Welcome to Hope In Art Studio
Born an Artist or evolved?
Many people are under the false assumption that art is a gift that people are born with. Like some magical power that they wield, and command. This notion could not be further from the truth.
Art is a learned skill!
Painters, sculptors and any other kind of artist there is – all started out not knowing anything about art. No matter who the artist may be, there was a time in their life when they saw a painting, sculpture, or drawing and said to themselves, “wow that’s neat, how the hell did they do that?”Read More
Hi, my name is Lesley Shakespeare-Brogan and I own Hope In Art Studio. I began painting 25 years ago when a friend introduced me to painting in acrylics. Most of my experience is in Decorative painting (on furniture, wood, tin and glass) and this is what I offer most of my classes in. I also teach beginning colored pencil since this has also become one of my favorite mediums. I live in Fairport, NY with my husband and 2 children who are 21 and 17. I also teach half time at MCC in the Health Education Department. I enjoy the outdoors very much and get a lot of my inspiration from nature and animals. Art has enriched my life so much and the lives of my students. My Art has offered me hope and been so therapeutic for me through the years. Stop by and see the kinds of things we get inspired by. Beginners especially welcome!Read More
