I very much enjoy working with seniors and older adults. Seniors benefit from art activities in many ways. They look forward to the socialization and getting in touch with their inner artist. I teach at many area facilities. Call 321-749-1153 or Email me for more information.

The Artist Discovery Coach
Debi Pettigrew helps people discover their personal forms of creative expression in the visual arts. Many of us are so busy doing things just to keep up in our complex world, that we don’t take the time to explore and express our natural ability to create.
Teaching art has taught Debi that there is an artist in everyone. You may not know it because drawing or painting hasn’t come naturally to you or you’ve never really tried, or no one encouraged you enough to help awaken your artist within.
Unleashing your creative potential has many benefits, relaxation and stress reduction, the excitement and joy of creating something uniquely yours, developing new skills, and learning to see things differently.
