    Intermediate Abstract

    Published by Pam Mudge on Mar 2nd 2024

    This class is taught by Zona Wainwright. I have never considered myself an artist, and still do not, but I am so glad I came across noafa and Zona. Zona encourages and inspires her students to bring out the best of their abilities and paint their view of life. Zona is always encouraging, always coming up with really good suggestions for her students. Her classes and teaching style is very laid-back and comfortable. Not intimidating at all and encourages learning.
