Oil Paint Along with Nancy

Water & Oil DO Mix! 
Try Water Mixable Oil Paints!! If you ever wanted to try oil painting but were afraid of the chemicals, these new oil paints are very environmentally friendly!!  

“Paint and Take” art workshops are all the rage and can be enjoyed by anyone…even if you can’t draw a stick figure! You can bring your favorite non-alcoholic beverage and a light snack, if you wish, and settle in for a couple of hours of color and wonder as you create a unique work of art. The instructor-led session is easy to follow and all supplies are provided which includes canvas, paint, easel and brushes. You’ll leave with a finished painting and an experience you won’t soon forget!
