how to find a good teacher to teach painting for kids

My 10 yr old daughter loves arts. She likes to do all kinds of crafts. She also like to draw and paint. She has been taking drawing lessons. But the problem is that she doesn't like her drawing teacher. She told me that she does not want to spend time learning sketching, drawing still life. She found trying to draw people very frustrating. She said that she wants to just learn painting. She enjoys playing with colors and patterns. So I decide to look around for more suitable teachers. But without much knowledge of on this subject myself, I want to know if there are teachers who would teach kids painting without trying to build basic drawing skills. How to talk to art teachers to see if they can work well with my daughter. Will a better teach be able to motivate her into practicing drawing with less frustration? Thanks

NOT just running this up the flagpole to see if anyone salutes it...

Leave it to us to cause a kerfuffle just before the elementary school spring concert this Friday! My daughter, who's seven and in first grade, is in tears because we, her parents, asked her to modify a movement in her performance and the teacher's response was for her to just do as she's instructed (as reported by our daughter and taken with a grain of salt) because "I'm the one that's teaching here."
