Are you thinking, “Gosh, I’m just no good at painting…” or “I’ve never painted before and it looks too hard.”

Painting REALLY can be for everyone, including those who have NEVER painted before...

As an Art Teacher, the most common issues I hear are that a student may feel like they aren't artistic enough to paint, or that in other classes they have experienced frustration and felt ignored. I can fully understand how beginning a new adventure with art can seem overwhelming with these feelings, especially if you have a bad memory connected to your artistic attempts...

Let me tell you, you are definitely not alone in these feelings, and it is My Job to craft classes geared exactly to your level as an Adventurous Beginner! I am here to fill the educational gaps you may have experienced in the past with patience and detail, which is signature to my teaching style. I am professionally trained and am experienced in supporting your physical and emotional journey through the entire painting process! Online or in person, I will make painting digestible and customizable for you.

You will be amazed at all the little tips and tricks you will learn in each and every class and kit with Blu Moon Art Studio. We will go over each step, from how to hold your brush to mixing special colors,  and the best part is that the class and kit structure can allow you to go at your own pace. Many of the paintings will be sketched out for you too!


Melissa was awesome! Answered questions and was very patient! Had a great time! Will be joining the fun again!

I have taken two classes with Melissa as the instructor and have enjoyed both. One was a full length class, with a large group; one was short and sweet, with a small group. The pace she keeps is good for me, and she clearly explains the techniques as you go along. Both classes she offered yummy food as well. I’ll keep coming back.

So much fun! I know nothing about painting but came out feeling like an artist for a day. Wonderfully patient and kind instruction. I will definitely be back with my kids to try the kids class!
