Classes and Workshops

 What better way than to carry on a tradition than to teach it to others?

Classes are regularly offered at sites around Baltimore and the surrounding region.
On-going programs taught by Master Screen Artists are offered on demand and seasonally.
Consider a private screen painting party featuring a class in your own home to teach adults and children.
No matter the venue, you will have the secrets and a finished screen in hand at the end of the class
