Embrace Your Artistic Side

Embrace Your Artistic Side

Attend one of our monthly workshops

Barb's Fine Art isn't only a place to buy beautiful art. It's a place where you can make your own. Get those creative juices flowing as you learn new painting and drawing techniques. These workshops are for everyone, from beginners to professionals.

We have six workshops available at our studio. All ages are welcome at our workshops. We encourage creativity and imagination no matter where you are on your artistic journey.

Call 319-373-1090 today to ask about our upcoming workshops.

Join us for our next workshop

In a typical workshop here, every participant works on their own project at their own pace. Barb will check in with you and provide guidance and feedback.

If you request it, we'll hold a demonstration to teach specific painting or drawing techniques. These workshops are all about growing and learning. They are constructive and encouraging, not purely judgmental.

Come to one of our workshops soon to see what it's all about.

About the Workshop:

  • When: Sunday 2019
  • Time: 8am to 1pm. This is about a five hours workshop. During the day, you will have a one half hour break
  • Cost: $65: to be paid one week prior to the workshop, by check or cash.

You will need:



  • Art Supplies: (Supplies are not included). For your convenience, supplies and equipment may be purchased at Barb's Fine Art Studio a day before the workshop.
  • Beverages and snacks, if you prefer to bring.
  • Idea: set up in your yard and start to paint and see if you have everything you need a day or 2 ahead of class. So hard to do a class when you forgot something.
  • Also if you want an umbrella for shade go online and order one. That is where I got mine and I do not intend to share it.
