"The tenets of my teaching are centered in years of experience working with conceptually-driven painterly abstraction and my love of layered materiality. All of my teaching concentrates on content, creativity, art making and of course, technique. I place a particular emphasis on helping students to discover their unique marks and concepts."

“Lisa creates an environment that replicates being with her in person. That is – a place to gather to not only learn amazing techniques but a place where we all feel connected in a time where there is such disconnect. Her teaching style exudes not only passion for her own work but a deep desire to share her vast knowledge with her students. In essence she has the uncanny ability to create contagious effervescence in every class regardless of the setting. I have taken many classes with Lisa and always come away with excited to continue my work and looking forward to her next class. If you want to feel connected to other like minded artist along with an exceptional teacher, I highly recommend studying with Lisa Pressman.”

"Lisa Pressman is a model of what a teacher can bring to the table for students. I have seen her teach, and I’m in awe of her ability to bring out the best. It also says a great deal that other teachers take her workshops. No one–no one–who takes a few workshops and then turns around to teach could come close to what a seasoned, generous, and brilliant teacher like Lisa has to offer.
Why would any student want to settle for less? "
