Workshops

This is where you will find my workshop schedule for New Hope. 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.

My workshops are ABSOLUTELY NOT like a "choose the #17 choice with the pine tree and the owl" and that’s what we are doing kind of class. I encourage my students to NOT copy my example—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. My students and I are always pleasantly 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.  

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.

Stained Glass Trees, Everyone's favorite class! Your 12x12" painting will be created on a pre-primed, stretched canvas with acrylic paints and inks. We will use finger-painting, "graffiti," positive and negative space.

We will experiment with a variety of tools, mark-making, and we'll use nib pens with ink for details that will light up your work. $95.00 includes instruction, all materials, morning coffee/tea, a delicious homemade, light lunch and a day full of creative, soul food. 

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.
