Joyce Shane
Intermediate Watercolour

Painting with Jennifer has given me new life. The classes have been fun, yet I am being constantly challenged to paint way beyond what I ever dreamed possible. Jennifer's in-depth techniques are presented in a straight forward manner. Her teaching has brought incredibly rich colors to paintings I am proud to have created. Thank-you Jennifer.
