I LOVE taking online art classes. 

Going to class at any hour of the day or night, wearing whatever you want to class, and sitting with your cat beside you, what’s not to like!

My art has grown by huge increments by taking these classes.

 While there are many teachers out there, one of my very favorite is Pam Carriker. 

Her teaching skills are fantastic and she is a generous and big hearted soul .

 I am proud to call her both teacher and friend.

I first encountered Pam , as a fellow classmate , in a collage class. 

When I heard that she was teaching online, I jumped at the chance…and have jumped several times since.


 I have learned in her background classes , her gray scale class, but my favorite classes are her Portrait classes. 
Pursuing Portraits and Still Pursuing Portraits are some of my favorites and by taking them, my portrait skills have moved forward. 

My tips to those taking her Portrait class are to practice, practice, and practice some more.

That repetition is where you will find your own style.

 And don’t judge your efforts ,just keep producing and with dedication to the art, you will be greatly rewarded.

A bonus of the Pursuing Portraits class was the genesis of a private Facebook group we formed with students from the class so that we could continue sharing our art work , our ideas, and keep our little community alive.

 We welcome future and current students of Pursuing Portraits to join us in our facebook group, too.
