COFFEE PAINTING classes and workshops provide a new approach painting and drawing. All levels of skill are welcome. Whether you are a novice or just want to explore more of your own creative possibility there is something for you in the classes and workshops.
Painting with coffee is monochromatic and therefore it involves working with just one color. You will quickly discover that painting with coffee actually makes painting easier. You will immediately begin to be comfortable with "hands-on" painting and drawing. The workshops open with easy exercises that allow you to loosen up and forget yourself and what you think things should look like. You will be expressing yourself.

So You Think You Can't Paint!
May 18th, 2015 - My first coffee painting workshop
The participants in my first workshop didn't really believe that they could paint but they were willing to give it a try. I believed that if they were willing to try they were going to see that they could paint - in a matter of an hour. It worked and that confirmed my belief. I have created a step-by-step coffee painting tutorial to help you get started.
