Class Description:

It’s nearly Valentine’s Day!  The perfect time to join us for a fun afternoon while creating a cake painting fit for gift giving – and enjoying a seasonal cocktail in the process.  This is a no stress class and all levels are welcome. It is the perfect class for someone who would like to venture into painting, and more experienced painters can try something new.

We will have a brief slideshow of cake paintings by various artists and then the fun begins.

All mediums are welcome, oils, acrylics, watercolor, pen and ink, etc.  If you have not painted before, email me and I can give you a small, inexpensive list of supplies you will need.

We’ll indulge in our still life subject after the paintings are done!

Materials provided by students:

Painting Medium of your choice and canvas or paper for your painting.*

Materials provided by the Instructor:  Cake(s)

*Note:  Please email Kathy at with any and all questions about the class.
