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. This is also why we now charge $100 - to help ensure that only quality workshops are posted. In addition, every letter features a workshop to ensure that you will be seen by thousands.

If you have any questions, please email workshops@painterskeys.com

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