Painting Workshops, Art Lessons & Art Instruction For Artists

The Art Workshop Calendar

"Your announcement will be seen"


Each entry (38 words or less) costs $30, can be installed at any time, and will be removed on the start date indicated. Get started with an easy two step process:

Step 1: Buy Listing → Step 2: Enter your workshop information once your PayPal transaction is complete and you have been re-directed back to this page.

Already paid for one or more listings?

Notice: This feature is one of the most effective pages on the Painter's Keys site. For example, Carla O'Connor's Figurative Watermedia course in B.C.'s beautiful Pemberton Valley in May was sold out in a couple of days with folks travelling from as far away as Norway. We are most interested in helping qualified workshoppers fill their courses. As such, we reserve the right to reject some would-be advertisers and refund their money. We would also appreciate your sending along at least one photo of previous courses in action, preferably showing the instructor(s) at work. We use the photos, without extra charge, in our Workshop feature on the Painter's Keys Discussion Page where it is seen by thousands.

If you need help to post the announcement(s) or have questions about your listing(s) or payment(s), please email Sarah Garland at Robert Genn Studio and please send photos separately to Shawn at Painter's Keys.

Thanks, and good luck with your workshop, whether you're giving or receiving, or both. Robert.
