Instructor, Trisha Adams has been creating Custom Canvas Floorcloths locally for the past 4 years.   In addition, she is a watercolorist.     This 5 hour workshop will cover the basics of creating your own canvas floorcloth.   This is not a "paint-a-long"; each student will create their own original design.  Your instructor is happy to help out with drawing, layout, and painting if necessary - but promise not to paint on your floorcloth unless you ask her!
Be prepared to paint hard, laugh a lot and go home with a beautiful piece of Floor Art!  Bring a drink and your lunch, we'll only break for a half an hour to eat!
