Private Art Lessons for Adults

 "I want to explore something different..... I need a little time to nurture my soul..... I really want to paint something for my child's room.... my sister.... my first art show....."

I hear so many good reasons for stepping out to make that first move... or to respark creativity. 

I work with adults on a very flexible basis. If you want one-on-one time to explore acrylic painting... or ... if you would rather paint in your own studio and only want the occasional consultation, arrangements can be made.

Times are generally, 11am or 1pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The cost is $40 an hour.
I schedule the same time slot for you each week.

We can meet every week, every other week, or schedule consultations once a month. We can work either inside the gallery surrounded by art or outside in the studio garden surrounded by nature.

.... currently taking sign-ups. Contact me at if you have questions or want to take a studio tour to see if this is a good fit for you.


Five original paintings by Rose Bryant at Art Up Front Street

 Shown are a few of my original paintings ... variations in style and technique. I love painting with whatever energy I gather for that painting. There are five with this post ...Some are smaller. Some are larger. Some are more abstract, some are more representational.

If you are planning for winter and looking for color to lighten your time and place, let me know by email to 

If needed, I can take a video of the art as it looks on the studio walls and then send it to you. Or if you want to facetime live, we could do that, too. Shipping is available. Also, safe pick-up can be arranged at the studio. We are open five days a week. Tuesday - Saturday.

Each one shown here is $475, painted on canvas, and wired for hanging.

Sometimes "paintings" just appear, but most often inspiration seeps in....from a friend, from a place, from a conversation, from an emotion. 

"Snow Street" is inspired by our quaint neighborhood street on a fresh snowy day. I took a photo just after only a few cars had traveled down the street (no snow plow yet). It was a beautiful quiet soft time.

"On My Table" was painted during a painting time/ art lesson with a dear friend (someone who brought her children to my art classes years ago). The fun thing about this exercise was that we both used a 2 foot brush to keep ourselves from getting too tight with details. That was SUPER fun (and funny).

"Color Energy" started as a black and white experiment. Then other things "appeared". Eventually the painting worked it's way to color segments in the composition.

"Distant Light" was painted with a friend in a "lesson/ painting session". I love the process of painting with others. My friend had a photo he had taken of a beautiful spot... and we both worked from the same imagery. I learned. He learned. Conversations about approach are so enlightening. And then seeing how we each moved through the painting process was (some word that I don't have in my vocabulary).

"Music" was painted one night at the studio when we had a wonderful a capella group visiting (The Afternotes!). They came to practice at the studio. Wonderful! A few other visual artists came and made art. A few friends came just to listen. It was so special. So many energies coming together to be inspired by the other person's energy. Wow. We will do this again as soon as Covid is done!
