It’s Just Paint Art Classes
Why "It's Just Paint"?
Because for some reason, as women, we can put way too much stress on ourselves, self judgement, we have a flawed perception of our talents and we do not allow our child within to come out and Play. This is a class designed to allow your creativity to come forward. No Stress. Seriously, if you donʼt like it, paint over it or cut it up for bookmarks. This is not about perfection or becoming a Picasso (great if it does) but really, this is about allowing your artistic side to reconnect you to the joy in your life.
It's a safe fun relaxing experience that is meant to spark your creativity and your desire for play or expand on what you already do.
This is not your "paint what I paint" kind of class either ( I may have a bit of an issue about being told what to do) so I give many options. You are encouraged to pick from samples, but you don't have to paint what everyone else is painting. You choose so you are more likely to enjoy it, play and have fun with your art work and want to hang it up.
You have more options:
- Choose one of the regularly scheduled art classes in my studio OR
- Pick a date, an afternoon or evening and the art project that works for you.
Then gather together the women you love and want to spend time with, friends/family/coworkers. Enjoy time together. Maybe celebrate a Birthday, Bachelorette Party, a Work/Team Building opportunity or for no reason at all.
Choose the Location
- In the winter you can come to my home studio, a beautiful space to create ( check out the pictures). This allows for about a maximum of 12 people, depending on the art piece.
- Summer, you have the option of coming to my cabin for a class and then we max out at 6 people.
- You can also choose your own location, home, hall or bar ( so much to choose from)
No experience necessary and know that all the supplies will be taken care of.
To book your own "It's Just Paint" Class you need a minimum of 2 people and the maximum will be determined by location.

From Our Students
You do a wonderful job of teaching. Totally enjoy all your classes. You always pay close attention to detail and help us see some things we don't see for ourselves. My paintings at home never turn out as good as the paintings you help me with.
Helen's classes are a perfect escape from my hectic life! I prefer the acrylic classes and have made signs for myself and as gifts, and even took a damaged TV table and made it beautiful using Helen's materials and expertise. Helen makes all of her guests feel like artists and truly brings out the creativity we all possess.
I have taken one paddleboard session and loved it. I hope to be able to do more of that in the future.
I took one of your water colour classes and enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and no pressure to produce a perfect piece. You were very supportive and encouraging.
