Painting With Acrylics

Workshops And Classes

Workshops for
Fall / Winter 2018 -2019

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!

Coming soon... PLUS much more!

Dreaming of a beach vacation but can't get away?  Let this challenging but fun project take you away to a southern destination on a bitterly cold January day!

Resplendent in purples, this lone Calla lily will challenge your blending and floating skills.  I love the drama here!

Design by Ginger Edwards

Painted on a tall and narrow wooden cradle board, this project is much more charming in person than photos can do it justice.  A stand out piece on a narrow wall for just a splash of liveliness in any room.
