This high-quality fine art program offers art instruction that goes far beyond cut and paste, and arts & crafts. It offers art students basic understanding of how to draw and paint and teaches them how to see in a new way.

Learn skills and techniques and also learn to break the rules about drawing and painting and create your style. 

Let's have fun this summer! Each week we will focus on different mediums and grow together as artists. Each student works at their pace, so there is no pressure to slow down or speed up for the group. They could work on a different piece every day or one masterpiece all week. The program allows the student to explore his or her creativity while learning techniques for different mediums.

"I have been taking art classes every week with Vanessa; as a result, I have developed my creative skills and foundational principles of drawing and painting. Vanessa’s teaching techniques allowed me to create and learn in a fun and engaging environment that promote creativity, and encourages growing independence.

One of the Vanessa’s greatest strengths as an art teacher is meeting my unique needs by developing a personal understanding of my skills and abilities and tailoring lesson plans to accommodate my interests. She also offers one on one support to ensure that I am able to grasp the learning materials and enhance my personal skills."

"Drawing is something completely outside my comfort zone and to challenge myself, I decided to take drawing classes with Vanessa. Over 8 or 10 weeks, Vanessa has taught me to draw. Quite amazing really, I did not anticipate she would actually be able to teach me to draw. Vanessa is vivacious, has wonderful ideas to teach you drawing, but be forewarned, she is a task mistress. You won't get off not doing work during the class. On the other hand, you are going to come away, having learn to handle a pencil and produce drawings."

Mohan., Tampa FL

"Dear Vanessa:

I can't express all that you mean to me. You have helped me to find another facet of myself, give me guidelines toward my future and ability to be an artist. When I just first came to you, I was looking for a distraction from my problems and you took me way beyond that. A dream of becoming an artists has come true! Your advice, knowledge and caring mindset are things I have come to appreciate and truly care about. Thank you for opening your home to me. Your home with the light sent of incense has come to be my calming place. A million times. Thank you."

linitaVanessa Montenegro is an outstanding teacher she has exceeded all my expectations. She gives "hands-on" help when needed. Her instructions are clear and easy to understand. I have surprised myself by creating beautiful drawings while under her direction. To sit down in front of a blank piece of paper or canvas and have the images come to life is amazing to me. I can hear Vanessa reminding me to overcome the flatness of the image so that it will "POP", and after following her direction as promised the image comes to life. She makes it so easy, and the end result is a small master piece. Vanessa is supportive and encouraging, she never has a negative comment for mistakes I make; but instead shows me how to turn the mistake into something of beauty.

Vanessa thank you for being my Teacher my Mentor my Friend.

Rena's artworkTaking lessons from Vanessa is one of best decisions I could have made for my painting. Not only is she an accomplished artist but a great teacher too. She challenged me and my skills while building my confidence. My lessons were taught based on my personal goals which Vanessa then helped me accomplish. I now sell my art at multiple locations while I continue to pursue a career as an artist.
