to joyfully create art, like these happy students
"Elaine was able to take me from a person sitting before a blank canvas to a woman who saw herself as an artist! I created a beautiful seascape that gives me such a feeling of pride. Thank you, Elaine for bringing out such talent in me – yes, Me! I still can’t believe it!" - Jane Meade
"For a few years I’ve wanted to try my hand at painting but didn’t know where to start. Walking into an art store was intimidating and I had no idea what to buy. Oil? Acrylic? Watercolor? Then I decided to do a workshop with Elaine. She introduced me to acrylic paint and from that point I fell in love with painting. She helped me put a brush to canvas for the first time and was patient in her instruction. Now I have a new hobby I love and I owe it all to her!"
- Shalah Fisher
“Elaine Allen is the teacher I have been looking to find for years. I have taken several classes over the years but with Elaine I feel a real sense of accomplishment and growth in my art. I would usually throw away the pieces I made in classes. But with Elaine’s classes I have finished works I am proud of. She has a knack for really inspiring her students to create. I would recommend any class you can take with Elaine. She has impressed me in a variety of mediums. She has even helped me impress myself! Thank you Ms. Allen. Please keep doing what you do.” - Vickie Frazier
"Elaine is patient, encouraging, and fun! She makes every class enjoyable, and I really like my finished work." - Shirley Hansel
"I love art classes with Elaine, she gives very detailed instructions. I have taken art classes before and can truly say that these are my favorite! She is a talented instructor." - Jo Mehr

What Type of Paint is Right For You?
Hi, I'm Elaine, and I'm so excited for you - you have a unique creative voice that you want to express! And I want to let you know that you can do it beautifully.
In my many years of teaching and doing creative work, I've seen that it only takes the smallest nudge and a little instruction, and your creativity will soar.
And I understand how confusing it can be to get started.
A trip to an art supply store – either in-person or online, can be overwhelming…so many choices!
Do you want to paint? There are so many kinds of paint! And then what brushes should you buy?
Maybe drawing should be first… Pencils? Charcoal? Markers? And then what surface to work on…Canvas? Paper? What kind?
You may be watching lots of videos, or even trying some free courses, but still are unsure. You’re not alone…there’s so much information, and some of it just doesn’t get you where you want to be:
I’m SO GLAD that you’re here, because I will help and guide you! I will explain different mediums and how you use them, give you buying suggestions, and walk you through some projects, making everything super easy! Your confidence will grow as you believe in your ability and answer the call of your yearning.
Let's make some beautiful art together.
