Join me in the Waterfront Studio!

Join me in the waterfront studio and discover the adventure of acrylic painting.

Learn how to have fun with paint by learning different applications like layering, lifting, rolling, glazing, flicking and of course experimenting with this versatile medium. Sometimes we even have fun with collage. 

I teach a let loose be free approach.

This Acrylic painting class is fun, easy, and packed full of information.

We start with abstract art which will give you a good understanding of many techniques.

From tips to tricks it's all covered here at Studio Girdwood.

Come and learn an array of techniques to later use in your own style of painting.  

There are no limits!

Don't worry!

This is for beginners and I am here to guide you through the different steps. The longer you attend the more comfortable you will become with acrylic paint.
