The path to creative painting starts with you. Workshops are geared to simplify the process of painting every day (or almost).  Learn how to loosen up, connect with your personal style and ways to stay motivated and inspired.

WORKSHOPS - All levels of painters are welcome.

The painting workshops embrace the painting process and the importance of a regular practice as a path to improving creativity and image making skills. Using acrylic or oil students will discover approaches to simplify the process of painting and ways to stay inspired and motivated.
