I have taken watercolor classes from a number of different teachers, all of whom were good in their specific styles. However, there is something unique about the approach that Laura takes. She's a precision artist who delights in the details of nature. Whether you wish to pursue watercolor with a looser style or more in the vein of Laura's work, there is nothing quite so instructive as the step by step lessons she embraces. Her approach seems to work with all levels of ability. I have learned more in the twelve weeks of lessons with Laura than at any time in the past seven years of painting. I come away from her classes thrilled with my accomplishments, and having spent a few hours with a perfectly delightful and fun person.

Realism infused with energy.
As a master teacher, Laura Eden meets all students at their individual level.  Whether you are a beginner or advanced painter, whether you need each step demonstrated or a critique of a recent body of mature work, Laura has the empathy, instinct and skill to help bring you to your next level of achievement.  I have taken both group and private lessons from Laura over many years. In addition, I have attended numerous painting demonstrations at art workshops and gallery openings. Laura is engaging, an effective communicator, and a patient listener.   She is well organized and prepared; more over, she is fun and encouraging as a teacher.  Laura is that rare painter who is also an outstanding teacher. Or is she an outstanding teacher who is also a gifted artist?  Many of her students have gone on to become successful painters in their own right. And nobody cheers them on better than Laura Eden.
