Private group painting parties and classes
I'm glad to host small gatherings (up to 6 people) at my home studio for adult classes or painting classes for children. If you want a class at your own home or venue - I may be able to make that happen too.
Choose a painting from my catalog
For many 5-10 year old children I recommend simpler paintings and 1 hour classes. Smaller children often get tired after about an hour and can't enjoy it so much afterwards.
Children over 10 and adults can normally handle longer classes and more complex paintings. My standard paintings take 2-3.5 hours.
Choose your own painting
Send me a few images showing what you want to paint. I'll work with you to pick one that can be done within your desired timeframe and look nice if simplified. I often simplify the images, and will create an initial draft of the painting we'd do in class.
If I see that the image you prefer is too complex to make a reproduction within class time - I'll let you know and we'll find another one.
My studio or your location
I can host in my home where I have all my scheduled classes and can accommodate up to 6 painters. For children's classes I ask that at least 2 adults also stay (they don't have to paint).
Or I can bring all the necessary things to your home or venue within a 15 mile radius from Mundelein, IL. That way I can teach up to 12 painters if your space can fit us all.
Prices for private painting parties
Pick a painting from my catalog, at my home studio:
Adults/Teens class (2 to 3.5 hours) - $85

Class at your location within 15 miles from Mundelein, IL
Choose your own painting (not from my catalog)
I will have brushes, paint, canvases and easels for the group.
I can also bring foldable tables, chairs and disposable tablecloths, but would need your help to bring them in and set up all that inside and then to put them back into my car.
