A little bit about me, Colleen, that's me, I am Classy, Sassy and a little bit Smart Assy. I am a self taught artist who is passionate about my art. My journey in the art world started when I was a child. I began painting the rocks from my backyard and bottle caps from the local gas station vending machines. OOOH, did I just date myself? I have been painting decorative art for over 30 years, I'll paint anything and everything that will sit still and even some who can't.  Fourteen years ago I decided to share my passion with anyone who would put a paintbrush in their hand and give it a try. Teaching painting is such fun and so rewarding. I am a Master Instuctor for One Stroke painting, I am also certified Instructor for Grumbacher Arts. Yaymaker is a great match me, I truly believe that everyone is an artist, Yaymaker brings out the creativitiy in all of us, and who knew that while having fun and Drinking Creatively, you can create a masterpiece of your own. Thanks for dropping in and getting to know me.

She provided clear instruction, and had fun music. Her tips and technique instruction were incredibly helpful.

Friendly, but did make the group feel a little rushed. We also went over by a full hour.
