Painting Student

The oil painting class, led by Pat (Hobaugh), has been such a fun and enriching experience. Pat is an incredibly gifted and knowledgeable artist!  Plus, he is a patient and deliberate teacher with a warm and welcoming personality. I cannot think of a more supportive environment to learn about the process of painting and to grow ones’ artistic talents.”


Drawing Student

“I really enjoyed the face drawing class.  The instructor was very encouraging and inspiring and definitely helpful in the practical aspects of capturing the human face.  I’ve taken several classes at Callanwolde and each teacher is unique – some bring food, some play music, but they all help you find your own creativity and expression.   There is always plenty of supplies and workspace in the classrooms, so a large investment in supplies isn’t necessarily required.  I look forward to taking some classes and meeting more wonderful people who share an enthusiasm for art.”


Drawing Student

“I enjoyed the Faces and Figure drawing classes of MaryBeth Andrews. Ms. Andrews is an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher. I would be happy to recommend her classes to any art student at any level of study.”
