General Classes

These classes are designed to teach the various concepts of the technique for painting that I use in my artwork, with levels from beginner to advanced. Scroll down to learn more about the tools and techniques.

Classes are held Thursday Evenings and Saturday Mornings in my home studio. We’ll be having fun with PenDeZign by Donna using Plaid’s Fabric Inks & Stamps; and dare I say, a RIOT, doing a BeautiFunktional ReDew with Plaid’s Home Décor Chalk Paints, as well as incorporating their Multi-Surface Paints. Explore your inner fine artist using Martin/F. Weber's wOil paints the One Stroke way. We’ll be working with many surfaces, including canvas, wood, glass, and metal. Everything is provided unless otherwise specified. I carry and highly recommended purchasing a One Stroke beginner paint kit ($25) for practice at home!
