“Have easel.  Will travel.”  
Amy Waldrop (“The Barefoot Impressionist”) is a prolific American Impressionist Painter - a creative spirit, currently living in Clifton, Virginia.   She began painting at the age of 43, eventually starting her own teaching studio where, more than ten years later, she continues to learn and develop her skill while sharing her intuitive approach to creativity with artists of all ages and skill levels.

Students learn to relax, focus, shed self-defeating negative thought patterns, clear blocks, develop self-confidence, and understand the importance of perspective (from both artistic and critical thinking standpoints).

Amy believes that the artistic process IS the art and that there are no mistakes in life or learning, only new experiences. 
Amy's only paints what moves her.  She [...]
