"I have been a long time fan of Chalk Paint®. My Pinterest board is full of Annie Sloan ideas. After completing my first project--a brown wood mahogany table--with success, I decided to take a class to further my technique. I am so glad that I finally took the class. Patty is a great teacher, who explains and shows in detail, different techniques. We had a great time and came home with not only our projects, but a goodie bag of products. I can't wait to take the next class."

"We attended the kitchen cabinet class with Patty. The class exceeded our expectations! It was informative and fun. There was so much to learn with tips for the beginner to advanced furniture painter. The time flew...we had a blast!"

"In one weekend I was able to transform the look of my kitchen's backsplash by using Chalk Paint® and Efex™ appliques. My ultimate goal was to cover up 9 tiles in my kitchen that had pictures of fruits and vegetables in exchange for a more sophisticated pattern of fleur-de-lis. Patty worked with me every step of the way. She mixed paints to color match the existing surrounding tiles perfectly. She provided me with tutorials on how to apply the Chalk Paint®, how to glue the appliques on, and how to achieve the faux finish look so all the tiles would blend well. I was amazed at how viscous and luxurious the Chalk Paint® was and how beautifully it covered up the old tile with just one coat! I am extremely pleased with how great the backsplash looks now. Before learning about the possibilities of Chalk Paint®, I was considering buying a whole new backsplash which would have cost plenty! Now I feel like it's the kitchen I'm supposed to have."

Much-appreciated feedback from some of our incredible visitors!
"This class is worth every penny! Patty teaches you the true artisan techniques. While in class, we worked on 3 projects: country rustic, modern smooth and European wash. She has me hooked! She really took the time to teach me the basics. Having just moved into our "forever home," we have inherited multiple pieces of furniture from family members. Patty has shown me how to make those pieces my own. She answered all my questions and even gave me ideas on what to do with some of the pieces. I highly recommend going to Paint Passion and taking a class! I know I am looking forward to my next class. Hope to see you there!"

- Tracy S, Advanced Techniques I Workshop student
"The total "hands-on" experience was great, and enabled me to start my painting project the next day, with beautiful results. I highly recommend [Paint Passion's] workshops to anyone who interested in learning the technique. I especially appreciated all of the hints and tricks of the trade passed along. It was great to be able to paint samples and try different techniques before beginning my project on my own. The shop is lovely, and the staff is very knowledgeable and welcoming."

“My husband and I had an amazing experience at Paint Passion. Patty was truly wonderful. As a first timers, we had so many questions and concerns prior to arriving at the store. From the moment we walked in, Patty made us feel at home, and at ease with our project. She answered every question with a smile, and provided us with every bit of instructions needed for our project. I highly recommend visiting Paint Passion. Go in there with any questions because Patty has an answer.”

"I had wanted to take a furniture painting class for ages but always put in on the back burner. Finally, after looking at pictures of beautiful kitchens, then looking at my ugly oak cabinets, I decided it was time for Patty's cabinet class so I could learn from a professional. I was not let down. After contacting Patty, she quicjly coordinated a private class for me that worked around my schedule. Patty loves what she does and it shows. She happily shared her expertise with me and was genuinely pleased with my developing skills. Her enthusiasm and encouragement helped give me confidence I will need to attack my ugly cabinets. I will use the skills I learned for other projects as well. Learning from Patty is like a big warm hug as she shares, encourages and celebrates. I highly recommend her classes."
"If you are thinking of painting cabinets, Patty at Paint Passion is THE ONE to learn from! Patty is such a knowledgeable and generous person. You will learn so much about technique and color theory. Patty will let you explore your own ideas and guide you if you would like some help. The people you meet in class our kindred spirits. Our group had so much fun that we signed up on the spot to take another class together!"
