Paint Parties

In June 2015 I decided I wanted to do something different with my friends. I wanted to host a paint party since it was something we wanted to do, but we never had the chance to do it together. I reached out to Rowena Finn since she offered a mobile paint class. This allowed us to plan for a date that worked best for all of us. She is very easy to work with and will also help you choose a design depending on what you’re looking for. When she teaches, she’s very patient and explains each step as you go along. The best part is that she brought all of the paint supplies that my friends needed in order to create their own masterpieces. I highly recommend her services and would not hesitate to book another paint party with her again.

Rowena did a paint party for my daughter's 7 year-old birthday party. The girls painted an Elsa Castle. Rowena brought all the supplies and even cleaned up. She was patient and kind with the girls as they created their masterpieces. Everyone had a wonderful time and left with something special to hang in their rooms. It was easy and stress-free. Thank you for helping my daughter's birthday so special.

Art Instruction


Rowena is clearly a talented artist in her own right. In addition, as a teacher, she is very knowledgeable in teaching the basic essentials in drawing, as well as in providing individualized instruction and invaluable feedback to individuals with advanced drawing skills. Always positive and encouraging, she meets the student artists where they are developmentally, always respecting their individuality and creative spirit, as she accompanies them on their journey to becoming the best artist they can be.

Hello! I hope you remember me from Jerry's Artarama on Saturday July 18. I was the drop-in first time drawing student from Michigan. I am finally getting back into my routine this week after my trip. I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed myself and you helped me to feel so comfortable in my first real drawing lesson. You got me excited about drawing. I am going to enroll in a LifeLong Learning class at the Community College here the next session. I am hopeful that this will do until I get moved to VA BEACH. THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DAY SO SPECIAL!!!

I've learned a lot from taking classes with you. I feel much more comfortable using new or different mediums than I was before. I have benefited greatly from these classes and will definitely use these new skills for future projects.

Rowena is not only a fabulous artist, but an incredible drawing instructor.  She has taught my daughter so much and given her great self esteem, as well.  The care and personal interest Ro takes in her students makes all the difference.
