FAQ's about Abstract Painting Class
What if I'm going to miss a class?
No problem, we've got you covered. Your membership includes FREE access to all our Open Studio times and we record each lesson so you can watch it later.
What will the classes be like?
We always start in the comfy couch area and say "hello" to each other.
Then Shannon will demo the lesson for the night. Then students start working on their assignment and have individual help when needed.
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 fit 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!
