Workshop – Introductory

Creating the French Look with Chalk Paint™ decorative paint by Annie Sloan.

Would you like to learn how to create inexpensive effects that look like a million dollars – all with a few pots of paint?
Get ready to transform your old and worn out furniture or those garage sale finds into beautiful hand-painted heirlooms!
Our workshops teach the ease and versatility of this paint.
You will take home 5 of your own finished sample boards on which you will have been taught a variety of painting techniques, several distressing techniques and different types of application techniques of both the clear and the dark wax.  You will also have the opportunity to complete a small project and receive a hand painted Annie Sloan Colour Chart.  Most importantly, you will take home the KNOWLEDGE and confidence to complete your own projects!
Be sure to register early as class sizes are limited to a maximum of five to allow for lots of hands on training and one on one teaching.

Workshop participants have their say:
 I just finished the beginners level for Annie Sloan paint on Sun with Debra and I had a fantastic time. Thanks Debra for creating such a welcoming and learning environment in your home. I am looking forward to the next level when you have it available. I highly recommend Debra’s class to anyone wanting to try the Annie Sloan products. So many finishes are possible and it is amazing to work with. – Patty M

So in spite of what I’ve heard about how easy Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan is to work with, I’m still glad I took this workshop instructed by Debra Boeyenga, owner of A French Touch. I learned so many tips and techniques that will make my life easier, and I’m sure my paint and wax will go a lot farther as a result!   – Sheila Z
