Student comments:

If you want to learn pastels then Lynda Collins Pauley should be your teacher. I had never touched pastels before taking a class from Lynda and after three years with her was asked by a gallery to have my first one-man show, 90% of which were pastel landscapes. Need I say more!

Lynda's hands on and her one on one method of teaching has taught me to not only see but also understand color, design, and composition. Since studying at her Prairies Edge Studio, I have been juried into numerous art shows and exhibitions including twice at the prestigious Cincinnati Art Club.

Lynda has been my pastel teacher for 4 years. With Lynda, I have gone from knowing nothing about painting in pastel to selling my work for a profit. She has a great sense of composition and color. She also knows when to be patient and when to push. I often think of her encouraging words, "Punch it up! Go for it!"

I have been in Lynda Pauley's class for several years and I feel I have grown a great deal as an artist from her instruction. Serious art students will find her classes very helpful and inspiring.

Lynda is well versed in working with pastels and is an articulate and effective teacher.  I enjoyed all my classes in Lynda's beautiful Prairie's Edge Studio.

Lynda Collins-Pauley is an accomplished artist and teacher.  She has a keen eye for color and detail.  She helps her students not only to understand what they are truly seeing so that they can translate those impressions onto canvas or paper, but she also teaches the techniques necessary for a "painterly" touch.  She is a very knowledgeable teacher for both the beginner as well as the experienced painter.

Lynda provides personalized individual attention to your work whether you are a beginner or experienced painter to help you advance your skills in a small group setting. Eye for color is amazing.

In the four years plus that I have been taking lessons with Lynda, I can truthfully say, my ability has improved with every lesson. She is a very competent instructor and communicator. She constantly challenges you and you grow in the process. If your desire is to increase your artistic ability or purchase some outstanding artwork, Lynda Collins Pauley is the person to contact.
