Set in a rural setting in Ottawa.



Acrylic Painting Classes - A wildly popular all-inclusive experience!

No Art Experience Needed

If you think you have no art abilities, let me show you otherwise while having the time of your life!

In this workshop you'll experiment with intuitive made from your imagination! You'll use mixed media which means you'll combine paints with papers, fibers, found objects, and so on.

I will guide you through various techniques while allowing you complete freedom of expression.

What you will NOT be doing is painting from a still life or from photos. This is not a formal drawing or painting class. You will learn to trust your choice of colours and your natural sense of balance and composition.

Of course I'll be right there beside you along the way for support and problem solving.

See what participants have had to say!!!

What an awesome excuse for some grown-up play time!

Includes morning coffee / tea.

Includes delicious lunches and beverages.


You go home with the finished canvases!

Get the girls (or guys) or family members together and bring some wine if you want.  How about some Mother / Daughter time?

Need an idea for the coolest birthday gift?  ...this is it!

Need a really cool team building experience, then let me be your creativity coach for the day!!!

Call me to book your retreat!  Weekdays or weekends!
