Painting Workshops 

Workshops are the perfect way to immerse yourself in a painting, learning the specific skills of the painting topic, and finishing the session with a completed painting ready to take home.

 

It's the ideal gift and makes a great way to spend a day with friends or family.

These workshops are open to all levels of painters.
