Knowledgable and patient tutor

Leslie was very competent and thoughtful. She asked for copies of my work and she studied all the material I sent her. The prep work she put into the lesson was very impressive. She was very helpful as I worked thru my painting and she also had a good follow up suggestion. Thank you Leslie.

Denise, 1 lesson with Leslie

Great first lesson

I learned a few watercolor techniques and then applied those in a painting. Leslie provided some constructive criticism to help me adjust errors on my painting. Overall a good first session.

Drawing

Leslie was great to talk to about getting started with drawing. She listened to what I was interested in, shared various directions to explore, and had lots of helpful suggestions about supplies and practice exercises.

Knowlegeable and fun teacher

We have had several lessons with Leslie. She is wonderful! My daughter wants to attend a specialized art school for high school, but has had no formal training and has no understanding of technical basics. Leslie took on our challenge with the idea of teaching the basics, strengthening her existing knowledge, and building confidence to create a portfolio this winter. We are extremely happy and my daughter looks forward to her lessons each week.

Knowledgeable, personable--just right

Leslie makes learning fun. She is clearly a highly experienced art teacher with a friendly style. You'll finish your lesson knowing more and having smiled more. Highly recommended.

Great introduction to techniques

Leslie is obviously very skilled at her craft and we enjoyed learning basic watercolor techniques from her. We plan to meet again to create a piece online together.
