    Intermediate Abstract with Zona Wainwright

    Published by Meredith McLanahan on Nov 2nd 2022

    I love NOAFA. The Annex space where class is held is so bright and conducive to creating art. I have been taking classes with Zona for more than a year. She has a wonderful way of presenting new ideas for color, design, and structure for your paintings. We work and she comes around and makes gentle suggestions which I reduce to the painting needs "concealer or eyeliner" and she is able to make each of our paintings look better and still remain our paintings. This class is always a remedy to a stressful week for me and my painting has really improved under Zona's watchful eye.
