About the instructor:
Priti was fortunate to learn painting from a very young age. The hustle-bustle of everyday life, nature, city life, suburbs, people, seasons, colors, and moods are the inspiration. She works with several media. Using different media and the way she uses colors in both realistic and abstract paintings has contributed to her style. Her work represents many years of studying as well as personal artistic growth.
Today, she offers high-quality fine art instruction, the curriculum includes the use of several media - pencil, charcoal, soft pastels, oil pastels, watercolors, and acrylics. She teaches all mediums and all genres of art, adding to her student’s painting concepts via selective use of design elements, color, and composition. Many of her younger students went on to study further at MassArt and RISDI.
