About Holly

Hello! I am a professional artist and have been teaching drawing and painting to learners of all ages and abilities for nearly 20 years. I have taught classes and workshops at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, Bloomington Art Center, Banfill-Locke Center for the Arts, as well as in less conventional settings such as parks, hospitals, galleries and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. I love sharing my experience and knowledge of art with others. Art is an ongoing discovery for all of us and I often learn as much, if not more than the learners I work with.

My teaching style is to start at whatever level the learner currently is comfortable, and to build onto those skills in logical, progressive steps. I believe artists need good tools to make the art true to who they are as individuals. At the same time, I believe the clues to revealing an artist's unique voice are present even with beginning artists and should not languish while laboring to learn technique.

In-person lessons

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I have a BFA in drawing and painting from the University of Minnesota.

I am a visual artist who has been actively involved in the arts community for the past thirty years. I create and exhibit drawings and paintings, teach drawing and painting at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts, among other venues, and engage with the public at art festivals, exhibitions, art making demonstrations, open studio events and lectures. My award-winning work has been shown in over fifty solo and group exhibitions throughout the Midwest and is found in public and private collections locally and nationally.
