Have you ever wanted to try oil painting but were afraid to try? These classes do not require drawing skills and they are also NOT paint by number. Beginners welcome!

My name is Peggy Porter. I am an Alexander Art Certified Instructor and also an authorized Wilson Bickford Painting Partner. I have been painting most of my adult life, taking classes locally, on-line and learning from painting projects in books. I love painting and teaching!

I have always wanted to teach others how much fun it is to paint, so when I retired from full-time work I decided to pursue my dream. It is very rewarding to guide students from a blank canvas to a completed painting. The student’s smile and surprise at the end of the class brings me joy.

Thank you for visiting my website.
