"Directed Open Studio" Painting Classes

"Directed Open Studio" is an opportunity for beginner and adventurous artists to paint in a professional studio. It is open to all artists who want to paint and would appreciate the opportunity to paint with other artists. It is not limited to folk art or historic painting. The artists who have been attending are working with oils, acrylics, watercolors in their own style and on their own paintings.


Johanne offers her perspective when artists request feedback or want assistance with the development of a personal project. She also suggests projects within the context known as "folk art" to those who enjoy that form of self expression.
