Shauna is known for her positive, effective teaching style. Her goal as a teacher is to share the techniques and information that helped her the most in her own artistic journey. Demonstrations are informative and effective, taking a blank canvas to an established painting while discussing the thought process along the way. Shauna has the gift of being able to describe what it is she is thinking as she develops a painting, and each demonstration gives new and useful information.
