at Annie Shaver Crandell's studio are both instructive
and comfortable. From beginners to trained artists, there is room for all.
Although I have had extensive training, I did watercolors for the first
time with Annie. It was a great experience and I learned a lot.

Annie is thoughtful, informed and enthusiastic.
The other painters in class are all gifted in different ways.
The experience of the interaction in the class is beneficial
to us all.
Wolf: "Painting at Annie's studio is always an opportunity
to try a new approach or idea that I would never have thought
perhaps a new color, or a new brush technique."
