2018 CLASS SCHEDULE

ARTFULLY TOLED STUDIO has a great supply of the necessary items for any class that is offered at the studio. Any special brushes or other supplies required for any given class can be purchased in advance or during class for the project you have signed up for.

 

As always, seating is limited to a maximum of 8 students (provided we aren’t painting on a large surface at which time classes will be limited to 4 or 6 students). Registrations can be made in person (see home page for studio hours) or by phone or email using Visa or Mastercard.


A reminder to all students the following is the registration and cancellation policy of the studio:

  • Entire registration fee is payable at time of registration. I accept Visa, Mastercard, Debit and cash. Classes missed will not be refunded or credited to another class and it is the responsibility of the student to catch up on missed classes prior to the following class. Brush Buddies on Tuesdays (at a cost of $9.00 per 3 hour session) are a great chance for students to get caught up when a class is missed.

  • Cancellations must occur at least 1 full week prior to the date the class starts and are subject to a $15.00 administration fee.

  • Any registrations cancelled less than one week’s advance notice prior to the class, the class fee is forfeited.

  • If there are insufficient paid registrations for a class and I have to cancel a class, you will be notified and your registration fee will be fully refunded or a studio credit issued.

Register early to avoid disappointment! Don't forget to waitlist yourself if a class is full. I will do my best to schedule another class.

 

STUDENT REQUESTS: Sometimes a class is offered in an evening session and a person would prefer daytime sessions. Please let me know if I have sufficient numbers of requests for daytime classes in a particular project, I will make every effort to fit it into the schedule. Keeping my students happy is important to me; however, in order to do that, I require your input in order to meet as many needs as possible.

NOTICE TO STUDENTS: I know many students prefer not to travel at night during the winter months; therefore, if there is a class on this class listing you are interested in and would prefer to have the class during a daytime offering, please let me know and if at all possible, I will try to accommodate those interests.  If there are sufficient numbers of students wishing a daytime class in a particular project, I will do my very best to offer the daytime class.  Where possible it will be offered from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on the same dates as the evening class.

UPCOMING PROJECTS

Working on new projects for the studio to offer as classes before we close for the summer season.  I have been playing with a few new ideas and techniques.  Let me know if any of these might interest you so I can bring you projects that are of interest to you.

     
Tuscan Tole Painting  

An interesting piece that involves some texturing and lots of basic tole painting and landscape painting techniques. This piece is done on a 16x20 canvas and includes all things Tuscan.

     
Acrylic Ink  

The last couple fabric painting classes have been quite popular and it has been some time since we did one at the studio.

Acrylic Ink and Pouring Mediums are used to create this amazing beach scene along with a few shells, real sand and other goodies.

Would you be interested in trying your hand at this style and technique of painting if everything was included.

     
Alcohol Inks and Dyes  

I have been playing with alcohol inks and tiles. This is a fun introductory project for alcohol inks and make up your own landscape silhouette to fit the scene.

(P.S. I apologize for the blurry picture….the shiny surface of the tile and ink makes it difficult to photograph)

Stop in at the studio to get a better look at it!

 

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO PAINT NEXT?

If these are projects that tweak your interest, please drop me an email to let me know your interest. 

Also, any other requests/suggestions for class types you’d like to see on the upcoming schedule, please let me know.  It is always a challenge to figure out what students might be interested in….share your preferences and we will see what we can do!

JUST A REMINDER:

Students are requested to provide the following for every class:

• Paper towels or rags
• Palette paper pad (for blending/floating)
• Tracing paper
• Graphite paper (black & white)
• Stay-wet palette for acrylic classes/dry palette for oil classes
• Pen, Pencil, Ruler, Tape, Scissors, etc.

Artfully Toled Studio carries basic supplies for classes, and if I don’t have the items in stock, I can order them for you - or recommend alternatives to suit your painting needs.

For the convenience of all students attending a class, please ensure all preparation work is completed prior to the first class. All classes start on-time. Please arrive a few minutes early to allow time for getting set-up and ready for class.

Students may wish to bring along indoor shoes or slippers as the basement can be a little chilly on the feet.

Class Fees & Cancellations:

 

Class sizes are limited due to space. The only way to ensure a spot is to register early for the class of your choice.

 

A reminder to all students the following is the registration and cancellation policy of the studio:

  • Entire registration fee is payable at time of registration. I accept Visa, Mastercard, Debit and cash. Sorry no cheques please.

  • Classes missed will not be refunded or credited to another class. Cancellations must occur at least 1 full week prior to the date the class starts and are subject to a $15.00 administration fee.

If there are insufficient paid registrations for a class and I have to cancel a class, you will be notified and your registration fee will be fully refunded or a studio credit issued.
   

For the considerations of your teachers and other students attending the class, students please make sure all pre-class preparations are completed prior to the class. All classes will start on-time, so please arrive a few minutes early to get set-up before class start time. Thank-you.

 

Wait-listing for a full class:

 

Due to limited class room space, classes being offered often fill before you get a chance to get your registration in. If there is a particular project that you are interested in and the class is full, please let me know. I will every effort to schedule an alternative date for another class if there is sufficient interest.

 

Some of the larger sized projects (such as floor cloths and large landscape pictures) we limit the class size to 5 to provide sufficient working space for all students attending. So remember to let me know if there is particular class that you are interested in and you want me to look at scheduling an alternative date.
