Come join Shawna in a casual, no pressure, relaxed, and positive learning atmosphere.  Shawna’s curriculum covers: composition, color theory, stroke technique, design theory, art history, inspiration, self-awareness, and more.  Classes are small (max 6 students), so you get plenty of one on one time with your instructor.  

Shawna’s classes are unique because she encourages you, the student, to discover and establish your own style while learning to paint.  

“I provide you with the rules, and the tools to create and appreciate your art.”  Shawna C Elliott


The Session I want to register for has already started.  May I sign up anyway?
Yes, if there is space available—absolutely!  You will be pro-rated for the classes you have missed, so you only pay for the remaining classes left to attend in that session.  Contact Shawna directly at (479) 684-7434 to make arrangements.  

I’ve NEVER painted.  Will this class be too advanced for me?  
No. You can join this class no matter what your experience level.  Shawna works with each individual according to his/her skills.  Shawna has taught professional artists as well as complete beginners.  The combination of skill levels within a class offers students the opportunity to learn from each other as well as the instructor.  

How do I select which session(s) I’m registering for?
Once, you have completed the registration form and payment, Shawna will contact you to confirm your session(s) choice(s).  Or, type your session choices in the text/notes box.  Please feel free to contact Shawna at (479) 684-7434 or if you have any questions.
