What some of our students have to say about our workshops

Just wanted to let you know that Andy Evansen's workshop was wonderful. ClapBlushNot only do I appreciate his looser painting style (if only I could paint but he is a good teacher...explained what he was doing and why... and repeated it so we had a chance to really grasp it. Cant wait until we can do an in-person several day workshop with him..

Thank you and the Firefly for arranging this workshop and others. It is greatly appreciated.

Painterly yours, Toni


Thank you Jan for bringing yesterday’s amazing workshop to us. Although I have heard everything Andy had to say before in different workshops, it is finally starting to make sense. Andy has a unique way of making these concepts palatable. He is really a great teacher. This workshop inspired me to take out the books I’ve collected on watercolor painting and to revisit and practice all of the techniques I’ve learned and forgotten along the way. I am also going to make a concentrated effort to do value studies as they are so important to beginning painters such as myself. I can’t thank you enough for mentoring and nurturing me as an artist. I am forever grateful!
