what my students are saying:
I've enjoyed taking the beginning drawing classes from Lisa and had a wonderful experience. Lisa gives great direction and information in her lovely home, complete with tea during the break. I would recommend her for sure!

I just took my first drawing class in my life from Lisa. (Except for the one in middle school which was a real bust.) It was really fun, and I learned that I have more art in me than I thought! She is very helpful and encouraging. Now I have a whole different view on making and looking at others' art.

Wonderful teacher. I have recommended her class to several friends. One of my best decisions in 2013 was to take the leap.

Lisa's classes are well organized, informative and fun. She teaches techniques that can be developed further according to personal taste. Her classes are good for beginners and accomplished artists alike and are small enough for a lot of personal attention. The relaxed environment such as one finds in her beautiful studio, allows the student to explore and develop ideas and new techniques

Excellent teacher! The Print class was fantastic....learned a new art and creative form that can be applied to many future projects. Left the class with an assortment of creations that I will use for notes, greeting cards and special gift wraps. Ms. Bruce has the ability to bring out the inner artist that the student has waiting to explore.
