Students should have some past experience in drawing to take the painting class as we usually draw before painting.

We will paint a watercolor landscape and still life in acrylic and copy of a Master in oil. We will also work in various media including wood block prints, scratch board, collage, mixed media

*Painting supplies will be provided for an additional $20 supply fee/semester .


This is for the serious Art student who desires to pursue Art in college. We will be concentrating on developing individual style as well competency ib a variety of media. We will also read and discuss Art History.


This is a high school level class, although I have had students younger who went through it. We will use the Glencoe’s  Bon Voyage workbook and textbook to do oral and written exercises in class and at home. We will practice conversation as well. 


This is the level 2 high school level French class. We will finish using the Bon Voyage curriculum and then begin the Glencoe French 2 text and workbook, Abord

Here are some comments from a few of my students the:

“Learning the fundamentals of drawing, and copying art styles different from what I was comfortable with, really stretched my skills.    Mrs. Wright taught me the importance of careful study and observation. Sticking with and completing challenging assignments, along with the overall blessing of a loving Christian teacher, grew me in character as much as in my artistic abilities!”
~Hannah D., Drawing I and II


“Lisa Wright as my art teacher was a profound positive influence! Her Christian tutelage was a joy and a blessing.   The enthusiasm with which she approaches art and teaching is inspirational. Some assignments may have been tough, but they have made me a more confident artist, and I can now better use my art as a gift for others. She was an answer to prayer for my art education!”
~ Caroline D., 17; Drawing I and II

  1. I am grateful to all of you who came out to hear me talk Monday night. Thank you for your encouraging feedback. I am so happy that I was able to “inspire and encourage you in your creativity”.

  2. Summer Art Classes
    I have an ad in the May Good Health magazine listing two 2 hour classes -drawing and painting. Due to the overwhelming response, and because some who are interested work, I am adding Saturday classes. They are beginning Wednesday June 9th and Saturday June 12th running 8 weeks on Wednesdays and Saturdays 10-12 and 1-3 .

    They will be held at the Norfolk Fitness and Wellness Center,Senior Health office, in the multi-purpose room.
    The schedule is Drawing(the same class) offered either on Wednesdays and Saturdays 10-12 and Painting(watercolor and oils) 1-3. The Saturday class will have an emphasis on glorifying God through our creativity.
    The price for the classes are $90/class for the eight week two hours/week-total of 16 hours, plus a supplies fee.

    For those of you signed up to attend the SAF with Dr Oz at the Hampton Convention Center- I will have booth there with some of my artwork and registration material. Please come by and visit. If you’re not attending PLEASE SIGN UP HERE NOW as the conference is sold out with more than 1000 attending, and my classes, which will have a limited number, MAY FILL UP!!

    Hi, Lisa – I just saw the article in Good Health about the classes, but it left out the location of the classes. I’d be interested in a basic drawing class on Wednesday, if the distance isn’t too great to travel. Thank you.

  4. Hi Lisa,
    My 17 year daughter, Nicole, would like to attend your Summer Saturday classes. Could you let me know the details and if you’ve added her to the class already? She’s looking forward to it!

  5. Classes start this Saturday!! 10-12 Drawing 1-3 Painting.
    If you want to take a class but can’t make it all 8 weeks you may come when you can!$15/class). space is still available call or email me if you’re interested.
