Acrylics are fun and easy to learn with. Abstract offers the most creative freedom around what you paint.
This class will teach you to paint beautiful paintings, GUARANTEED with a focus on fun, abstract techniques, composition and color.
This class is also our strongest community! We became a membership-based studio because our Abstract students wanted to keep coming and learning new things together.
The hardest part around taking a class is saying "yes" to yourself. Believing you deserve this creative me time. The easiest part is clearing your mind, leaving the day behind and getting into the creative flow!

FAQ's about Abstract Painting
What if I'm going to miss a class?
No problem! Every misses class once in a while :) With your membership, you have access to ALL our Open Studios each month to come in and paint. We have handouts with the step-by-step lesson you missed AND we video our lessons and post them in the online community! So many ways to stay in the loop!
What will the classes be like?
For each class we begin together in our comfy couch area where we take time to get to know each other a little more each week. Then Shannon will explain a painting concept and demonstrate the lesson on a canvas. After that students paint their own canvas to practice the lesson while Shannon walks around for questions and help.
Why do you practice on canvas?
Painting a canvas can feel intimidating...we want it to turn out a certain way. We paint on canvas every night so that you can enjoy the benefits of canvas while overcoming the expectations of what it "should be."
Who will be in my class?
Your class will be adults who are looking to relax, be creative and express themselves. In special occasions, we let mature teens into our classes as well. There will be no more than 15 students total and everyone is nice and supportive.
What if I have absolutely no experience?
No experience is great! We can teach you all the fundamentals of painting in about 6-8 weeks. Our curriculum offers absolute beginner assignments through challenge assignments so that you can actually choose what you want to paint and what feels like the just-right challenge for you.
How do I prepare for my first night?
For your first night, make sure you know our address and leave early so that you can get settled in with a cup of tea and not feel rushed. You do not need to bring any supplies. You may want to think about how you are dressed for making art.
How much individual instruction will I get?
After teaching the painting lesson, Shannon will walk around the room so that you can get individual instruction whenever you need it. This allows for you to get into the flow and not be bothered OR get any help you need just depending on your mood for the evening!
