Workshops

SPRING CLASSES ARE HERE! Sign up for my mailing list to be notified of all my workshops.

This is where you will find my workshop schedule for my new studio in Yardley, PA. Can't make one of the dates? If you are a group of 8 or more, either bring them here or I'll come to you! Details in ART PARTIES.

These workshops are ABSOLUTELY NOT copy the teacher classes—quite the opposite. We will all begin with a clean board or canvas so that we are exploring together. I teach technique much like a recipe, telling you step by step what we are doing, answering questions and making recommendations along the way, if desired. Color and design choices are always up to the individuals. You will be surprised and amazed at how we all set out with the same tools and instructions and then end up with so many varied, unique, beautiful pieces.

All workshops feature professional grade GOLDEN Acrylic Paints and Mediums.

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

"Panoramic Stained Glass Trees" This is a “deluxe” variation of my previously offered workshop, Stained Glass Trees, that utilizes a unique, narrow gallery wrapped canvas and your choice of color palette. Your 8x24" panoramic style painting will be created on a pre-primed, stretched canvas with acrylic paints and inks. We will use finger-painting, "graffiti," High Flow acrylics in a "fineliner", positive and negative space, iridescent and interference acrylics. We will experiment with a variety of tools, mark-making, and we'll use nib pens with high viscosity acrylics for details that will light up your work. $125.00 includes instruction, all materials, morning coffee/tea, a delicious light lunch with a group of kindred spirits. 

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

Classes are held at my home studio in Yardley, PA. I am one mile from the historic borough and a half mile from the beautiful Delaware River canal path where you can walk, run or bike. For those coming from further away, I am just a ten-minute Uber or Lyft ride from the Septa station.
