Location: Colwood, B.C.
Daytime/Evenings by Appointment
LetÃ¢â¬â¢s Paint! is the art studio you can have fun learning to paint with oils, acrylics, ink & oil, mixed mediums. Create paintings on canvas, murals on walls, faux finishes on furniture, & so much more! ItÃ¢â¬â¢s an encouraging, inspiring atmosphere, where you can feel comfortable growing as an artist & build wonderful friendships with other amazing painters along the way. Book your appointment today to come over for a visit to the studio & plan your first painting project with Sharon.
You can learn how to Ã¢â¬Ëre-purposeÃ¢â¬â¢ furnishings for your home. 'Shabby Chic' is a wonderful way of breathing new life into aquired Ã¢â¬ËtreasuresÃ¢â¬â¢ like used furniture. Find an old, brown, banged up coffee table & turn it into a beautful, turquoise & cream, antiqued, two toned conversation piece. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s a great way to save money & use your favorite colours!
Sharon March has painted hundreds & hundreds of designs. Many on surfaces like wood (varnished or unfinished), plastic, metal/tin (new or rusted), garden stones/rocks, fabric/clothing, canvas, driftwood, glass, candles, soap, paper mache, ceramics (unfinished bisque/glazed) terra cotta & card stock/watercolour paper. Also on unique surfaces like motorcylce helmets, mesh screen (screen door), mirror, murals on walls (inside & out), SharonÃ¢â¬â¢s fridge, porcelain, nail art, body painting & on shells. Maybe youÃ¢â¬â¢ve seen some of SharonÃ¢â¬â¢s paintings inside on the walls of a certain cafe in Metchosin :)
With over 25 years of painting experience, Sharon will guide you step by step through to the completion of your paintings. You will learn about prepping/sanding techniques, when do you/not have to seal your surface before painting, how to transfer/draw guidelines, brush cleaning/care, about varnishing/waxing painted surfaces & all of the fun painting in-between!
Classes are step by step, at your own pace, with a max. of 4 painters. Bring your own brushes & supplies, or book ahead to use my brushes & supplies for a palette fee. No experience needed. Hourly private & group classes available.
