PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS 2023
Art Collector & Connoisseur
"As an honored owner/collector of several of Brenda Andrews's artworks, I am excited to see her offering a series of studio art classes at the Center for the Arts, Escondido. As an artist, Brenda's works are beautiful, intellectually engaging, tactile and sublime. Her knowledge of art history is vast, and her ability to share that knowledge in lay terms as well as practical ones is impressive, to say the least. Those taking any classes with her will be lucky to have the opportunity to learn from a master artist and instructor who is creative, accomplished, ebullient, and well-traveled."
Passionate Art Student – Private Sessions
"I have had the unique experience of having Brenda Andrews as a private art instructor and mentor. I am not a trained artist, yet I am drawn to paint. She has given me confidence in my abilities by teaching me how to look through an artist's eyes and understand the foundational aspects of composition, color, and light. She has also taught me how to draw using a guide from something that appeals to me, applying different techniques for my expression. I recently finished a painting and gave it as a gift; I was proud to paint my name on it. I cannot say enough about her ability to teach individually, presenting a wide variety of methodologies to achieve the artistry I desire. She works with one's unique skills and then helps you to create a beautiful piece of art. She is a lovely artist who has taught at top Universities and has been commissioned to do master works of art worldwide. "
