“Everybody has the ability to create art – it’s just finding the courage to try.”  Ted Matz









































What Ted’s students have told The Rickie Report:

“I just wanted to let you know that you are one of the people I am thankful for. You are a very patient, perspicacious and encouraging teacher and a critic and you have really changed painting for me in the last few months.  Not only have I reached the point where I can be more satisfied with my results, but the whole process has become more enjoyable for me.  Thank you for being such a generous teacher!”   JB

“Ted has taught me invaluable life lessons painting together. His supportive approach and teaching style allows me to learn completely as my authentic self. He provides safety in vulnerability and constructive feedback to hone my skills. Ted has supported me to live and flourish in my art, leading to my acceptance into the art program of my choice.  Learning with Ted has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and our time together goes well beyond our lessons. He’s taught me to believe in myself and to never give up – to love how I feel when I create art and to live up to what make me, me.”  BB



I have studied Watercolor Painting with Ted several ways –  in a plein air class in Maine , and both online and in person elsewhere. He is a wonderful, thorough, comprehensive teacher, who has taken me to new levels of understanding in color theory, reflection, depth and shadows, paint handling/technique. In addition, he is generous with his vast knowledge, extremely patient and supportive of his student, and has an awesome sense of humor that puts one at ease”. BMO


Ted calls Lake Worth, Florida, his home. He teaches workshops and online classes in watercolor, oil and acrylic, abstract, and plein air painting.  Ted was the co-founder and past President of The New School of the Visual Arts in Jupiter, Florida, and was formerly the Chair of Painting and Drawing at the Lighthouse Art Center Museum and School of Art in Tequesta, Florida.

Ted has taught at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, Florida, and the Boca Museum School of Art in Boca Raton, Florida. He has conducted classes and workshops in Michigan and Vermont, and currently does domestic and international workshops in Massachusetts, Maine, Italy, France and, recently, in Cuba. Ted majored in watercolor at Eastern Michigan University, studied at Kendall College of Art and Design, and held design-related positions with Jacobson’s Store, Inc, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Lord & Taylor.

Ted founded and chaired the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Annual Lighthouse Art Center’s Plein Air Festival in 2014-2016 in Tequesta/Jupiter Florida and served as a consultant to the 2017 Festival. The event drew 50 nationally and internationally recognized plein air artists who competed for over $10,000 in awards.

“Sky” Atmospheric Series” by Caryl Pomales

• Creatives who want to explore what it means to create freely and to gain a better understanding of the elements that make for a more dynamic painting


• Artists with basic experience will find this a perfect place to transform their abstract painting practice, while more experienced artists will expand their skills.








“Golden Bluff” Travel Series by Caryl Pomales

Perhaps you have photo images that you’re dying to translate into an abstract piece of art or maybe you are inspired by other works of art that you admire, and want to create your own unique piece of art within your own voice—but you’re not sure how.  I love to travel, and I find that painting abstract landscapes is the perfect way to forge a deeper connection with places that I love. Let me teach you how to do it!





“Storm” Atmospheric Series by Caryl Pomales




Here’s how it works:

• Each morning, you’ll receive a short pre-recorded video with a lesson and demonstration.


• Then, each day, I’ll go live in a Zoom session at 12:00 p.m. EST for an hour.


○ During this time, I’ll paint and teach you about how to create a striking and bold abstract landscape using a harmonious color scheme, large shapes, and the power of your mind and your paintbrush to create an abstract landscape painting you’ll be proud of.


• If you are unable to attend the live session or would like a second look at the session, the replay will be available later that evening.


I’d love for you to join the live sessions so I can demonstrate for you personally and address any of your specific questions.

By the end of the three-day encounter, you will “fall” in love with what you have created and you’ll have a piece of art you’ll be proud to call your own!




Supply list:


  • Color scheme tips

  • Tips on creating an eye-appealing horizon line and focal point

  • Instruction on making preliminary studies on paper before painting on canvas

  • Daily positive affirmation

  • Daily live sessions via Zoom with easy-to-follow guidance and the ability to ask questions

  • A private Facebook group where you’ll share your questions/comments as well as your artwork and find fellowship with other artistsJoin me for this powerful learning experience!

Kianga Jianki’s Visual Storytelling Brings Fabric Art To Life. Meet This Vibrant Artist At The Broward Quilt Expo October 23- 24

Kianga Jinaki is a visual storyteller. Her multi-dimensional work reflects her life and African cultural traditions learned through travel and personal study. She creates her own textiles using African cloth by painting, stamping, dying, or sun printing. Over 50% of her work is done by hand.  Kianga will be a vendor at the upcoming Broward Quilt Expo Marketplace on October  23 – 24.  The Rickie Report shares the details and some sneak peeks of Kianga’s creations! Kianga also offers classes and workshops in the area.







601 City Center Way   Pembroke Pines, FL 33025













Kianga Jinaki’s multi-dimensional fabric art reflects her life and African cultural traditions she learned through travel and personal study. She tells The Rickie Report, “Textiles come with their own stories. I am adding my own voice. I speak with cloth”.






Kianga shares, “I enjoy creating my own textiles by painting, stamping, dying or sun printing fabric. More than 50% of  the sewing, embellishing, and appliqué seen in my work is done by hand”.





“Because so much of my process is self-taught my work has a ‘folk art’ feel to it. I love adding texture and embellishments to create more dimension. Writing prayers and affirmations on cloth or paper, then binding them with thread or wire to a piece adds an element of spirit. My work draws on the folklore, music, poetry, history, spirituality and essence of African people”.





“A Moment in Jazz” by Kianga Jinaki




“Born and raised in Baltimore, MD,  I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s immersed in the cultural and civil rights movement of the time. My  years of  reading the works of Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and other cultural icons, gave me an appreciation for my culture and desire to express it through my art”.




Mini Textile portrait by Kianga Jinaki



“Quilting is a medium with which I continue to grow and explore as I incorporate new methods of storytelling techniques.  I create art quilts, dolls, and mixed media works that tell the story of my heritage as an African-American. My work includes historic and cultural traditions from both America and Africa. Traditional and contemporary African textiles are used in my work. I see my work as contemporary folk art.




Kianga offers a wide variety of quilts, wearable art, and embellishments



My quilts can address many issues, from violence against Black people in this country, to reminiscing about the 70’s, or represent  Mami Wata an African Goddess, that appears in Dogon cosmology as the mother of creation”.



“Adowa Returns” by Kianga Jinaki



“As a child I created collages and my greatest influence was Romare Bearden. When I began to create dolls in the early 90’s I saw them as another form of collage/assemblage. A few years after I began to create dolls I was exposed to the work of quilter Faith Ringgold.  It was her work that enabled me to see quilting as a viable medium to tell the stories of my heart”. 



Cowry Shells for embellishment 



“I chose this medium because of my love for African textiles. Years prior to my art career I made my own clothing using Africa textiles. I love the versatility of these textiles, most of them made from cotton, which is easily manipulated, dyed, embellished, sewn, and painted upon. I’m very comfortable telling my stories through cloth”.




Recently, Kianga received The Curators Award for my work in the Exhibition Contemporary Fiber of Florida 2019 at FloridaCraft Art Gallery; Honorable Mention for her art quilt category Juried exhibition at the Broward Quilt Expo 2019 in Ft Lauderdale; An six month exhibition of her work in “Soul Utterings: Creative Works by Kianga Jinaki and John Mascoll”, at Hannibal Square Heritage Center in Winter Park.
