Teaching out of the historic Robert Armstong home, also known to locals as the Westmacott House in Millbrook, Owner and Operator, Kate Segriff, specializes in giving the gift of art to others. She has developed a very effective technique to help new artists get started in oil painting that has brought her students to tears times (of joy not frustration).  Some have gone on to become prolific painters, applying what they have learned for the joy of it and even for set painting in theatre work. Working in small classes of 5 or less she takes them from blank canvas to finished product in 4 hours, and sends them off with a finished painting and an colourful instruction booklet on what they've learned. Kate likes to work on landscapes, usually with at least one man made item to create contrast, interest and perspective. Working in vivid colours and focusing on lightscapes her students are encouraged to have fun and exaggerate their favorite things in the subject matter. Working toward a full-time career in Art after she retires from the 38 year fundraising project that is going to pay for it, Kate hopes to expand her portfolio and teaching hours at the B&B and create an online teaching presence.
