Frequently Asked Questions

There are lots of mediums to paint with. The three most popular mediums are oil, watercolor and acrylics. But there are SO many reason to paint with acrylics!

  1. Water Cleanup: Acrylic paints clean up easily with water. You will never need to expose yourself or others to special solvents or thinners when you are using acrylic paints.
  2. Fast Drying:I love the fact that I can touch my paintings after a short time and not worry about getting wet paint on myself or what's around me. This makes it much easier to store and transport paintings without all the headache you'd have if they were still wet. Also, when I want to make a change to a painting I can do it quickly.
  3. Super Versatile:Acrylic paints can be applied to almost any surface because they adhere so well. They can also be applied very thin and transparent or very thick and impasto-like without having to worry about rules like "thick over thin" because of their quick drying properties. Acrylic paintings are easy to frame because they don't need to be protected with glass.
  4. Cost Effective:Acrylic paints are fairly inexpensive when compared to other mediums. This means that you can paint and practice with freedom without being too concerned about cost.
  5. Travel Easily:Because they are non-toxic and don't require fancy thinners, you can travel the world with your acrylic paints and never worry about boarding a plane with hazardous materials.


We are happy to say we've had many people with little to no experience come through our instruction!

You will be able to see paintings come together from start to finish and never miss anything because you can pause, stop & rewind as much as you need!

Absolutely, yes!
