Painting parties are a great way to have fun with family and friends! Choose from many past painting examples, or come up with something new for your group!
Do you have a young budding artist? Whether your child is homeschooled, desires additional art classes after school, or wants to improve their artistic skills, River Art Studio is here for you! Lessons are for second grade and up.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
River Art Studio first opened in January 2012 in Bellevue. I offer oil painting classes for adults, art classes for children, and painting parties for children and adults.
I have been involved with art my entire life. My mother J.M. Garner was a portrait artist who began teaching me at a very young age. My art education continued through my formative years, studying art and design at Auburn University, then receiving my BFA from MTSU.
I never thought about teaching until my mother decided to retire from teaching at Nashville State Technical Institute, and I took over. I taught oil painting and drawing classes there for 11 years, and during this time began painting murals for businesses, show homes and private homeowners. After I left Tech, I continued teaching privately and in different locations until the opening of River Art Studio, AND I LOVE IT!
Although I enjoy several mediums, oil is my passion. Following in my mother’s footsteps isn’t easy, but I am forging my own style of portraiture and plein air painting.

Parents, make sure your space is ready for painting! You can join in as well, or stay nearby to help the little ones. This video will be available for you to stop and rewind as needed. If you have paint other than acrylic that's ok! Use markers, crayons, whatever you have- if you don't have canvas, that"s ok too! Appropriate paper will work. Supplies I will be using for this painting:
