Meet our Artists!


Richa Tedoldi

Richa Tedoldi is a local artist, business owner, and downtown New Bedford bartender. She was born and raised in the greater Walpole area, but now calls the South Coast home. She graduated from UMass Dartmouth with a Bachelor of Science in Visual Design. Her works are varied, and her mediums are many. She has a passion for art and history, and it shows in her painting style. An avid wine enthusiast and mixologist, she has an appreciation for the way art and libations can inspire one another. Always a professional with a knack for training and instructing, she's very excited to dig into her latest venture as a painting instructor

Ann Miller

Ann Miller has enjoyed sharing her love of art and painting throughout the local area over the past 20 years. Her whimsical approach puts a smile on her students faces. As one of her many accomplishments, Ann ran the art program for inmates at the Bristol County House of Corrections (pretty interesting huh?). When you complete  one of Ann's classes you will be amazed at your own creativity. She is a natural and a wealth of information. You will leave her class not only having experienced a fun time but surely wanting to book one of Ann's classes again.


Autumn Cyr

Gigi Cunningham

Gigi is a full time graphic designer with a love of photography and all things artsy. She lives by the philosophy "Learn something new everyday, and the best way to learn is through play." When you take one of Gigi's classes you will come away with a smile and an interesting piece of art to hang on your wall or give as a gift. Gigi sees the world in shapes, anything can be created using the basic shape of a circle, square or triangle with variations of each.

Come have fun and play with some colors, brushes and see where your imagination and Gigi's guidance takes you!

Blaine Bacchiocchi

 Blaine is a local Artist and Art Teacher. During the day she works at an Educational Collaborative that services K-12 students who have been diagnosed with emotional, behavioral neuro-developmental and learning disabilities. She studied Fine Arts at the Art Institute of Boston where she dabbled in many 2D and 3D media, as well as studying watercolor painting in and around Florence, Italy. Blaine tends to use humor to create a relaxing atmosphere that allows her students to let the creative process work for them.


She looks forward to guiding you on your journey to finding your inner Artist. You will enjoy some laughs and may even learn a thing or two!
