A positive and enthusiastic mentor, Melanie has developed a loyal following of students over the past twelve years.  She instills a sense of independence and desire for experimentation, allowing them to discover their artistic voice.  Individuals are encouraged to work on their own material, at their pace and in any medium:  watercolour, acrylic, oils and mixed media. Occasionally, the class will work on an assigned project, experimenting with new methods, materials or techniques. She stretches her students beyond their comfort zones in a fun and supportive atmosphere shaking things up with demonstrations, mini workshops, gallery tours and plein-air adventures.  She ends the season with a group art show. 

Melanie is a certified GOLDEN Artist Educator.
