“I’ve enjoyed attending Dale’s art classes for over fifteen years now.
His knowledge and skill with watercolors is exceptional. He's good at introducing students to all the basic principles; but also, to encourage them to try new things that may go beyond their comfort zone. Watching him do a demo can be almost magical. As a student I know there is always more to learn, and more magical paintings to create.”
– Kathleen Godshall, Studio Class
Kathy has been entering the Lake County (Indiana) Fair Art Competitions for nearly ten years. She has received a ribbon or two on her watercolors, pastels or acrylics, but this year she won in twelve different categories.
Kathy said she has been painting and drawing since she was a little girl. Her fondest childhood memories were summertime visits to grandma's. They would go into the garden and pick flowers. Then they would go into her grandma's studio and she would show Kathy how to paint the pretty little bouquet.
Kathy said she would paint off and on when her children were young, but she finally got serious about her art in the last fifteen years. Now that her kids have grown up and have their own lives she can focus on her passion. Thanks to Dale he has challenged her and encourage her to strive even harded.
