FAQs


Can my kids attend this class with me?

Yes, as long as they are at least 12 years old.


I’ve never done anything like this before, is this class for me?

Absolutely. You don’t need any prior experience to create beautiful paintings. I will teach you everything you need to know.


Can I take my paintings home with me?

Yes of course. I provide paint trays with covers so you can safely transport your paintings home. Be sure to take off the covers once you’re home so the paintings can dry.


Will I be able to create paintings at home after this class?

Yes. My goal is to teach you everything you need to know to continue creating paintings at home if you wish. You will have handouts walking you through the steps and all my paint mixing formulas and measuring tools.


Is this class really messy?

I like to keep things tidy but paint pouring can be messy so I provide gloves and a disposable apron for you. I recommend wearing clothes you wouldn’t mind getting paint on because you never know when accidents might happen.
