An Education in Artistry

Teresa Satola is a classically trained artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Production Design.  She also studied at the Schuler School of Art in Baltimore, MD.  It is said, “you cannot give away what you do not yourself possess.”

For 17 years, Teresa was proud to be the Artist in Residence and to teach classes at the historic Wagnalls Memorial, in Lithopolis, OH.  She taught classes in the Old Master’s technique of oil painting,  acrylic, watercolor, colored pencil and pastel.

Now residing in Ellijay, GA with her husband, she continues to work on her artwork and teach.

If you are interested in starting or working on your art, the supply lists below can get you started.

Icon Class at Our Lady of the Mountains

Our Lady of the Mountains will be starting new icon classes on Monday, September 10 at 4:00 p.m. in the dining hall. They will run 10 weeks. The cost is $200.00 for either class. The beginning class will be doing an icon of our parish patroness, Our Lady of Częstochowa.

Teresa’s icon class was a joy. Teresa is extremely talented and also a patient and dedicated instructor. Her step-by-step process and encouragement helped each of us through the project. I am so glad to have been able to participate. I plan on taking the advanced class as well. I encourage others to take advantage of this inspirational opportunity.
— Karen S. Webster, parishioner, Our Lady of the Mountains Roman Catholic Church

Advanced students will be doing an icon of their choice.  Any questions email Teresa at
