“Painting with Freda is so relaxing and fun! Her friendly personality and step by step directions have you painting like a pro before you know it. My confidence in painting has increased tremendously since starting with her free paint nights and joining her paint club. It's well worth the money! And, don't forget to breathe!! Thanks Freda!”Jenn Russel
“A patient and conscientious instructor who knows her medium well: she listens to those participating in her lessons, provides clear feedback and suggestions, and is a joy to listen to. I’ve already learned a lot from the paint sessions I’ve done.”Angela McCabe

Keep it simple! Remember we are going for expression rather than perfection!
Acrylic paint – student grade is perfect. Craft paints are great too! Bring all your favourite colours!
3-4 different size brushes. In most of my paintings I use a size 4/5 small round, a medium size 5/6 Filbert and a 1 inch Flat synthetic hair brushes.
Canvasses or mixed media paper - some people paint on rocks, saw blades and even furniture!
Water to clean brushes
Paper towels / paint cloth, a rag
Paint palette (paper plate will work)
Use what you have! improvise Get creative.
Remember this is fun art not fine art!
Make the painting your own, change up the colours, ad other elements! Have fun with it! Let your inner artist come out to play!
