Newbies welcome! No experience or “talent” required.
 
Learn to paint wonderfully easy pieces of art, step by step, as taught by Sid Korpi, “professional dabbler
in many arts.”* Even if you’ve never touched a paintbrush before, you WILL successfully complete an
original painting during this class and have a blast doing it. Keeping the groups small (4–12 painters
per class—namely, you and your friends) ensures you’ll get the personal attention you want. 
*Award-winning actor, writer, dancer and artist—with 30+ years of teaching experience.

Every time I teach a painting class at one of the Just Arting Around private painting parties, I wind up with another original piece of art in the various designs chosen by my customers. That means I have a stockpile of unique 11x14-inch paintings (* means another size) I'd like to see get good homes. I am selling these at the ridiculously low price of $25 apiece (plus shipping and handling if mailing is required). I will periodically add images to this page to show you what is available.
