Where are classes held?  Classes and workshops are held in the classroom at Still Life Studio or at an off-site location that will be specified in the class description. Private lessons and classes with 2 or fewer students are held in Adria's private studio or in the classroom.

What's the difference between private lessons and group classes and workshops?

  • Group workshops and classes have a set lesson plan that everyone follows, and they meet at a designated time that is fixed. You may not know other people in the group. These classes typically need a minimum of 4 students to run and the cap will vary depending on the subject. 
  • Private lessons are custom tailored to your abilities and interests and everything including the time is customizable. Many students prefer one-on-one instruction, but lessons can be shared with up to 2 additional students of your choice. You will know everyone in your party, and you will have some input into what we study. For a group of 4 or more, we can customize a group lesson or class just for you. Please contact to inquire. 

What's the difference between a workshop and a class? Workshops typically happen over the course of a single day or a weekend. Classes are recurring, for example they will meet every Wednesday from 4-6:30pm for several weeks. 

Can you create a custom workshop or class for me and my friends? Yes! In this case you would have control over the time, subject matter, and other variables. The minimum number of students for a custom workshop is 4. Contact us to start planning your class. 

Do you teach kids? Most of the classes we currently offer are for adults and teens age 15 and older (with some flexibility). As we grow we do plan to start offering classes for kids age 12 and up so please keep an eye out for that. If you have a child or group of kids that would be interested in taking a lesson or workshop please be in touch!

What type of paint is used in class? Adria uses either acrylic or oil paints in her teaching, depending on the student's preference or the focus of the workshop. Other instructors may use a variety of materials. Some workshops will restrict the use of oils and oil mediums so please check workshop descriptions for details. 

What supplies do I need? Classes and workshops will have a supply list in the description, and often supplies can be provided for an additional fee. Private lesson fees include the use of most supplies. Students are asked to provide canvases once we move on to more finished work. 

Where do I park? On weekday evenings after 5pm and all day on weekends, visitors and guests may park in the lot right next to the building on the corner of Elm and Lancaster Streets. During week days parking is on the street or in parking garages located on Elm St. closer to Cumberland/Congress.

How early should I arrive? The studio is open by appointment only, so please arrive no more than a few minutes before your class time. On workshop days someone will be at the door 15 minutes prior to the start time so you have plenty of time to get set up for the day.
