Just the other day, I was kidding around with a customer in my studio about how we paint on anything. I told her that we paint on anything that doesn’t move! Sad but true. I have tried painting on many items such as how to paint on ceramics, shoes, glass, etc…–sometimes it doesn’t turn out well and sometimes it turns out awesome! One of my painting classes this week was of some funky summer cactus. Wait, what’s the correct plural of cactus? Oh yeah, cactuses–just kidding..cacti. Well, here’s the painting for your viewing: Continue Reading
I’m at it again! Recycling any surface to paint on! We took down an old ceiling fan that not only wasn’t working any longer but also something that needed to be repurposed.

Houston, we heard your request loud and clear! Now come paint a one-hour project and save some time and money! For only $14.50, kids can paint one of several pictures and these are easy self-guided projects. Adults can paint a mini canvas as well for $17.50 each (self-guided with printed instructions). So come get your PAINT ON at Art Class and Wine Glass!
You can walk in and request either a Kid’s or Adult canvas. Canvases are 10×10 inches and are self-guided. Although there is an assistant nearby, they will direct you to the instruction sheet for your particular painting. Quick, easy and economical for those groups that want just a quick project on a weekend or before a movie or dinner!

This particular senior home caters to residents with memory problems, dementia and Alzheimers disease. I get so wrapped up in planning the class, prepping for everything and implementing the curriculum that sometimes we lose sight of the people. Oh, the residents are so receptive and ready to begin. Our last session caught us off-guard Continue Reading
A neighbor of mine just had a baby and I felt maybe another baby blanket or onesie was too impersonal. So being in the crafty mood (that I’m always in), I decided to make a personalized gift! Just a few notes: This is the first time for this type of a watercolor painting project and I did come across a few bumps along the way but hopefully my mistakes and boo-boos help you guys on your project. By the way, if there were too many exclamation points in this watercolor painting entry, it’s because I was really excited on how well this project turned out! Continue Reading
