I would love to teach a workshop for you and share my joy in painting. I will usually travel to teach with in a 5 hr drive from Raleigh NC.

Below you will find samples of projects that I offer for seminars.  All paintings are in acrylics, or mixed media, and in my own style of painting.   I teach the theory and techniques for each project.

I have been a DecoArt helping artist for many years and appreciate the excellent quality of their products.  I create with mostly DecoArt products and paints, both Americana and Traditions.

You are responsible for your own surface in the appropriate dimensions and prep paints.

You are welcome to schedule a special seminar for your group of 4 or more painters at Artful Endeavors.

Please contact Liz at artfulendeavors@raleigh.twcbc.com for details.
