What is provided

We provide all art supplies, tools, gloves and aprons. However, if you have a special crystal, gemstone or piece of glass that you’d like to use in your resin projects, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help you incorporate your personal items into your piece. We recommend wearing your favorite clothing to paint in.

 

Safety & Masks

All of our work stations are partitioned with clear plastic, so you can see and talk to others while maintaining a safe social distancing environment. Though our space can accommodate up to 50 participants, we are accepting no more than 12 people at any given time. Gloves are used (and included) when working with most of our art projects Masks are required for 2 reasons – 1. for Covid safety, and 2. because it is recommended when working with resin. If you’re going to wear a mask anyway, you might as well make beautiful art at the same time!

 

Storage and Pickup

We will store your art during the workshop to allow for proper curing after sessions. All items must be claimed within 1 week at the conclusion of the workshop.

 

Makeup Classes

If you miss a class, you can make it up during another session if space is available, or during other designated times to be determined.

No paint brushes will be used or harmed during this process. No straight lines will be drawn.
