“Such tremendous preparation and organization led to an incredibly successful art experience. I would highly recommend that anyone who wants to learn about acrylic painting should work with Julianna Poldi. She’s extraordinary.”
Tammy Ashworth, MFA, La Quinta, CA
“Julianna has a special way of working with each student on an individual basis, taking whatever time is needed, ‘meeting’ that student fully, in present time. It was in this way that she was able to help me to not only identify but to get over my own personal ‘stumbling blocks’, to begin to really clear away some obstacles that were getting in the way of my own painting process.”
Jillian Crocker, Berkeley, CA http://www.jilliancrocker.com/
“The 3 hours I spent with Juliana Poldi were GREAT! She led me in ways of painting, all the while listening to the directions I wanted to go. I completely trusted her guidance. She praised my loose strokes, she showed me simple techniques that drew more light and texture to the surface, it was a time of movement, abundance and wonderful discovery for me. Working with her reinforced my direction and strengthened my belief in my power to create.”
Kathy Hunter, Boulder, Colorado
I have been a private student of Julianna's for almost 2 years. I had absolutely no experience prior to my first lesson. Her ability to communicate the basics as well as more advanced methods of expressing on canvas has exceeded my expectations each and every time we work together. I have actually been approached by several people who would like to buy my work and have even been asked to do a commission piece. I can honestly say that I never in my wildest dreams would have expected the results this early in my painting life. It is thanks to Julianna Poldi!

My passion is working with individuals of all sorts who come to me to learn the basics of abstract acrylic painting on paper. Then there are those who not only want to learn the basics but wish to discover their unique creative voice on canvas. Joyce Bell Freeman is one of those outstanding painters, who I had the pleasure of assisting. She continues to paint at her studio at Location 1980 in the Newport Beach area.
Contact me for programs designed specifically for youth ages 9 and up.
