Painting and teaching philosophy: Ann and Mary believe that anyone can learn to create art - the only requirement is a desire to increase knowledge and painting skills. Their teaching method is patterned after the Old World Art Academies. The student learns the academic principles and techniques by duplicating the work of the Teacher/Master. Studies or projects are formulated to stress a particular area of study and all teaching and painting is directed toward that end. The teaching team has taught thousands of students over the past 18 years many of whom have become accomplished artists, MDAs, CDAs and graduates of university of art departments.
