Come join me in painting classes again this year!  I have changed my class instruction back to Cochrane where it is more central for  most folks. Route 22 Gallery has opened their back studio for classes.  This is a large space with excellent lighting and all the amenities we need.  Not only is the space suitable for classes, you will be inspired by the beautiful art in this amazing Gallery.  Go check it out


The details for classes are as follows:


  • Painting classes in Oil, Acrylic or Watercolour

  • All levels from beginner to advanced

  • Everyone works on their own subject ... landscape, figures, abstract, etc.

  • Each class is 3 hours - 12:30 to 3:30 Wednesdays

  • Classes are sold by the month unless unable to commit to the 4 weeks, in
    which case an adjusted weekly charge is in effect. Contact Marla for details

  • ​​Payment can be made by e-transfer, cheque, cash, visa or mastercard



REFUND POLICY:  There are no refunds or carry overs into the next month unless Marla cancels the class.
