It will be on a first come first serve basis with payment received.
Postponement of classes
As this is plein air, weather conditions play a major role in whether we can paint outdoors. If we have severe weather warnings, classes maybe postponed. Please ensure that you are fine with this. There are ways we could still paint from my studio.
There will be no refund if you changed your mind after paying.
I will update this site for any workshop that is filled up. Please check before you pay.
Looking forward to an awesome Spring and Summer!
