Ronni loves to share her passion for art with those who are interested in learning, especially beginners. People who are too intimidated to take art classes because they don’t think they “have any artistic talent” or who “can’t draw a straight line” can unleash their creativity in a safe, comfortable setting, under Ronni’s watchful eye.  She teaches the many different skill sets required by her art form: not just how to “paint with paper” but also drawing, understanding value, color, composition, and layering.

Ronni is currently taking a break from teaching, but she’ll continue her classes (in the Washington DC area) in the near future. 

In the spring of 2018, it looks like she’ll be teaching workshops at Glen Echo Park. She may also teach at Artists and Makers in Rockville.

Workshop :  April 9, 2017    10:00 am – 2:00 pm – beginners ($100)

The Level 1 workshops are an introduction to the art form, “painting with paper.” I will be teaching you the basics of painting with paper – as we rip, cut, and crinkle hundreds of kinds of paper gathered from all over the world.  You’ll glue the papers down as you create a beautiful scene with trees.

For the Level 2 workshops, you will create a work based on one of the themes listed above.  You’ll be building on your introduction to “painting with paper” from the Level 1 workshops.  There is a materials fee of $25 to be paid to Ronni at the time of the workshop.  You can find out more information about these workshops by visiting the VisArts website.
