Painting with Prayers Art Class

Deby Dearman gives 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 and manila paper; to use your fingers and paper towels to make messes, and then with a few simple techniques, transform your messes into masterpieces.

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

We begin class by lighting a candle, praying a prayer, then we enter into the world of creativity where there are no limits.
