- WORKSHOPS -

 

Workshops are hands-on experiences where attendees have the opportunity to play with paints in a variety of techniques and take home their projects!  These can be set up through art stores, art associations or small groups and can be booked by anyone, anywhere nationally and internationally!  If you are interested in setting something up, please contact me at amyshawley@gmail.com.  I look forward to working with you!

Below is a list of my current workshops, please note that they are listed by state and workshop dates/details are subject to change at anytime.  I'm always adding new dates and topics, so if you don't see something you want to attend, keep checking back or join my mailing list to receive event announcements!
