You can Create! Art Classes - Art Workshops - Wine & Paint

There is something so satisfying when a student’s eyes lighten up as they see their work turn into art. I don't think I will ever get tired of guiding people towards finding their creative spark. Anyone can learn to draw and paint. And everyone loves to be creative. I offer gentle guidance and sequential lessons that will help you build the skills needed to draw and paint successfully.

Sitting and creating is a meditative process. Troubles drift and as your paint brush flows, time passes, and your heart lightens. I want every one who would like to experience the joy of creating to have a safe place in which to do so. Come join me in tapping into your creativity.
