Painting With Acrylics

Workshops And Classes

Winter / Spring 2018
Coming soon...

Painting with acrylics is a wonderful hobby. There are no fumes, the paints dry quickly, you can add a variety of mediums to them so they take on properties similar to oils or watercolours.

I love acrylics and I use them in my decorative painting, like the projects featured below as well as in my mixed media art.

Please check back again as I continue to develop classes for the 2018 Winter/ Summer and Fall schedule.

I'll be adding more events not related to painting that I think will stimulate your creativity in new ways as well!
