Patsy's teaching style:

She feels her job as a teacher is to bring out whatever painter lurks inside each student, no matter what their individual mode of expression might be. This calls for plenty of individual attention. Patsy exposes students to as many techniques as possible so they can settle on those that best suit their painting needs.

Patsy loves EAC because . . .

It has a wonderful creative atmosphere that encourages students to share their work and learn from other students.
