“I am an art major at Union University. For my spring break I got to spend a couple of hours meeting Mr. Aaron Sutton as well as painting with him at a local park on the beach. I am not an experienced painter, but it is one form of art that I enjoy doing. I have taken a couple of art lessons and classes while growing up, but I learned more from Mr. Sutton in just one lesson. I enjoyed viewing his work that was in his gallery as well as a few current pieces he was working on. He guided me while I painted a landscape of the beach. I got to experience techniques that he uses himself, which were very new to me. I had a great time and I was impressed that I painted the painting I did. Mr. Sutton was not only a good teacher, but also very encouraging and intentional. As an art student i appreciated that because pursuing art as a career is my goal and it is usually not an easy one. As soon as I got back home I bought certain things Mr. Sutton uses and I am now practicing the methods and techniques that he practiced with me. Overall my experience with him has given me way more confidence as a painter and helped me explore things about paint I did not know before.”

“Loved the class. Really enjoyed the location, the demonstration, and the instruction. Also really appreciated you providing the supplies. Definitely a fun thing to do at the beach.”
