Our New Art Studio
What Our Students Have to Say
A place where an artist’s dreams are realized!
Trevor and his mother Ingrid became a member of our art community in summer of 2011. He is in 8th grade and is becoming a power painter, attacking large scale canvases. He is proud member of the painting mafia at Beyond Brush Art Studio. Trevor is in the pre professional track and plans to apply to a B.F.A. program in painting.
“My time spent with Nalyne at Beyond Brush Art Studio was a fundamental point in the beginning of my art career. I am now currently enrolled at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, one of the top five art colleges in the United States.”
A place for pre-professional fine arts training for Elementary to High School students…
StuRyan, now 12th grader, is doing excellent in AP Studio Art. He said the foundations and Art History taught by Mrs. Gunggavakin have helped him enormously to propel him as a mover and shaker in the art world! He has been studying here since summer 2008. His inspiration comes from a wide range of master painters, from Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Hans Hofmann, Jackson Pollock, Wassily Kandinsky, Pablo Picasso, Mark Rothko, and Gerhard Richter. He is inspired by various artistic lineages, particularly, Impressionism, Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Action Painting, and Geometric Abstraction. Ryan plans to double major in Business Administration and Painting.
“Nalyne is one of the most passionate and talented artists I have had the pleasure of working with. I have always treasured the time I spent as her student. Not only did I learn the fundamentals of art, but I also developed a love for culture and ideas that I had never been exposed to. From cubism to organic pigments, Nalyne explores a variety of artistic techniques and history that no other school does…”
When A Young Artist Finds The Right Mentor, Everything Is Possible!
Brynne has been studying at Beyond Brush Art Studio since January 2009. She is now in 10th grade. She looks forward to attending art classes weekly. She says the studio is her sanctuary and oasis of artistic solitude where she can get away from it all. This latest piece is her crowning achievement! The painting is inspired by the sights, sound, and tactile memories of the Big Island. The piece is a fine balance of abstract and representational imageries of the Big Island. She is in the pre-professional track and plans to major in painting in college.
“I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend enrolling in classes at Beyond Brush Arts! Nalyne is an outstanding individual and an outstanding art instructor! I took classes with her ever since I was nine, and she’s gs top of my class. I owe it all to Nalyne!”
