Open Studio Acrylic Painting Classes are designed to inspire you. Whether that means finishing one painting or starting a lifelong adventure in art. My relaxed, loosely structured class is designed for everyone, all skill levels are welcome.

Paint together with others, while working on the project of your choice. Bring what ever you’re working on or start something new. Bring your own supplies or use mine! Plenty of individual attention plus discussions and demos that will be helpful to you to apply towards painting!

A touch of glassJanice Osborne, Glass Artist

Janice, who lives in La Quinta, started her career in Glass in the late 70’s doing stained glass, windows, doors, lamps chandeliers and even room dividers.  About ten years ago she decided to broaden her glass knowledge using the kiln to fuse and manipulate glass.  Each piece is hand crafted and takes several days to make with multiple firings. Today she is enjoying making her jewelry from glass she designs herself and her standing glass cats, dogs, wind chimes and the “Galaxy of Colors” Wall hangings are all made to decorate your home and hopefully, put a smile on your face.

Melody Manning – Cohn

Music and art were my favorite subjects in school and after raising my children I made a promise to myself that art will once again be a part of my life.

When I met my husband Gideon, he encouraged me to paint and I've been busy painting for the last 4 years. I realized there is much to learn and approached painting with an open mind and free spirit, working towards my desire to become a professional artist.

Doug Price

Price has been experimenting with woodwork projects for over a decade. He harvests wood from his 115-acre ranch located on the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. When Mother Nature decides to "discard" a beautiful cedar or black walnut tree, Price rescues the fallen tree and gives it a new purpose in the circle of life. His wooden candle holders, cheese boards, end tables and outdoor art pieces, each uniquely crafted, are beautiful works of art and great conversation pieces in many homes.

Martha Lumia

The colors and “hand” of fabric have always intrigued me. Wet felting, which includes Nuno felting, is a combination of raw wool, silk and other natural fibers. I’m entranced by the colors and texture and how the hand agitation of wool fibers into a silk/natural fiber fabric creates a new colorful textural fabric – it’s magical! Come join me as we explore the many facets of wet felting to make scarves, vessels (bowls), flowers and more.

Nettie Roberts

As a science/math teacher, I developed a deep appreciation of Mother Nature's artistic gifts to us in the form of gemstones, pearls, fossils, turquoise and unique shells. I incorporate the best of these in the jewelry I create. Each piece is unique and one of a kind and hopefully a tribute to Mother Nature!!!
