  • My youngest student is 5 years old, my oldest is 82. 

  • I teach basic drawing and design.

  • When someone asks about the studio, I set up what I call "A TOUR" (no charge)---takes about 45 minutes to meet, look around the studio and decide if you would like to sign up for a session.

  • Most of my students come once a week or once every two weeks.  There are two projects that we start with (in order for me to assess skill level).  After that the student designs his/her own projects, executes the project, and cleans up after themselves. I will then provide tips and tricks to improve the project. 

  • I encourage the student to try most media (I have almost everything here) before they go out and spend big bucks on art supplies. If a student needs anything else, I have catalogs here.  Otherwise, if it’s here, they may use it.

  • A student can do something crafty (like something they've found on Pinterest), but the next project has to be a drawing or a painting. I learned that the hard way--- a student kept wanting to do crafty items, and the parent made it clear to me that they weren't paying me to let their child just play here --- I was to teach them some drawing skills.

  • I'm quite flexible on scheduling.  For the most part, you are able make your own schedule.  I'm not so busy that we'd have trouble finding times/days. 

  • I currently teach about 25 students. 

  • Some of my students don't come during the summer. I have some students who only come during the summer, so scheduling around here can be complex. Please keep me informed of schedule changes.

  • Please let me know if you'd like to take a tour and give me a couple times/days that will work for you, and I'll check my schedule.


  • What are the methods of payment?
    Cash, Checks, Paypal (no credit cards). You may pay each time you come or monthly. Gift certificates are available.
  • Can I bring things to work on?
    Yes. If you have an artwork that needs some more work or Barb’s critique, please bring it.
  • Can I do crafts?
    Crafts are based on ideas of someone else, Artworks are one of a kind. You may do crafts, but the next project must be a drawing or a painting.
  • What is a "Tour"?
    A tour is an opportunity to meet Barb, look around the studio, and make a schedule. There is no charge for the tour, and it takes about 45 minutes.
  • What times and dates are available?
    Mondays through Saturdays 9:00 am -6:30pm When you make your schedule, please provide 3 possibilities of days/times that would work for you, and I’ll check my schedule.
  • What materials are furnished?
    All materials in the studio are available for use. If it’s in the studio, you may use it for your artwork. If we need to order anything, I have many catalogs available.
