The Pansy House Studio is located on our beautiful country property between Blanchester and Clarksville Ohio. Having my studio in a rural setting lends itself to many opportunities in the area of art!
Class sizes range from three to six students. Holding smaller classes allows me to spend more individualized time with each student.

Class Art Supply Information If you are investing time, talent and money into an art class you should spend a little extra and get good quality supplies. There is a difference in pencils, papers and even erasers. Most art supplies will last for years and even decades! So you can’t go wrong getting a quality brand that will make your artistic experience much more pleasurable and successful. Here are some good brands that I like to see my students bring to class, there are many more good brands too, as in most things, price is an indicator:
drawing pencils– General’s, Kimberly, Derwent. I have seen a 12 pencil set in Derwent brand that range from 6B-4H which would be perfect for my classes.
white erasers– I have noticed that most white plastic erasers seem to work well. It’s also nice to have the pen type click erasers in various smaller sizes.
gray kneaded erasers– Design, Prismacolor brand, there are others that are good. A gray kneaded eraser is very important. I have noticed an eraser that is bluish in color, please do not get that eraser. We need a nice pliable eraser and the blue erasers are not pliable enough.
oil pastels– Pentel 50 count or other brands, the Pentel have a nice range of colors that everyone loves and the price is good.
regular chalk pastels– Nu-Pastel by Prismacolor is a good overall combination of a hard/soft pastel in many colors. For softer pastels price is the indicator. Good brands are Rembrandt, Sennelier and many more. Please do not buy the cheap brands of pastels.
acrylic paints– Liquitex, Golden, Blick brand

I accept cash or check. The full amount can be paid in advance or the first day of class. You also have the option to pay a deposit of half the amount of the fee the first day of class and the remaining balance will be due half way through the session.
