given , a wonderful teacher and we all went home with two completed paintings each. So glad I am signed up for her two upcoming classes…….please keep her coming back!!
– Sally Higgins, Artist

“I just wanted to say how very much I enjoyed the workshop Takeyce gave on color theory last weekend. She is a very generous teacher, sharing skills and techniques so articulately. I love her. We had a good group of artists of different levels. The space was pleasant and the time sped by. I got a lot out of this class, but more importantly, I feel inspired to do more art myself. So glad I signed up!”

— Susan Weber

Please check back often, as new classes are added frequently. As always, you can contact me at any time with questions or comments.
