Paint Parties with Linda Finstad
Paint Party Options
* Suitable for Absolute beginners - We have a selection of super easy projects to choose from that will guarantee success for even those who claim they can't draw stick men.
* Q-tip Art
This is a surprisingly easy form of painting as we use a q-tip instead of a paint brush and build the image using a series of dots. We create these stunning abstract images on a black canvass which we prepare in class. You also learn how to use the colour wheel and blend paint to open up a while world of possibilities from just a few tubes of paint.
Hen Party Paint night
This is a fun evening where you will paint not one but two crazy chickens. Linda will show you how to prepare a mottled background, draw chickens that are full of character and bring them to life in acrylic paints. The second painting will be on a black canvass - you will learn how to do the under-painintg so the colours pop of the page. Suitable for anyone over 12yrs.
Learn to draw horses and paint in a style called "Prism-Equus" that was developed by artist Linda Finstad. this class is more suited to intermediate students.
Perhaps your group is interested in nature and would like landscape projects, or perhaps a special holiday theme - for Valentines day or Christmas - just drop Linda little note and she will prepare a very special art project just for you.
New for 2020
An advanced class that takes place over 3 seprate days
(due to the drying time required for each step) You will learn how to prepare your wooden plaque - the easy way to draw flowers - create a contemporary background using palette knives - Sculpt flowers using modelling paste - bring the flowers to life by understanding shadows and highlights - finishing off with instruction on how to seal and varnish your work
Price for all 3 session - including materials $125
All paints, brushes, specialty pencils and materials are included.
We will even loan you an apron to keep your clothes clean.
If you enjoy the process you are welcome to come back and create more paintings in the company of friends and with personal help from Linda Finstad in which ever style you prefer.
Each class is approx. 3 hours in duration, which means not everyone in the class will finish their painting. Which is OK because by the end of the class you will have the necessary skills to finish your painting on your own at home. However you are welcome to register for another class and bring your painting with you to finish off in class (then start another one).

New Art projects
Linda is continually adding new art projects to the line up of
possible paintings participants at a paint class can create.
As you can see this style of painting lends itself to many subjects - not just horses.
If you are intimidated by applying paint to a canvass using brush strokes - then you will love the control and ease of blending this method of creating art provides.
Class projects range from sweet and simple to advanced works of art. Once you have the theses techniques at your finger tips or should I say
Q-tips the sky is the limit.
Sweet and Simple
These are super easy and painted on an 11x14 canvass
you will complete two paintings at a paint class.
