Painting Classes & Events

Have you always wanted to paint your own furniture but are too afraid to try? Well fear no more!  Broad Strokes offers group and private workshops to teach you how to make your own garage sale, hand-me-down, or sitting-in-the-garage-for -way-too-long piece of furniture into a beautiful custom piece.  We feature American Paint Company's chalk/mineral/clay based paint which is all natural, zero VOC, eco-friendly, and solvent free.  You will soon discover that these are not just ordinary paint finishes but a foundation of techniques from which you will learn to create your signature looks.  Call today to book your lesson!!!!!!!!!
