Our Studio at Large is proud to offer classes from this Master Artist.  Steve has perfected the art of Wood-Graining and Marbling and has taught all over the country and now will be offering his courses at The Studio at Robyn Story Designs.  In these introduction workshops Steve will teach you the basics of these techniques.  His goal is to show you how easily you can transform the pieces in your own home after taking the basic introduction class.  Imagine the transformations you'll be able to do including your own mantles, columns, cabinet doors and furniture .  So if you've thought of hiring an artist to transform them for you, invest in yourself, take one or both of these classes and find the artist within.

There are two workshops, one for Wood-Graining and one for Marbling.  Sign up for one or both!  If you register for both classes we will take 10% off of your total. 

Steve Wallis is a member of IDAL and previously served on the board.  He has been and is always involved in Philanthropic projects.

If you've always wondered how to do these techniques, please join us for a fabulous and creative day at The Studio.  You'll be glad you did!!
