Upcoming Workshops

I offer a variety of fun and relaxing painting, crafting and creativity workshops throughout the year as well as special online events and e-courses. For in-person workshops, class sizes are small with typically only 4-6 participants and are held in the beautiful tranquil environment of my studio at the Alton Mill Arts Centre. Check out what I have coming up below!

Ongoing Classes & Private Groups

Drawing is a foundational skill that all artists need to keep honed and if you are a beginner, learning the fundamentals will get you started on your creative journey in the best way possible. And when you draw well, you paint well, whether its with watercolour, acrylic or oils.

If you are looking for more regular instruction or practice, I also offer ongoing lessons in drawing and acrylic painting. These weekly classes are pay-as-you-go and can be started anytime. Click on the links below to learn more.

Cancellation Policy

Last-minute cancellations other than for extenuating circumstances spoil the fun for all involved … it creates challenges for the facilitator and disappointment for other registrants if the class has to be cancelled as a result.

There is no refund for cancellations less than 72 hours before a class/workshop or for no-shows on the day, except in extenuating circumstances.

A raincheck may be offered in lieu of a refund, depending on the nature of the cancellation. If a workshop has to be cancelled due to inclement weather or other extenuating circumstances participants will either be notified of the re-scheduled day/time or a full refund will be provided.
