What you'll learn in this painting class:

Creating art is in its very essence therapeutic and stimulating, the art of doing and creating something, feeds our soul and hearts. Art is the greatest teacher and a powerful form of self-expression and self-healing. In this relaxing class we welcome you to explore with us the healing powers of painting and color.

Learn how color plays a huge part in our lives and well being, investigate texture combinations & learn how to paint in a spontaneous way that will free you up and get you in touch with self again! From week to week, through both individual & group experience, students are encouraged to explore & develop their trust in the liberating creative potential of art within the therapeutic process & invention. It is a largely experiential class not about the finished product but more a lived experience that explores humanistic and integrative concepts to an understanding of the therapeutic potential of Art as Therapy. 

Even if you never picked up a paintbrush, this class will move you toward understanding, as you learn a new language, your confidence will grow. This is an awesome class to take with a partner, friend (group of friends) or colleague(s) for a cool bonding & fun experience!

Fees include all art supplies but NOT canvas. Canvas must be purchased prior to class. We recommend a mid size canvas to start.

  • SELECT size canvas are available for purchase in our studio ($ 35 & upward/ cash on delivery only) If you require a particularly large canvas, please bring it with you, as we might not have your preferred size available at the studio.

  • Specialty materials like glazes or mediums, are not supplied, and although might be introduced for minimal exploration, they are not available on a week to week basis. Please bring any specialty materials you require with you to class.
  • If you are signing up for only one drop in class, please understand the nature of painting or creating art cannot be determined ahead of time or guaranteed in one sitting. Please note you may require an additional class to finish your work or you are welcome to finish it at home.

Love my teacher- Chris! She's awesome! I was a total beginner to oil painting, she was very patient and knowledgeable to teach me how to mix and blend, and she stayed open-minded to help me experimenting with abstract forms and colors. I am very intrigued to oil paintings now and would love to do more. The only concern is the price of the class + canvas expense is slightly over my budget. A package deal for $50/per class would be ideal to me.
