For my April Lady of the Month I am featuring my Scenic Design teacher at Columbia College, Jackie. I think my education at Columbia was pretty special because any classes that had to do with my major were very small and we were given a lot of one on one attention. I took several classes with Jackie but my favorite was scenic painting. It was incredible to work on large panels and back drops, splashing around watered down house paint. She taught us painting techniques that I still use today, especially in my newer paintings. Getting that hands on experience with Jackie was invaluable.
