She has exhibited work and curated shows in both New York and Chicago. Amanda is a landscape painter and paints “en plein air.” When she’s not practicing her passion, she is sharing it with others. “Teaching is my way of sharing the importance of the arts and its positive effect on humanity. I hope to provide art experiences that touch lives on a personal and social level.” At Tipsy Paint, she hopes that she can help everyone find the artist within.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT TIPSY
The instructors did a great job of showing us step by step on painting. They also walked around and helped us when we needed it. I made many mistakes, but the instructor helped me to fix things. I’m very happy with this experience!
Will come again!
A group of 6 friends attended a class at the Glenview location. We all had a marvelous time. The instructor (Krystyna) was very informative, gave us assistance when needed, and really made the class fun. We were all pleased with how our finished paintings came out. We are ready to book another outing! Highly recommend for large or small groups, and this is fun for females AND males! A+!!!
Don’t get me wrong, painting is HARD! But the teacher Jim was amazing, so patient, and really funny. We had a great time! (Just don’t let your poor painting skills ruin your fun!
It’s the experience and getting out of your comfort zone that matters!)
