Raney’s classes are fun, low key, very informative and helpful – no matter your current level or medium. Raney works in pastel, watercolor, oil and acrylic and is equally adept at them all. Her style is abstract to the representational. The diversity of her talent and natural teaching ability make your class time an exceptional value and the mountain scenery creates a beautiful surrounding in which to work.
