Seminars and Workshops
hosted by DeAnn's Art Studio and Gallery
Thank you for your interest in my seminars. Each year, I will host a number of workshops and seminars featuring various topics from our studies, collectible designs, Paint it Simply techniques, and more. There is so much to choose from and so much I want to share.
My studio is located in Decatur, Alabama, home of one of the largest historic districts in the south. My seminar classes are held in the heart of "old" Decatur in my art studio located on historic Bank Street.
This area of Decatur is a historical marvel boasting nearly 1000 buildings on the national register. There's plenty to see and do in Decatur to include antique and boutique shopping, eating at some wonderful family owned restaraunts - all conveniently located in the downtown area. The Tennessee River is a stone's-throw away offering lots of recreational activities and the Space Center is only 15 miles away just over the bridge.
Travel is easy as we are located just off I-65 making travel easy from both the north and south. The Huntsville International Airport is just 15 minutes away, making air travel convenient.
The seminar classroom offers plenty of space for students to have a comfortable, educational experience. The lighting is balanced, television monitor hook-up to provide convenient viewing, sink, bathroom, and more.
As policy states, seminar fees vary based on the length of the seminar. There is a non-refundable/non-transferable deposit due at sign-up. The balance is due typically 30 days before the seminar. Most surface fees will be minimal and kept under a $100 total. I provide instruction, study photos, a practice board, class paint and mediums. You will need to bring your basic painting supplies; brushes, palette paper, global palette, tracing paper or acetate, etc.
I will provide morning pastries, coffee, juice and water. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants close by for lunch. Snacks will be provided along with beverages throughout the day. One evening, all students are invited to dinner at my home in the historic district. We love our "new" 130 year old home.
Lodging is easy. There are several hotels in the area just minutes away from the teaching venue. I'm happy to provide you with the names of a few.
As Global Art Supply Southeast, my studio offers a nice selection of art supplies featuring Heritage Multimedia Acrylics, Global Art Brushes, and Global Palettes. Most wood surfaces will be cut special for class by my handy woodman or brought in from a reputable, quality source. If you have any special requests, ask ahead and I will see that you are accomodated.
Warning - when you order iced tea, specify unsweet if you want. Because, here in the south, the only thing sweeter than the tea are the memories you will make painting and learning with us at DeAnn's Art Studio.
