Adult Art Workshops

Hi, I'm Natalie. Let's create together! 

Natalie brings 17 years of experience in education leadership to a new format: leading art workshops for adults! As an art workshop leader, Natalie creates a safe, inclusive, welcoming space for adults to connect (or reconnect) to their innate creativity, exploring techniques and materials to create a custom art piece by the end of the class. 

Natalie has been leading highly popular (and sold out!) art workshops in local spaces in Maplewood & South Orange, New Jersey. She is opening her schedule to now offer these workshops more widely in NYC or northern NJ - let's books yours now, and create together! 


Adult Art Workshops, Booking Now!  


Abstract Floral Painting - in this workshop, Natalie uses fresh flowers to model a simplified process of sketching, abstracting, and painting a floral design on an 8x10 canvas and matching to a painted, thrifted frame. All participants create their own art work -- no paint by number or paint & sip model here! -- inspired by their own unique and expression. Natalie provides all paint materials and frames. No painting experience needed, all levels celebrated! We are ALL creatives!  CLICK HERE TO INQUIRE & BOOK


Thrifted Glassware Painting - in this workshop, Natalie models a technique to paint simplified designs onto sets of thrifted glassware using enamel paint. The glasses can be "cured" by baking in a standard oven once dry, making the paint permanent, and the glass designs dishwasher safe. Natalie provides all paint materials and glassware. No painting experience needed, all levels celebrated! We are ALL creatives!  CLICK HERE TO INQUIRE & BOOK
