* Classes are for all skill levels - for complete beginners to experienced painters.

* Small classes - maximum of 8 people.

* Each student receives individualized attention to select projects that interest them and that are suited to their level.
(You'll never be forced to paint a bowl of fruit - unless you want to!)

* The class fee is $60 per class ($360 for a block of 6 lessons and a 10% discount is offered if you pay for all 6 up front). All of your materials (canvas, paint, brushes, etc.) are included in that price.

* * A six week commitment is requested but....
You do not have to attend your classes in consecutive weeks!
Simply keep me posted from week to week whether or not you'll be attending class.
(Because, seriously, who has the same day and time available for 6 weeks in a row!?)

* There are 5 sessions to choose from:
Sundays 12pm-2pm
Sundays 3:30pm-5:30pm
Sundays 6-8pm
Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm    
Wednesdays 6:30-8:30pm    
(You can switch between sessions to suit you schedule)

There is no right or wrong - just pure relaxation and fun. Painting is also a great stress reliever, so please enter the studio and enjoy.
