Hello All, I just returned from a great trip to Sharlene's Studio in Calgary, Alberta. It's called Artfully Toled. She was a terrific host serving us fantastic meals and ensuring everyone had all they could need. She definitely goes above and beyond to ensure all of us feel at home and relaxed. Everyone's work turned out beautifully! What a great start to the 2010 painting season!

With Love,
Willow Wolfe

Sharlene, I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to you and Gayle for the class yesterday. I really enjoyed myself. Your studio was fabulous and the group itself was great. Gayle was extremely patient and I really enjoyed the class. I cannot wait for more.

PS. Yes, my husband and his friends were amazed that I painted the piece! Yeah me!

Thanks again.

Sharlene’s Artfully Toled home studio is a great place to paint, as you are made to feel right at home, and so you do feel right at home. It doesn’t take long to make friends and have fun while learning a new project or finishing up old ones. Sharlene is always there to help, and she carries almost every art supply you’ll need – if she doesn’t have it, she can usually find it for you! ~ Corinne

It's great to find a studio where we can stretch our abilities, as Sharlene is constantly trying new techniques, maintaining varied mediums and providing each student with one-on-one coaching whenever needed. Fellowship, friendship and fun are they keywords at 'Artfully Toled Studio'!! ~ Kathie


The atmosphere at Artfully Toled is relaxed and fun; there are many projects to choose from and so there is something for everyone. ~ Carole


I travel an hour by transit to reach Artfully Toled Studio because of my love of painting. The bonus is that not only do I indulge in my passion but I get a great teacher in Sharlene. She has a way of teaching that shows me not only the technique but does it in such a way that I feel confident in trying it - that is a special talent. The class is full of learning, laughter, conversation and my "therapy session" all wrapped in one creative welcoming atmosphere. I work in a stressful profession and I find that a painting class in Sharlene's studio is like a week's vacation and a fantastic stress reliever. I enjoy the variety of classes which offers me the opportunity to decide on an easy or challenging class in whatever style of painting I love. Sharlene not only offers lessons but carries everything I require from brushes to a large variety of surfaces to the basics like tracing paper and palette knives - literally one stop shopping. ~ Hilda

The studio provides a very positive and cheery atmosphere. Sharlene is an excellent teacher, encouraging, knowledgeable, helpful, always able to help a person improve their painting techniques and skills. Everyone leaves the studio for home after a great painting time that includes a cup of tea or coffee and a good laugh or two. ~ Edith
