Art Classes

I teach art classes that are loads of fun! If you are interested in a private lesson please contact me.

Next Class March 26th! Tickets available HERE

This will be a fun day of painting and chat and good music and food! NO experience necessary but if you have some and want to participate and enjoy a day of painting, you are absolutely welcome. We will be painting this great image using acrylic paint on an 10 x 10 cradled birch support. OF course artistic license is welcomed and you can make it your own:) This painting might take a wee bit longer to complete but most painters can get it done in time. If you take longer, no problem, we will allow you to finish.

ALL Supplies included AND a yummy vegetarian lunch. Soup AND either a wrap, quiche or sandwich will be served. It is a dairy free zone, so almond milk and soy milk are used for coffee and tea.

Wear something comfortable that an errant drop of paint won’t hurt. If you have a craft apron or old t-shirt, might be a good idea to wear it:)
