Spoil yourself and gratify your inner muse by customizing your own special painting class in Nancy Reyner’s private fully equipped, comfortable art studio – only 4 miles from the Santa Fe Plaza in the center of town. For individuals, couples and groups up to 12, Nancy will supply all materials and equipment including a catered lunch for full days.
Nancy Reyner is an expert instructor in acrylic, oil, mixed media, and drawing and has been teaching art for over 30 years – and still loves it! She has taught nationally to students of all levels, shapes, and sizes; from Columbia University to the Georgia O’Keefe Museum to Santa Fe Art Institute. Nancy has authored 3 painting technique books with North Light Books, all top-sellers.
Nancy says, “My goal is to give each student the next best step – whatever that requires – on the way to finding the medium, style, and approach that best fits. Instruction is meant to add inspiration and empowerment, while enabling artists to “speak” more clearly and powerfully through their work.”
For Nancy, art is not a mysterious process, and she enjoys breaking down advanced concepts and techniques to easy bite-size pieces. Her workshops are un-intimidating, energized, informative, personal, and charged with up-to-date art news, art ideas, and new processes. Workshops are designed to accomplish the following goals: maintain a beneficial rhythm and pace, have fun, experience a wide variety of painting methodologies, explore how ideas can be generated through a playful collaboration with materials, and allow maximum flow of the individual creative experience (a more complex way of saying “having fun”).
