Kim is an amazing teacher, she is so patient, friendly and professional. My teen son loved his class and I'm so happy for that. We started with Kim in her studio but due to covid and because we moved out of the area we continued with classes on Zoom. Amazing teacher.

Simply put, I just love Kim Votaw’s art.
Kim’s work brings out the beauty in her subjects, whether portrait, landscape or cityscape. Her seemingly effortless technique captures light, form, movement, conveying her love for the world and those of us who inhabit it.
We are fortunate to own a commissioned work of Kim’s, which she competed with great thoughtfulness, care and wit. We hang the oil painting in our home with pride and it has received countless compliments from visitors.

The class was awesome. It was a lot of fun. I have never painted before and you made it so simple that I could follow along and have a painting that people knew what it was when I was done. I will do this again. Thank yo for the fun!

What does an In-Person & Live Virtual KVA Class look like?

It looks like a bunch of KVArteests all creating, chatting, listening to music, & sharing their work. All students In-Studio & Zoomies can see each other & show their progress if they choose to throughout the class time. 

Students are encouraged to ask questions, & they receive instant feedback & personalized guidance through every brushstroke & pencil scratch. Virtual classes are great for students who would rather create from the comfort of their home, need to stay home that day from in-person class, or are a bit far from my studio but would still like to be in a community with fellow artists.

 

No matter if they are in-person or online, I love getting to know my students & watching them grow in their creative journey!
