Live Well Paint Often hosts both group classes open to the public and private classes for birthday celebrations, bridal showers, and corporate events.
Classes are designed for people of any age and skill set; from teens to seniors, art school grads to people who’ve never held a paintbrush. Public classes are usually held at our studio or one of our favorite local restaurants (we love supporting other small businesses), and private classes can be held either at our studio or your home.
To book a private class, get in touch here. to find out when our 2019/2020 class schedule is posted, please get on our mailing list below.
What should I expect? . . .
Once everyone arrives and gets settled, we begin the painting class. Amanda breaks each painting down into a series of simple, easy-to-follow steps. Need help? She or her class assistant will get you more paint, or help guide your painting if you're creatively stuck.
What if I'm a terrible artist? . . .
Amanda has taught hundreds of people how to paint - each and every one of them has innate artistic talent, they just need to unearth it. Our classes are supportive, friendly, and non-judgmental. As our favorite painting teacher Bob Ross says, "There are no mistakes, just happy accidents."
What do I need to bring? . . .
We provide all the supplies - all you need to bring is a sense of fun and a positive attitude. We'll have easels, canvases, brushes, and acrylic paint for you. If we're hosting at one of our favorite local restaurants, there'll be tasty drinks and food for you to snack on.
What should I wear? . . .
We suggest wearing clothes you wouldn't mind getting a little paint on. If you splatter a little on your clothes by accident, you can usually rinse it off right off if it hasn't dried! If it's dried, we've found that acetone can remove acrylic paint pretty well on most fabrics.
Is my painting going to be wet on the way home? . . .
Acrylic paint is pretty fast-drying - it should be dry by the time you're ready to leave!
