Open Studio

This workshop is for Country Comforts graduates of Chalk Paint® 101 only and is non-instructional.  It is meant to allow students to explore color, techniques, and products with an instructor available to problem solve and/or clarify techniques.

Students bring a small piece (to be pre-approved by Lori, owner of Country Comforts) to complete during their reserved time.  A small piece can be defined as being able to be carried in by participant solely--such as a chair and/or a small table.

The workshop paint bar will be open and available for use along with stencils, waxes, and brushes.  Projects are to be taken home with participants at the end of the business day

Cost:  $45
