Excellent event. The instructor was cordial, qualified and a very good teacher. She carefully demonstrated techniques, encouraged every participant and took time to provide individual support and instruction.

ARTISTS
Bryttany Mack
Bryttany, unlike most artists, wasn't always interested in pursuing art, let alone painting from a small age. Her story is a bit more unique. She always had the innate ability to see, but as fate would have it her body was forced to catch up when she was inadvertently placed into an art class. From there, her love affair with art began and with time her passion for painting came.

Being a native to Atlanta, it seemed God had everything divinely ordained that she go to SCAD Atlanta. Speaking through those around her, allowing her to fall in love with the campus during the tour. Post SCAD, she self taught herself to not only brand herself as a painter, but the essence a true artist. She expanded her repertoire to photography, 3D modeling, and illustration; God blessed her with the ability to expand her territory of expression.

Within her art career, she has been a part of three art shows (Black Girl Art Show, Conception Art Show, and a nonprofit art show for Feed Thee. She entered contests and completed personal projects for customers helping their visions come to life.

Bryttany Mack is available for private bookings

Available M, T, TH & F (any time), most Saturdays from 10am until 4pm, most Sundays after 1pm, and until 4pm on Wednesdays

Private tutoring, weddings, portraits, and events.

Jessica Lily
Jessica Lily has been working professionally in the arts for over 20 years. She was formerly a photographer and is currently a graphic designer and illustrator, working for clients nationally. She returned to watercolor as a medium in 2021 following a deep love for water based media in her youth and college career, where she studied Fine Arts at the University of Georgia.

Her body of watercolor illustrations are colorful, playful and inviting - she loves to paint animals that come to life deep with soul, and portraits that capture the essence of a person. She has a deep enjoyment of studying art, talking shop about art materials and process, and believes that every teacher is a student, and every student is a teacher.

Jessica Lily is available for private bookings

I am a middle art teacher for a homeschool enrichment program. My students are ages 9 to 13. I strive to teach them that their age is not a barrier to creating complex, stunning art. I was searching for inspiration images for our first watercolor unit that emphasized the use of the untouched paper and negative space to provide the light. I stumbled upon a reel of a similar image and decided to try my hand at creating my version as the prototype for the class. This piece turned out beyond anythin

Ailsa Craig is an island in the Irish Sea off the Scottish coast. Its a magical place and the colours of the sea and sky can be exquisitely beautiful. One of my favourite places to paint. This is one of a series of paintings I have done of the island.

This was painted for my granddaughters, who went to Finland last December. The photo I used is one taken by my daughter in law. I loved the way the lights created a green swirl in the sky, framed by the ink black trees and white snow.
