Private Painting Parties

Exciting projects to choose from. Use a variety of materials, such as acrylic on canvas and select a theme. Your group can choose to draw, paint in watercolour, or do mixed media or try printmaking. Supplies are included in the Private Painting Parties. You will use a 16 x 20 inch Canvas with acrylic paint. You will get step by step instructions and take home a finished painting. 

By Valerie Kent

Sometimes there is a mystery to be solved and you are the very person to solve it.

Yes, you are that person who can discover this paradise which is unknown to most North Americans, but is a very perfect place to have an art holiday.  The answer is the stunning region of the Dordogne in France.

Valerie Kent is going to take a small group of art lovers to paint in the Village of

Lavilledieu, France in May and the first week of June.  There will be a number of

levels of expertise, including beginners, and that is just okay.
