Three New Students at my West Springfield Michaels Acrylic Workshop!

Sunday, I had three brand new students at my West Springfield Michaels Painting Workshop!

One was a twelve year girl Arilese who came with her mother and is determined to be an artist when she grows up and have an art gallery!

Her parents want to help her as much as possible now to develop her talent.
She is not afraid of painting and I can already see her talent!
That young age is the perfect time to start developing her artistic energies.

The other two older ones did great as well!

Sign Up to Learn to Paint at Michaels!


I teach four genres of subjects at three Michaels stores.
Landscape, seascape, floral and still life, which I alternate each week.
Workshops are two hours long and I instruct step by step as I paint alongside the students giving suggestions to improve their paintings during the class.

At the Hadley Michaels I teach starting at 6:30 pm on Fridays, at the Enfield Michaels the class starts at 3 pm on Saturdays and at the West Springfield Michaels we start at 4:45 pm Sundays.

You can register ahead of time at the store with at the cash register or online at www.michaels.com and follow the links to classes and painting and the specific store that you want. 
Each workshop is $25 plus supplies (which last a long time).

Painting in acrylic is the easiest medium, cleans up with water and drys to a hard finish before you leave.
Its great fun and lets out your creativity!
For beginners and all levels! Adults and children!
