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 introduce a new technique, demonstrate it for everyone and answer questions. After that, students begin their own practice assignment using the technique and Shannon is available for 1 on 1 questions and help. The student art-making time tends to be about 2 hours per class.
Are all materials included in the price?
Yes, the fee you've paid covers ALL materials for each assignment. We also offer complimentary snacks and tea to make your time with us more enjoyable. If you ever want to buy an additional canvas or watercolor paper, those are available as well.
What if I'm going to miss a class?
Totally normal, everyone misses class from time to time. We make it super easy! Each class subscription includes FREE access to all our Open Studio times (2-3/week) so you can catch up in the studio with a step by step handout of the lesson. AND we post videos of all our lessons in the online community so you can literally watch the class you missed!
Who will be in my class?
Your class will be adults who are looking to relax, be creative and express themselves. On 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 or drawing in about 6-8 weeks. Our curriculum offers absolute beginner assignments through challenge assignments so that you can actually choose what feels like the just-right challenge for you. PLUS we have videos on the basics of painting with acrylics, watercolors and drawing so you can come in knowing some stuff already! Click here if you'd like to watch those basics videos now!

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!
How do I decide which kind of art I want to try?
We have a fun quiz that helps you figure out which art medium matches YOU! Different mediums actually have their own personality traits and that's why people are drawn to different ones! Click the link below to find out your medium of choice!
