you could do!
How would it feel to

Hi, I'm Jennie
I get it. Most people think that they aren't creative. I believe we were born creative, and just need some help to embrace that side of ourselves again. I will teach you how to free up your creative juices and let them flow! I’m a professional artist and teacher, and drawing and painting is my passion!
Since earning my art degree, I’ve taught hundreds of folks over the years to create paintings and other works of art that they can be proud of. I’ll be your guide down the light hearted, empowering path of creative discovery. Spend a couple of fun filled hours with me - and if you’ve ever thought, “I can’t”, I’ll show you how you can!
I craft my parties to be rich, meaningful experiences where you can let the artistic process be easy and fun!
Testimonials from our Paint Nights
So much fun! I loved art, wine, and the experience of learning to paint. Jennie really is an amazing teacher!
Adam - Bend, OR
Your instruction was easy to follow, and it was really cool to see how everyone had their own style and there was no right or wrong. I can't wait to go to another painting party - it was a blast!

With Jennie, anyone can paint! She made me feel like an old pro and helped me make the painting how I wanted it.

What to Expect
1. Public events~ I provide all the materials and set everything up. Food and beverages are available for purchase.
Private parties~ I provide all the materials and set everything up at your location of choice (home, office, event space, vacation rental, covered patio, etc.). You provide your favorite snacks and beverages and start enjoying!
2. I kick off our event with a welcome, a toast, and a brief explanation of how things work in our 2 hour painting party. Then I’ll give you a tour of the materials you have in front of you.
3. As you sip n’ snack, I'll lead you step-by-step through our painting, all you have to do is follow instructions!
4. When our paintings are done, we'll take some photos to celebrate and you’ll walk away with a finished 16x20 acrylic painting on canvas that you’ve done yourself. That's pretty empowering, and it's also a lot of fun!
What You'll Learn
We start with the background or base layer. This is nice and loose, you can experiment with color and texture as I walk you
through this step.
We create the middle ground. This will be the main image of our painting. We get to play with volume, form, composition, perspective, and more color. It starts to take shape.
We add foreground and detail. Here we add things like shadows, line work, texture, and the details that make
our image look real, grounded,
