A Word from Tony and Tina
We'll soon be approaching the middle of our "busy season" but we are still scheduling new classes as them come in, so be sure to check back often to see what's been added. As usual for this time of year, classes will fill up FAST so be sure to get your name on the lists as soon as possible. We still have some "open dates" available for classes, so if you are a member of a group, club or organization and would like to have Tony and/or Tina come and demonstrate their painting techniques or to teach a class (in Oils, Acrylics, Basic Watercolor, Pen & Ink with Watercolor or Reverse Glass) for your group in your community, please give us a call for details at: (352) 637-0348 or Email us at:
