I help frustrated new acrylic painters find joy in their creative process by guiding them through focused lessons to build their knowledge and refine their skills.

Meet Your Instructor!

Hey, I'm Liz! I'm so excited that you're here! I'm a Chicago-based business owner, teaching art classes, virtual paint parties & creating DIY paint kits to keep families everywhere busy and connecting! 

I have a passion for sharing the joy of painting with others, and I truly love what I do! My teaching practice has taken me into schools, community art centers and summer camps all over Illinois, and now I've expanded with online teaching for kids and adults.

I'm a professional acrylic painter with a BFA in Art Education and a Masters in Special Education LBS1. I'm in my 7th year of overall art teaching experience, with 3 years experience as a high school Special Education teacher and case manager. 

My teaching is always focused on diverse learners, and incorporating differentiated instruction however possible. I have experience teaching art to a wide range of students, including those with Anxiety, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, Emotional/ Behavior Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and Developmental Disabilities.

I truly love teaching art, and love that I get to do it every day! I believe that everyone has something truly unique to share with the world, and that creativity must be praised and cultivated. 

I'm on a mission to make art more accessible for all, one class at a time, by creating lessons that cater to my students' differing styles, no matter their age, ability, or background. 

I believe in creating an environment of fun and exploration. Not lecture-based, but students and I learning and creating together. 

I look forward to painting with you!
