Class Schedule and Registration

Gini Deaton teaches oil painting in the wet-on-wet style made famous by PBS TV artists. This method of wet into wet, or alla prima painting has been around for centuries and is used by artists worldwide. As a certified instructor, she says, “Anyone can learn to paint with this method of step by step demonstration and one on one instruction”. Take home a finished painting at the end of the class! Even first time painters are surprised at how well they do.

Cancellation policy: Stuff happens. So, if you register for a class and can’t attend please try to give me at least a days notice so I don’t prepare your space in the class and can offer the class to someone on my waiting list. You can transfer your payment to another class at your convenience. If you give me at least 3 hours notice you will be credited for a future class at your convenience. Sorry, no refund for classes unattended or canceled without notice.
