have never painted portraits and frankly was quite tentative. Kim
immediately put us at ease and continued to expand our horizons and
color palette. She is supportive and fun, while she encourages and
teaches about a subject that could be overwhelming. Thanks Kim."
"The watercolor workshop with Kim Johnson was a delightful learning experience. Not only did I
benefit from Kim's demonstrations and near encyclopedic knowledge of the
craft, but I received personal suggestions regarding my work as I
progressed on a painting. Kim has a natural, relaxed manner which
certainly made it easy to experiment without feeling threatened or
inadequate. I highly recommend her classes."
