Shirley Reade



When we begin to paint… we see the world in a whole different way. We see colors and beauty we have never been aware of before.

When we begin to teach… we look at people in a whole different way. We see their favorite colors and find beauty in them we have never been aware of before.

Beginning students work from books, photos, etc. The more advanced students work from their own photos and creative ideas. It is exciting to watch their works in progress!


Shirley Reade Class Instructor

Each week is a new adventure of learning for me. Our class if filled with fun, laughter, caring and sharing! We miss those who are absent and are glad when they return to class. Students not only come to learn and develop techniques, but to contribute and reach out to each other. I learn so much from each person in the class.

‘A teacher can measure his/her success by the progress of those we teach,
not by the excellence of our performance.’
