Art Immersion Workshop

Come Paint With Me!

 July 13 -15 2017 - At the Art Center in the Westhaven Resident's Club,  401 Cheltenham, Franklin, Tennessee 

Space is limited, so register early to save your seat!  Scroll to bottom of page to register NOW!

Spend THREE days at Westhaven with Deby Dearman. Hear her fascinating story of how her darkest night revealed her breakthrough.  Discover why she believes that art can become a key to living your life to the fullest. 

Deby will take you through the same classes that she’s led her students through.

She'll give you permission to play again . . . to escape the chaos of this world and recall the joy of sitting down with a new box of crayons. We'll use various techniques to paint our stories and put bits & pieces of our lives on canvas. 

Deby takes the fear out of painting and allow you the freedom to explore, take risks and have some good ole fun! 

We begin class by lighting a candle while Deby says a prayer, then we enter into the world of creativity where there are no rules or limits. 

Come explore the possibilities!
