Build Your Own Workshop (BYOW)

Build Your Own Workshops (BYOW)

Do you and your friends want to do something different; want to just get out; be creative and spent some fun quality time together.

Then how about building your own workshop, an art class where you pick both the painting project and the day for your workshop.

All you have to do is get three friends plus yourself together (MINIMUM 4 PEOPLE).

You can make your group from:

– a bunch of co-workers

– your art group OR CREATIVE GROUP

– family and friends


Cheryl Poulin, a good friend of mine, describes this kind of event as:

“an awesome excuse for some grown-up play time!”


And I couldn’t agree more; heck you can even bring a bottle of wine if you wish.


Make sure everyone one in the group brings

  • their lunch,
  • an apron
  • and of course their a smile

And we can all play in my sandbox.

Some get real crazy when they are here.


This is a great excuse to:

  • Bring family and friends together to do something different, fresh and maybe new.
Sharing the joy of painting is an interesting gift to share with friends and family

Is painting on the bucket list?

  • Celebrate a special birthday (a very cool birthday gift, a memory that could be shared and remembered)
  • A team building or employee award bonus (a hair dressing salon owner used this BYOW as an excuse to provide her employees with a special, unique Christmas bonus experience.)
  • Enjoy some mother daughter and friends time.


You don’t need previous painting experience.

You don’t need any artistic talent.
Can’t draw a straight line? No problem

My step-by-step wet-on-wet oil painting instruction ensures that everyone will go home at the end of the day with a finished painting.

Book your BYOW soon. Available workshop shop dates are limited. All workshop are held in my Arnprior, ON studio/classroom

The Studio Thirty Eight Classroom

I provide a fun, creative environment, here in my professional studio/classroom. The bright, comfortable classroom established in my home provides space for 7 students, max, and each student has their own individual table and space.

Your Instructor

I am a Certified Bob Ross instructor in both Florals and Landscape. I took my extensive training at the Bob Ross School of Art in New Smyrna, Beach Florida


The Studio Thirty Eight Workshops

You can see all of the workshops that I have scheduled for the year on my web site at or you can just go to and browse the web site.

For my workshops I charge $65 per person, per workshop; and as you will see from the web site I supply everything needed to paint the project in a day. This includes paint, brushes, easel, palette, cleaning supplies, all for use in the classroom, and a pre-stretched good quality canvas, sized to suit the project. Students need only bring 3 things to my workshops:

1. their lunch

2. an apron

3. and a smile.

Equipped with these things we can all paint together and experience the Joy of Painting.

My workshops start at 9:30 am and finish approx 3:30 pm. Coffee, refreshments and snacks are supplied, with students eating their lunch in our dining room.

Each student receives a certificate of completion for each workshop.
