“For years, I’ve longed to take a painting workshop from Tracy Verdugo. Tracy is a beautiful and generous soul and a wonderful artist, who has a special gift for teaching visual art to people who don’t consider themselves visual artists... I’ve admired her devotion to teaching for YEARS. Tracy, you are a gift. Thank you for this day. I’m going to sleep with my fingernails caked with paint, and my imagination full of color.”

- Elizabeth Gilbert

What my students are saying...


I've taken two workshops with Tracy and loved them both. She provides just the right balance of guidance with encouraging you to find your own expression. She is very generous with sharing her artistic knowledge. Tracy is very positive and uplifting which provides a magical space to paint your heart out!

-Silky Hart


Tracy, I love being in your energy and I'm not sure how to express that in words. I only know I have loved being in your classes and have learned and grown in so many ways just being with you. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts. You are a blessing!‬

-Karen Johnson


You are very generous with your content and I don’t feel like you hold anything back. I love that you show your own vulnerability in things that don’t go quite as you would like because that’s real and honest. It’s not about a show but about real love for teaching and wanting your students to feel successful.

A free class for you.

Abstract Approaches is my latest little freebie to get you started.

In this two part class we will begin by taking a look at my 'Embracing the Contrast' approach. It's a method that I've developed to help get you all through those annoying "stuck places" and allow you to build momentum and become more confident with taking your next move.
