How do the classes work?
Who can take the classes: No experience needed.
You do not need any special talent or skills- just a desire to paint! (Adults age 13 & up.)
I do teach kids classes too. Ages 7-12.
Signing up: You must register at least 24 hours or more before the class. You can sign up at any register in the store OR online at Michaels .com. Find "classes".
You do need to pre-register at Michaels for the class project/date/time you wish.
What does it cost?
Class fees are now $25 per each session or $50 for a longer workshop. Supplies are extra.
Watch for special discounts on class tuitions during Open houses! Sometimes they are half price!!
Students also receive 10% off all class supplies by showing the supply list & class tuition receipt at time of purchase.
Grumbacher has assembled a basic starter "kit" (which is cheaper than purchasing the items individually) available at Michaels in the Fine Art Dept. The kit retails at $49.99 and you can use a coupon on it.
The kit contains: 2 brushes, 2 9"x12" canvas boards,
4 regular size tubes of paint (which are used in most or all projects), a palette knife. Aproximately $70-75 worth of items if bought individually.
You may need to purchase additional tube(s) of paint & brushes, depending on the projects. You will receive a supply list for each project when you sign up for the class at Michaels.
When registering online, the supply list might be incomplete so click on the photo of the project or email me if you need MY list of additional supplies that I suggest you bring.
What will we paint? We will begin with landscapes, seascapes, still lifes or floral projects. We plan to complete these in one class session. Classes usually run 2-3 hours. Workshops are usually 4-5 hours.
***If you are unable to come to a paid class, notify the store before class time!!
You can then get a refund or transfer your class to a future class that is the same length of time. I appreciate a text telling me you can't come but you must notify the store too. 309-253-1789
***Painting begins at the time specified so please come a few minutes early and set up.
