Artistic Happenings in Washington Parish



Ann Warner has recently begun LIVE EVENT PAINTINGS. 

Growing in popularity, live event paintings capture lasting moments of special occasions. From wedding receptions, Mardi Gras Balls, special parties, and ceremonies, this type of painting provides guest entertainment as they see the painting progress. It is a fine art keepsake.

For a live event painting, Ann arrives at the location before the guests arrive and begins “setting the stage” by painting in the room or landspace. When the party begins, she paints focal people and guests.

Dear Painters,

Classes will resume after Labor Day.  I have REALLYmissed everyone!  Soon I will be cleaning and painting the studio in anticipation of classes.

Please let me know your plans for being in class-- yes or no.  Text, call, or email. The class policy is that if you are enrolled in a class and fail to show, you still owe; you have booked my time.  Thank you for your help and understanding. I am doing my best for all with scheduling.  

Class fees have not changed; it is $48 for a four weeksession.  Please buy your painting supplies from me so that I can keep class fees low and pay all the expenses associated with this Franklinton studio.

When you are absent from a class, please contact me in advance, if possible, to have slots available for makeups.  Makeup classes are a courtesy to ENROLLED painters.
