An Introduction to Tole & Decorative Painting

Red Poppies on Canvas

Beginner decorative painting lessons...there's nothing like learning to paint for the very first time! I remember my very first lesson and I've been hooked ever since!

Hundreds of my beginner students who swore they didn't have a creative bone in their bodies have gone on to become wonderful tole painters. And they are passionate about their art! OK, maybe even a little obsessed.

Here's where you can learn more about the schedule and fee for beginner decorative painting.

Believe me when I say that you can learn to paint by taking these easy to follow painting lessons. Yet I can hear you saying, "But I can’t even draw a straight line." Well, that’s great!!! We seldom draw straight lines anyway!

As a beginner you’ll learn something new with every step along the way. You cannot fail! There is no guesswork for you… no creative blocks… It’s just pure fun and relaxation. And you’re not going to be alone. There’s room for up to 10 students in the class, and not one of them will know more than you know.

Decorative painting is taught in a “you-can't-fail” way. Repetition and practice ensure you have a full understanding of everything you learn. During your classes you build your skills based on the previous step.

You'll practice all you learn in a special art journal. This will be a journal that you will treasure for a lifetime! And you'll learn to paint on an interesting wood surface.

At the end of the weekend, you will receive an official Certificate of Completion, dated and signed by me.

Here are the beginner decorative painting details for the schedule and fees.
