" If you are fortunate enough to take a class or workshop from Linda, no matter what your age or skill level, you will leave inspired and motivated. She has a way of getting you to 'think outside the box' and explore your creative side. I can't think of a better way to enhance or begin your artistic adventure!"
- Shelley Sweeney
I have always been interested in painting but never found the time to take it seriously. Upon retirement I visited the White Rock Gallery where I saw a "Linda Jones" painting that really captured my attention. I wanted to be able to paint like that. The gallery gave me Linda's contact number and I applied to attend her art classes. That was ten years ago.
I find Linda's art classes very enjoyable. she has the unique ability to support and encourage her students without imposing her own style on them. She has helped to improve pieces in ways I would not had been able to on my own,
She is a very accomplished artist capable of working in any medium and expresses such energy and passion about her art to her students.
Linda knows how to encourage and guide each student on the path that (s)he is interested in pursuing.
She observes and listens, makes comments underlining one's strengths.
She gives suggestions and demonstrations that allow each individual to improve he is/her techniques and to grow as an artist. Linda is a wonderful teacher who has really helped me progress as as an artist.
I have grown up seeing Linda's work all over our hometown, Ladner, and have had the privilege of her teaching my two children in her art classes. My daughter who is 12 wants to become an artist and Linda is a huge mentor to her. She always looks forward to her classes and she has a great relationship with the kids!! I am so excited to see her their finished paintings!! Linda is an amazing teacher and friend!!! Thank You Linda!!
Thanks for your friendship.....
