Private Instruction

Alison can arrange to come to your home for private art instruction in drawing, watercolor painting, acrylic painting and block printing. Private and semi private lessons are available for both children and adults in your own home. She builds her lesson structures based on the students particular needs and interests. They learn about the context of the practice, work on assignments to help build skill and together teacher and student dream up projects where the student creates what actually interests them.

Creative Wisdom

"If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for self-initiated learning."
– Carl Rogers
