Workshops

Fun and inspiring workshops designed for all kinds of people at ALL skill levels. I teach a technique, rather than how to copy my example. We work together on pieces you will enjoy making and taking home with you to display in your home! Bring your curiosity -- and maybe a friend -- to my home studio in New Hope, PA for one of my adult art workshops.

 

My ONLINE CLASSES with Carla Sonheim Productions can be found HERE.

Put a bird on it! Do you love the layered look of waxed encaustic art? Did you know you can achieve a similar look with acrylic paints and mediums? In this fun workshop we will make sweet, little birds on 6x6" smooth, claybord panels that mimic the look of encaustics but are made with quick-drying acrylics. $60 includes instruction, all materials and a fun afternoon with colors, shapes and friends.

My workshops are designed for all skill levels! No art experience necessary, just curiosity!

Classes are held at my home in New Hope, PA. I am about 2 miles from town. If you have not been to New Hope it is a lovely town and it would be great to take a workshop with a friend and then catch a dinner here—or the other side of the river, Lambertville— afterwards.
