A Toast To Art:

Sip And Paint At Rob Shaw Gallery And Framing’s Painting Classes

It’s the middle of the week and you want to unwind. Or maybe it’s the weekend and you’re looking for something fun to do. Either way, if you’ve ever thought about adding a little spice to your usual routine, consider taking painting classes!

 

Painting classes will not only let you learn a new skill, but they’re also a great outlet to de-stress and socialize. Don’t count yourself out if you think you’re not “creative” or skilled in the arts. It doesn’t matter what skill level you’re at. Art instruction is for everyone.

You might have some questions on what to expect and how to prepare for my classes and workshops, so I’ve answered some of them below. I strive to make my art center an inviting place for budding and experienced artists alike. I hope to see you in one of my classes soon.

What Art Supplies Should I Buy Before Attending Class?

If you’re a first-timer or you don’t have art supplies yet, don’t worry because I’ll guide you on everything you’ll need to bring. Once you register for painting classes, supply lists will be sent to you through email. Or for your convenience we offer supply kits available for purchase. 

If you already have some art supplies lying around, please wait until you receive the email so you know if any of them can be of use during our painting sessions.

Can I Bring My Own Food Or Wine To Paint Night?

Yes! Feel free to bring your favorite beverage or snack. I want my painting classes to be a comfortable and relaxing experience for my students, and a little wine might even help get your creative juices flowing. You can sip and paint to your heart’s content!

I do recommend bringing food that’s easy to eat, just so you can keep your hands free for painting. You don’t want to risk getting food on your painting—or getting paint on your food!

What Is The Schedule For Painting Classes At My Art Studio?

I offer two levels of painting classes on oil painting using a palette knife. Classes cost $175, while supplies can be purchased for $100. Classes are held at The Warehouse, 312 State Street in West Columbia.

Intro to Oil w/ Palette Knife

 

This class is offered every Saturday morning, from January 11th - February 8th, 2020.

Classes are held from 10 AM until 1 PM.

Palette Knife Painting

For those interested in palette knife painting, classes are offered every Wednesday evening,

from January 8th - February 5th, 2020.

These classes are conducted from 6:30 until 9:30 PM.

Are Private Parties Or Private Lessons Available?

Yes, I’m available for private parties and one-on-one lessons. Having a ‘Paint Night’ party is a great idea for groups of friends or families looking for a fun activity to bond over. Plus, everyone will have beautiful paintings that they can take home—tangible reminders of a great time with great people.

If you’re serious about getting into painting, I’ll be glad to teach you what I know in a one-on-one session. I’m known for my palette knife technique and paintings that depict the beautiful vistas and landmarks of South Carolina. I have won a number of awards for my work, so you can trust that I have the skill level to really help you improve.
