Have you ever wished you could learn to paint with oils?  Or, have you painted in the past and need a boost to pick that brush back up and get started again?  Do you long for some time set aside to try something creative?  Now‘s the time!

Julie understands that it takes some nerve to face that blank canvas and she wants to help you overcome those nerves and make some beautiful art.  

This class will be in the studio format in which each participant will be working on their own piece from their own references at their own pace and in their own style.  We will gather at the beginning of class with an activity to get your creative juices flowing, then Julie will walk you through getting started as well as over time bringing your painting to completion.  


Julie began painting in 2008 after retiring from a career in education.  She is a Professional Member of the Artists of Texas and an Associate Member of Oil Painters of America.  Oil paint is her preferred medium in both realism and abstract painting. She has had paintings in several juried shows, won an Outstanding Abstract award and been included in an artist focus in an American Art Collector Magazine‘s portrait edition. You can see some of her work at
