Given a theme, we will provide a lesson based on a famous artist’s painting  using acrylic paints on an 11″ x 14″ canvas.  Parties are two hours long and include guidance and supplies ( canvas, paint and paint brush). Parties are appropriate for all ages.  Scheduling  your party is easy just call Suzanne Lewis at 401-254-1668 or email to find a date.  A small deposit will be required to reserve your space.
