Join me as I introduce you to my art obsessions in small group settings. Perfect for beginners or artists wanting a fresh perspective.  Half-day workshops, Wine & Paint sessions, and ongoing acrylic painting classes are conveniently offered in St. Augustine, Florida.  
Come explore your creative side in a safe, supportive environment.

Beginner's Acrylic Art Class

Anyone can paint!! I will show you different techniques and how to find joy in the act of painting.  Depending upon the needs of each class, I will teach about color, composition, and light and shadow, as well as exploring lots of cool painting techniques.  Each student will start working on the same projects and then we will branch out so that each student works on their own individual project, with my guidance.

Tuesday Evening Session:
Starts March 12, 2019, 6:30-8:30

Thursday Afternoon Session:
Starts March 14, 2019, 2PM - 4PM

Each session lasts six weeks and costs $150 ($25 per class). 

Location:  My studio is located over my garage in Palencia, a neighborhood off Hwy 1, in north St. Augustine (St. Johns county). 

Continuing classes will be offered once the first six weeks ends.  I'm limiting each class to 4 students to begin, due to space constraints and so that everyone gets the individual attention they need.  I may expand the class size in the future. 

A supply list is provided below (scroll past the other offerings), or I can purchase all necessary supplies for a one time fee of $50.
Sign Me Up!
I'm currently searching for studio space outside of the home.  Until I find space big enough, feel free to contact me if you are interested in hosting an event for your next girls' night, birthday party (teen and above) or neighbors.  Here are some of the workshops I can teach.  I will be setting up times for these workshops in 2019 when I find my new space.

Paint Your Pet
During this 3-hour workshop, I will guide you through the process of sketching (or tracing) your pet on a 16”x20” canvas.  Then I will guide you through the process of applying a background, underpainting, color mixing, creating fur strokes, and final details.  Please bring a high-quality photo of your pet (doesn’t have to be large).  All supplies included. Perfect for a “wine and paint” or "apps and paint" event 
$40 per person

Intro to Doodle Mania
During this 3 -hour workshop, I will introduce you to the doodling craze.  Learn to quiet your mind while you explore different techniques, patterns, shapes, mandalas and games.  Plenty of examples will be provided and each student will receive a sketchbook, instructional handouts, and a micron pen.  Warning: it’s addictive!!  $40 per person

Connect with Collage
Learn how to create your personal spirit deck with the art of collage. Tap into your creative spirit and explore different facets of your personality and soul's journey through intuitive art collaging.  Each student will be provided with a starter set of 5”x7” boards, a glue stick, scissors and guided support. 
2-hour workshop $35 per person (Continuing creative sessions available if interested.)
Intuitive Painting Workshop
This is a *4-hour introductory workshop to intuitive painting—also called process painting.  It’s recommended that you have some knowledge of color theory and basics, but it’s a great way to experiment and learn to let go and let the paint flow!  Don’t expect to come away with a fantastic creation—it’s more about the joy of painting as a process. It’s very freeing to learn to let go of expectations. In the end you will discover new things about yourself as well as new art techniques. 
All supplies are included to create one 18” x 24” painting.  $60 per person (*option to break into two 2-hour sessions)

Intro to Pastel Drawing / Illustration
Come learn the basics of pastel painting/drawing!  Intro class includes the use of supplies to create one piece of art.  Continuing classes available if there's interest.  2-hour class $35/person.

For the beginner's art class, I recommend these three products from Amazon.  You can get a nice set of brushes, paints and canvases to start for just under $50 if you have Amazon Prime.  If not, let me know and I can order for you.

I will have aprons, water cups, palettes and easels for your use in class. 
Here are some of my favorite art products.  The Golden paints are more pigmented and have a glossy finish.  The wood panels are great for all kinds of mediums.  And the detail brushes and acrylic pens are also highly recommended.
If you like pastels, these are the best soft pastels and paper I could find.
Here are some art books that I recommend if you are interested in these particular types of art.
I'm located in Saint Augustine, FL
