Dear Friends,
This is an exciting event taking place at my new non-profit fine art fabrication center in Lake Worth.  My team has worked tirelessly to make this opening a reality and we would all love you to be a part of the festivities.  There are two openings going on:  This one which takes place on Friday, January 23rd from 7PM to 10PM and one the next day from 2PM to 5PM.  If you can't make one, we hope you will be able to make the other!

As a professional artist, I have been showing, selling and teaching painting to adults in my studio for the past 11 years.  For the last two years I have been offering classes through Palm Beach Gardens Recreation Center on Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays from 9:30-12:30 am. Due to the popularity of the classes, I am adding a Tuesday afternoon painting class from 1 to 4 pm.

I have met wonderful artists, from all over the world. Many have become my good friends. Some of the artists that I have taught were quite accomplished and others were beginners. Now quite a few have blossomed to become serious professional artists, showing and selling their paintings, winning awards and publishing their work. 

If you have never taken an art class and would like to how to paint, why don't you give it a try!  You will be pleasantly surprised at what you can accomplish. If you are already a practicing artist you will have the chance to make your drawings and paintings more accurate and more exciting.

Classes are limited in size and you will receive plenty of individualized instruction.  Thrive on the company of other artists and enjoy exchanging creative thoughts and ideas.
