Getting Rave Reviews

“Missy Gentile’s Abstract Art class is incredibly freeing! This class inspired me to think outside the box and divert from the traditional conventions of what we think art is supposed to be.

Missy’s teaching style is encouraging, supportive, and enlightening. She inspires you to reach beyond your comfort zone and not overthink your artwork in order to tap into a different realm of your creativity. This class is pure joy!”
