Student Focus Karla Daniel

Meet student Karla Daniel!  She is approaching her one year anniversary of taking classes with me.  One of the best perks of teaching is watching your students grow in their skills.  I thought you would like to see her progress.

This photo is her initial drawing prior to instruction.  She learned how to use her right side of the brain to approach drawing and some technical skills and it wasn’t long before she was well on her way.


 Here’s her experience:  “I’m having such a great time exploring my creative side!  I had never considered the possibility of drawing or art until my husband and I decided to take art classes as a mutual hobby a little less than a year ago.  My expectations regarding my ability were low, but I went into it with an open mind and a desire to learn something new.  Generally cautious by nature, I was afraid in the beginning to make mistakes.  Thankfully most mistakes are fixable.  After starting with graphite, I transitioned to using pastels and have really enjoyed them.  I look forward to many more artistic projects and endeavors including a color theory class next year.  I really appreciate Audrey’s instruction and supportive guidance that challenges her students to continuously expand their skills as well as their appreciate and enjoyment of art.”  Karla Daniel

Congratulations Karla for a job well done!
