Private and semi-private painting lessons in my garden studio in Carefree.

About Virginia Brooks

I paint a wide variety of subject matter and specialize in scenery of the American Southwest and Europe.

virginia brooksI have exhibited in some of the premier art events throughout the United States. But during the early years I participated in a variety of learning experiences and I often felt the same frustration that many aspiring painters feel. I have been in that large classroom where one feels neglected by the instructor! That is where Come Paint with Me classes differ. I offer a one-on-one painting experience designed for each individual student.

When you walk in the studio door you find everything waiting for you…your canvas, your paints and your brushes are supplied. I want you to spend your entire two hours with me learning to celebrate your abilities.

We work together on side-by-side easels and we paint the same subject. This allows me to explain why I am making certain compositional choices, and to demonstrate exactly how to go about achieving good results in your paintings. Any teacher can stand and paint in front of a class of fifteen painters, but I choose to be along side my painters from start to finish.
