Frequently Asked Questions
Why does GPS take me to the wrong place?
I honestly do not know. I have contacted: Places, google, maps & input my info. Many businesses in Liberty Station have the same problem. So we have to go old school and look for landmarks & cross streets.

Yes!, For any of my regular classes @ Liberty Station. Put the San Diego Humane Society as the referral, and I will make the donation on your behalf.
I want to frame my canvas, what do you recommend?
Go for it!. When purchasing your frame let one of the store employees know, so they can show you the extra hardware you need ($2) to accommodate the width of the canvas
Can kids attend the class?
Kids 8-13 can attend class with an adult. Both must purchase a seat and both paint. With this age range the kid needs to have this experience with you.
No exceptions, You CAN NOT sign your kid up and watch while they paint, my studio & class are NOT set up for that.
Kids 13 and older are welcome to attend the class by themselves, though I do recommend taking the class together as its a fun memory for the group.
Do you offer private instruction?
Yes, more info here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
