" It is not about creativity, it is about the person you are becoming while you are creating" - Charlie Peacock
At Scrivener Art Workshops we believe everyone grows from expressing their creativity. We provide a safe environment and encourage a sense of community and sharing.
Through many demos we provide a "show and tell" way of learning. Students are given constructive feedback from the instructor and students.
As a veteran participant in art workshops and a retired educator/ evaluator I am pleased to highly recommend Patt as an exceptional art instructor. Inspiration combined with perfect preparation, presentation, pacing and production were excellent.Her interpersonal skills are both encouraging and effective dealing with challenges with wit and wisdom. I would welcome opportunities to learn from Patt in the near future.

I really enjoyed my 2 day ‘Playshop’ with Patt. She is creative and fun, and highly committed to helping her students learn whatever they need to take the next steps forward in their painting. I really appreciated that during our 2 days in her studio, she never once spent time working on her own pieces, other than to take them to the next stage/phase, to help us better understand what she was teaching us.Though much of her work and art items in her studio were for sale, she never once spent our class time promoting her own wares and I can’t tell you how much I appreciated that. I felt that her time was our time and she was most generous with it.

Patt has a wide variety of ideas to apply to individual work. I was impressed with the many extras as we worked eg. small bottles to write with/outline with. very supportive as we worked.

Patt has a great balance between direction and encouraging creativity. Instruction is clear and organized. Loved being introduced to strategies for working with acrylic.

Learning to draw and paint can be challenging and making mistakes is part of the process. It is my goal to ensure that my workshops nurture students and encourage them to take risks and reach for new levels of achievement. If students mess up that is a good thing - it means they are not playing safe!
