SPRING CLASSES WILL BE POSTED SOOOOOOOON! Sign up for my mailing list to be notified when registration is open!

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 GOLDEN Acrylic Paints and Mediums.

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

ON LOCATION! At the lovely Red Fox Art Gallery - 612 Old Post Road, Bedford, NY

Circles and Lines. How would you like to give yourself a meditative creative experience? Join me for a special workshop at the Red Fox Gallery in Bedford, NY for this fun and intuitive afternoon and leave with a lovely piece of personal art. This workshop is a crowd favorite...a fun and meditative doodle-based painting class dedicated to my favorite shape... THE CIRCLE. We will create a colorful, painted doodle full of circles and lines, in your favorite color palette, on a gorgeous 6x6" piece of smooth, cradled birch. Details will be added with High Flow paints and acrylic inks and then we'll finish by "writing" our very own inspiring piece of "found poetry" that will be collaged on top of our painting. A final coat of gloss finishes off this lovely and personal piece of art. You are a poet and you don't even know it... your poem will amaze you. 

$60 EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION THROUGH MARCH 20…$65 after. This price includes instruction, all materials and an afternoon full of relaxing creativity. 

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