"Julie is a well-prepared knowledgeable instructor. She was very positive and caring throughout the class."
"Julie Engelmann is an excellent instructor - she's knowledgeable, fun and helpful!"
"I enjoyed painting with Julie and learning about how to make a beautiful abstract painting. Although, i am not an artist I still like to try and paint gorgeous pictures. I am rarely successful but the process is good for my soul. It was wonderful to see all the beautiful paintings produced in this class and the critiques were very informative."
"Very encouraging style; even her critiques were uplifting rather than downcasting."
"Julie was a superb instructor. I hope to take another class from her in the future."
"This art class was such a blast! It exceeded my expectations in every way! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and learned so much! I’m glad Julie covered all the information/strategies/abstract painting techniques that she did, and I wouldn’t have wanted to miss any of it. Julie also gave plenty of individual guidance and attention. She has a very pleasant, kind, thoughtful, non-judgmental, and upbeat style. We had both beginners and advanced artists in our group, including a professional artist, and the class seemed totally relevant and helpful for all of us. I'm hoping to take the class again to further develop my painting skills and creativity. Thanks for providing the art supplies (very helpful) and for offering such a wonderful class!"
"As an experienced artist trying a new direction, I really appreciated that she gave us an sufficiently broad, but detailed overview of the techniques with personal guidance as we tried them. I wanted to see all the techniques she used being done, and am already using them to create more fun in my landscapes.... Loved the demo on the small touches to bring about big changes by really taking the time to 'see' the painting first."
"Julie is fun, sweet, kind, enthusiastic, and a great teacher! She has the ability to help us see our artwork with fresh eyes looking for the good instead of focussing on the bad. It was a wonderful experience and I will take another class with her one of these days!"
"Very knowledgeable, with a fun, light-hearted attitude. no pressure, just good ideas and advice."
"Julie is very kind and relaxed. She shared several techniques that would serve as motivation to making a truly unique painting. Her use of colors is wonderful. I am looking forward to more information about painting wet with acrylics."
"Julie is an excellent instructor. Her feedback was honest and sought after by everyone in the class. Her style of teaching resonated with me and I was able to walk out of the class with all of my goals met. Her passion for what she is doing is absolutely inspirational!"
