Come loosen up and have fun with Carrie Clayden in this one day workshop. Carrie has been to Monet’s house and gardens and will bring inspiration pictures for us to paint. She has students of all levels, even beginners, so if you are wanting to give painting a try, she is your teacher. We will use multiple canvases, lots of fun warm ups, and dance to Carrie’s amazing play list. We can enjoy a potluck lunch in the Art League Gallery, while chatting about our art. This one day workshop is a rare gem, so mark your calendars. You will leave with many finished paintings to keep or give to family and friends.


“I’m so grateful for Carrie’s class, and I can’t wait to take it again. Her class was not only fun but it helped me connect to my soul. She reignited my love affair with paint by encouraging me and pushing me to get past my creative block and doubts. Her class is personally rewarding, Carrie fosters a community of supportive artists that cheer each other on.” -Illana Ingber


“I learned how to splash, drip, push and pull paint, we had so much fun! I mostly learned that there is zero pressure in class! In fact, “Mistakes” turned out to be happy accidents! I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn, have fun and let go in Carrie’s classes! My paintings are so much better and most of all I am having fun!” -Kari Schratz
