Meet the Teachers
Beech Tree Studio in Five Locations
I have always appreciated the distance that many people travel to the class in Geneva, but when a particularly brutal Chicago winter kept artists home, I realized it was time to bring the studio to the artists.
Beech Tree Studio is happy to introduce a stable of colored pencil instructors who mentor new students, and challenge those who are already accomplished artists. And while each offers individual direction on technique and color, we all encourage that unique quality that only the artist can bring to his own work.
