Painting Pizzazz This is Sherrill's most popular class, teaching painting techniques from A to Z.

Each day is very intensive with extensive demonstrations and hands on experiences. The painting techniques can be created on any porous surface such as fabric, illustration board, cardstock, wood, leather, etc.

Each student will leave class with a variety of techniques to use in their creative endeavors. These techniques include rubber stamping, simple printmaking, resist, glazing, stenciling, wet into wet techniques, creating textured surfaces for painting using alternative tools and much, much more.

Sherrill is a retired public school teacher. She teaches her classes nationally and internationally and has written six books. For more information, visit Sherrill Kahn's website.
