Here are the classes and workshops I will be offering this summer.  All levels of art experience are welcome here – every class is taught in an atmosphere of relaxation, encouragement and discovery.  Classes taught at my studio are limited to eight people or less. To reserve a place or ask a question, you may call me anytime at 251-510-9615 or email studio@valwebb.com.
