Private Painting Lessons Available


Here’s a fun quick selfie we took last week after our private painting lesson. First off, big shout out and THANK YOU to Ms. Jude Kusnierz of the Beaumont Studios for referring Ben to me for private painting lessons in abstract mixed media painting. Second off, meet Ben Lumb, he is a master craftsman in stone work and owner of Coastal Stonescapes (  It’s a pleasure to inspire and facilitate his journey in painting!

Interested in receiving one-one-one lessons and learn to paint mixed media abstract painting from start to finish? You can learn the basics of abstract painting – the 3 C’s, the 3 WOW’s (how to make your painting fantastic), and how to critique and complete your painting. Diving into the beautiful process with Deb, your lessons will be tailored to your individual needs and wants as per your interest and passion. Some options will be creating in layers by adding and removing paint; mixing heavy body paints, tinting & shading, creating texture, lifting and staining, glazing with polymer mediums, and adding mixed media. Private classes are structured so that you are given information and inspiration, this may include a slide show or a demonstration, and that you set out afterwards to do your homework and painting time. Classes include  handouts.

Dates: You choose! We will go for six one hour classes, each week, for six weeks.

Location: Deb’s home Studios in Kitsilano, Vancouver, BC, Canada or online via video conferencing using (you’ll need a computer!)
