Nothing is more important to the fledgling artist than someone who nurtures their creative dreams. Finding a mentor who not only loves to teach, but lives her dream of being an artist, can be the opportunity of a lifetime.

Sarah Holl is an artist, teacher and mentor with the passion and patience to foster even the most tentative of students. Like her own artwork, she is vibrant, colorful and inspiring. It's this energy of playfulness and possibility that has drawn many new students to her weekly figure drawing classes, held at the Guyer Barn, behind her Hyannis studio.

Students of Sarah Holl's figure drawing classes discuss what they have learned from their dynamic art teacher.

Artist Karen Ryder admits to having a "sketching habit" that once satisfied her constant desire to capture people both resting and in action. But, in 2008, she decided sketching wasn't enough anymore and looked for a local figure class that would fit into her schedule outside of office hours.

She met Sarah Holl at an open studio event on Pearl Street, in Hyannis, and found her new art teacher. "I was both excited and nervous on my first night. The last time I'd been in a figure class was back in my college days. Sarah made me feel welcome and comfortable. The class was a mix of all different kinds of people."
