Regardless of your artistic goals or your level of expertise, drawing is essential. In these classes you will not only develop your skills, but learn to make creative decisions that make your work uniquely you. All of this in a fun supportive environment and at your own level.

I specialize in drawing media and colored pencil technique.

     About a year and a half ago I began my colored pencil journey.  Little did I know that it would forever change my life for the better : ))  When I began Anita Orsini’s colored pencil class I had absolutely no artistic background or experience.  The first thing I noticed was that even though many of the students had been in her class for quite a while (and were quite talented), I was made to feel very welcome. 

     Anita is an amazingly talented artist and teacher.  She is also very skilled at mixing various art media such as colored pencil with watercolor pencil, graphite, charcoal, pastel pencils, and more.  Anita can clearly take a student as far as he or she wants to go.  She shows patience as she guides each student, meeting them where they are in their journey.  I love the fact that the range of students runs from very beginner to quite professional and no one is judging anyone else.  It is also very inspiring because we all learn from each other.

     Not only do we learn a lot, but Anita sets a tone in her class that leads to camaraderie, enthusiasm, laughter, and more.  Given the nature of the world, it is so special to have an environment that takes my mind off of all of that and has me concentrating on my next “masterpiece!!!!!”  I am grateful for Anita and Artserve!!!!!!


     Anita Orsini, a wonderful friend, artist and teacher. She has a warm heart and connects with her students exactly where they need her, generously sharing her talent, skills and advice. 

Classes are always very enlightening and fun, students showing their work and getting direction and accolades from everybody.  There are anecdotes and a lot of laughter.  Anita has connected us

     Anita has taught me to seek artistic perfection, but she never lets me forsake the main reason I do art:  To have fun and to fulfill, through my art, a deep yearning to understand the world around me and its Creator.
