Decorative Painting

Hand Painted Furniture
No art experience necessary! Learn how to take an old piece of furniture and turn it into a hand done family treasure. Learn how to prepare the surface, develop, create and paint designs using pictures, patterns, lettering, sponging, marbling or feathering. Supply list provided and discussed at first class so bring a notebook. At the end of this class, the student will complete a small piece of furniture (small wall shelf or step stool which can be used as a plant stand) supplied by instructor for a fee of $13-$18 payable at first session. Instructor Shelley Lowell is an award-winning visual artist, illustrator, graphic designer and poet. She earned her BFA in Advertising Design and Visual Communications from Pratt Institute. She has taught furniture painting to adults in continuing education departments in many cities including Ridgefield, Baltimore and Asheville.
