   Rita Curtis

Rich Color! Bold Brushwork!

Rita Curtis brings a treasure trove of creativity and skill to teaching. Art critic Brian Sherwin says, “Rita’s bold landscape paintings draw us in with a striking use of color. Her figure, portrait, and still life paintings are marked by the same level of vibrant intensity. A pleasure to observe.”
