Paivi Eerola from Finland – Your Art Teacher

Coming from the land of Marimekko (fashionable textiles) and Kone (smart elevators), I help people to bring more freedom and more meaning into their art making. Color has been the reason why I left my career in technology and started a new one in visual art. I see color in music, words, and ideas. I see color on rainy days, in dark shadows and on blank canvases. When my left brain wants to hold back, I have a bag of tricks to make it co-operate with the right brain.

From the Students

It gave me the confidence to ‘just start,’ I’d never used acrylics before and simply didn’t know where or how to start. I did three pieces during the ten days and was really interested to see the change in my style/ability. I now find myself looking for opportunities to get my paints out, I’m looking at colours differently. Creativity has always been important to me, but this course has brought it to an entirely new level.

Christina Mitchell, Nicaragua

This workshop has helped me with composition as well as with color. It has also helped me to see what I need to improve upon regarding approach to painting. I want to be more painterly and using the colors the way Paivi has demonstrated is encouraging for me to try.

Elaine Wirthlin, USA

I learned a lot of mixing colors and fell in love with that. I see so many possibilities there … an adventure and a whole new world. I became “hungry” and hope to learn many new things at the time to come.

Pirkko-Liisa Mannoja, Finland

I enjoyed the workshop and the exercises very much. I learned how to be free with color and paints and mixing and will continue on with what I learned.
