2019 Painting Groups in Merrill!

We are getting together at the Merrill Enrichment Center on January 28th at 8:30 AM! Think of it as a chance to explore artistic talents and spend some time doing something fun. We are PAINTING! Acrylics on canvas, with "January Thaw" to bring warm thoughts even in midst of the cold season. There will be new themes each month. You are welcome to follow the FACEBOOK link below and make suggestions!

Everything you’ll need will be provided, including: 16 x 20 canvas, paints, brushes, easel, & apron, as well as guidance as needed. Join this fun group and try it out!

Classes will last approximately 2 1/2 hours and the cost is $25, plus a nominal facility fee.

If you would prefer a smaller canvas, you can choose a 12 x 16 and the cost is $15.

Each day that this is offered, we will have room for up to 16 artists, initially. Minimum participation of 4 is required to hold this PAINTING GROUP so be sure to register through the Merrill Enrichment Center!

Create A-Way Paint Parties & Therapeutic Arts is available for scheduling a fabulous time at your gathering, whether it is a bridal shower, church gathering, or stress buster at your office. I will provide the canvases, brushes, paint, easels, floor/table covering, and aprons, and will set up, clean up, and paint along while providing guidance. You will leave with a piece of artwork that you created, feeling re-energized, and happy to have spent quality time doing something good for yourself, and fun with friends and co-workers.


Click                 to SCHEDULE YOUR PARTY.   Follow the PINTEREST link to a gallery of painting ideas for your party. Once there, just open the category that says "Pick one of theses for a Great Party!"


This is just to give you an idea of artwork that can be easily done for a group; the artwork that is my own, is under the category, "My Gallery", which you may certainly pick from as well. If you see something you like, but would like certain changes, please just let me know and I can customize it.


You can also email: createawayart@gmail.com with additional questions, or just send me a note in the Contact Box.


Kids' parties, retirement parties, housewarming, and scouting events are just a few more ideas for making it a PAINT PARTY!

Treat yourself to something fun!



Create A-Way is new- it’s more than a “Painting Party” business. This is not a franchise owned by a big company; or one from out of state; it’s just me (with an occasional helper). I’ve lived in the area for over 18 years and am happily single, raising my two kids in the country. I’ve always felt that our area would benefit from another option to have kids’ birthday parties, scouting events right in town, after-school options, and just plain “Girls Night Out” or “Guys Night Out” that didn’t need to be at bar, but could be if you wish, so that you can include your kids. At $25 for private parties or classes with a 16X20 canvas, $15 for kids’ parties with an 12X16 canvas, and $15 for special painting workshops, it’s easy to see how this is truly affordable fun for the whole family! Private painting lessons are also available, as well as consignment paintings.

New! Watch my YouTube painting video to see "Winter Pine cones"

Golden field colorful trees, digital art for example of beautiful acrylic, any season great to Create A-Way

Here are two ideas that are sure to turn out great on your own canvas! I've always loved to paint trees! I did these both on a digital painting program that has many similar characteristics of acrylic.  Actual paint and canvas are still my favorite, but these give a really good idea of art that is not hard to do and yet turns out beautifully!
