I studied art for 6 years and graduated with a BFA. I never really felt like an artist, I knew there were skills I just didn't have. After a year of study at Mission Renaissance I received more painting skills than I ever imagined. When people see my paintings and ask if I have a degree, I tell them I do have a degree from a university (but it's a piece of paper only), my education in painting is purely from Mission Renaissance. It's truly first class and the key to unlocking the artist in everyone!
