What if I have never painted before, I can't even draw a stick person?
These classes are geared toward the person who has never drawn or painted before. You are guided through the entire painting. SOME of the paintings will be pre-sketched and posted on the calendar. STRESS FREE!! It's laid back, fun and you will be surprised at your own artistic ability. Painting to me is a feeling and when that feeling creates something or even nothing, I’ve still created something and that something is good enough for me and I would love for you to experience the same!!
