Sometimes I'm out & about doing a painting demonstration, running a "paint party" style class or doing library programs for local children--and of course art fairs and festivals. This is the page where I show upcoming events and how to book a "paint party."

"Paint Party" style classes

No experience is needed! These are social times where adults, or children, gather and try their hand at painting together.

Some parties can include BYOB wine; at others we serve coffee tea and yummy treats. For the novice or experienced painter alike, we have a good time!

A portion of the proceeds from some of my classes goes to support a local organization that's doing good work, whether for human beings or for our furry friends.

Email jen@jennilesart.com for dates and locations of upcoming classes. All are held in Massachusetts, mostly Worcester/MetroWest.


Sample Paintings

Here are just a few sample paintings.


Mixed Media "Paint Your Pet"

It's easy and so much fun!

Or we can do "Paint Your Pup - Off The Leash"

...paint your doggie running free!

Use decoupage to add your pets to a painting for hilarious effect!
