As a self-taught artist, Susan E. Hanna (our current Featured Artist) considers herself uniquely qualified to teach others of all skill-levels and ages. Her youngest student is five years old. From that age up, every student learns the same way. Each lesson begins with a chat about composition. Each student uses the same pigments every lesson and mixes and paints from the very first day. Susan uses Art Cocoon Carriers for students to paint in and store wet art between lessons. Check out her private and group painting courses at www.SEHstudios.com/Learn .
