Welcome To Jody Ball Art

Heron’s Hiding

The days are getting shorter
  and that means that it is time for school and a few fine art classes offered at the Pansy House Studio! I am holding my popular drawing class, a pet portrait class and an outdoor landscape class this fall. Please look at the class descriptions in the menu and if you would like to attend one or more please contact me. I usually hold seasonal classes and the schedule changes on a quarterly bases.
As always, I hold Paint Parties at the Pansy House Studio throughout the year, usually on Friday nights but if you have a group and a different time in mind please ask! They are always a fun time for all. Check out the details under the “Paint Parties” tab. All class sizes are limited, please sign up early to insure your spot.

Heron’s Hiding, (the painting shown here) is an oil painting that I painted using a palette knife. It was painted on location at Hebble Creek nature preserve in Fairborn Ohio where I had to get a special permit to get onto the property. I remember how beautiful in was with so much wildlife and nature all around. Just outside of the preserve was a busy highway that drowned out the sounds of nature but it was an enjoyable experience regardless!

I hold paint parties on Friday nights when time allows and occasionally other days and times of the week. Think about celebrating a birthday or special occasion or coming out to treat yourself to a fun and relaxing evening after a hard week at work. They are always so much fun! You can find out about paint party details in the menu or check them out here…Paint Parties!


 This website is dedicated to the memory of my parents Joe and Marcia Manning who believed in my artistic capabilities even as a young child. During that time they allowed me to take art classes from a prominent artist and teacher in my hometown. I still remember that first lesson in her front yard on a sunny day …”shadows”… and I teach those same important concepts I was taught in my first “real art class”, even now.
