Privatelessons
Tailor made for each individual or group (group of friends and/or family members)
Price: Contact me directly to discuss lesson plans, dates, and prices.

ONLINE PAINT DAY (acrylics), $10 CAD per lesson!
Follow along a step-by-step painting lesson inspired by a famous artist from the comfort of your own home!
Supplies: Acrylic paint (Red, Yellow, Blue, White and Black), rectangle format canvas board, stretched canvas, watercolour paper, or mixed media paper (even some thick paper or recycled cardboard can work!)*, brushes, palette (can be a disposable plate or a piece of tin foil or wax paper), paper towels or rag, container of water for brush washing.
* If painting on paper or cardboard, I recommend having a roll of tape to tape down the edges. This helps keep the paper flat and also produces a pretty border afterwards.
