Join us in April for our annual meeting at Epworth by the Sea in St. Simons, Georgia. We offer quality classes in a comfortable and relaxed learning atmosphere. Our goal is to help our teachers and students expand their knowledge of art materials and take that back to their students and friends.
Our teachers are versed in all styles of painting mediums and have years of experience at their personal studios as well as the large National conventions. Many of our instructors have international teaching experience as well.
While We have classes morning noon and night with group breaks for lunch and dinner, we like to have fun with quality donated raffle items and our Country Store. On Sunday we raffle the generously donated class samples from our teachers.
