"The artist is not a different kind of person, but every person is a different kind of artist"
Eric Gill

Annika has taught private and group art classes, along with painting techniques and history of Art for years.
She has been fortunate enough to teach a wide range of ages and styles of Art in many settings - from private schools to community centers.  That’s when she started her own Art Studio.
Annika's Art classes will take you on a journey of creative discovery.

70% of my students started out as absolute beginners to painting with oils and watercolors – now their homes are filled with fabulous artwork!
