Painting Party Workshops


Painting Party Workshops are a fun way for a group to enjoy painting together!  I can accommodate all levels of experience, from students who have never painted before to others who are more experienced.  We can paint all kinds of different subject matter.  At this painting party, we painted a vase of tulips.  Everyone did a great job, and we had a wonderful time!



Here’s how it works: You find the location.  It could be your house, church, or community center.  You bring the food and drinks.  I’ll bring the art supplies, and we’ll each paint a painting together step by step!
