Priscilla first fell in love with PWAT when she and her sister Kayla attended a class together. Though she didn't consider herself an artist at the time she felt at home with the whole concept of art and how it strengthened the relationships of all in the room. It wasn't long after, that her and her husband Britt started on the road to opening their very own studio! She considers herself very blessed to be apart of this amazing company!
Breathe and believe, and paint from the heart! Amy loves encouraging creative freedom in her classes, all while offering guidance as your personal comedic and energetic spirit guide. If you haven't heard her cow jokes you're in for a treat. And if you have, you're also in for a treat (they age like a fine wine). A lover of jokes and a passion for art, she can't wait to paint with you!

Dante DiPasquale, who currently resides in San Antonio, Texas, was born in Boise, Idaho on October 13, 1994. He attended and graduated from San Antonio College where he attained his Associates in Art. Many of his influences come from both past and present. His love of art, cinema, books, mythology, and philosophy are subject matters he chooses to investigate, while at the same time comprising his own stories. Constantly jumping back and forth between paint and pencil, Dante works with multiple mediums and chooses what may work best depending on the type of image or story that needs to be told. He has exhibited across San Antonio in both group and solo exhibitions with his latest being Metamorphosis, a narrative of an individual’s journey through harrowing events.
