Trees, Trees...... Let's Paint Trees.

Pant colorful and free-form stately oaks, gnarled ancients, graceful crepe myrtles, or fantasy trees...your choice. Placing paper over wet water-soluble oil paint and using the innovative Touch technique, you can create 20-25  images (each 15' x 20') to take home. This fun, easy process will open the gateway to your own creative landscape and can be meditative, energizing, and surprising all at the same time.

Bring your own photographs, magazine images, use your imagination, or use the instructor's sample images. .Please also bring an apron or wear your "arty" (old) clothes.

We use no brushes and no art experience needed.   All supplies provided..


Tina Alvarez was told as a child she "couldn't draw and was not an artist" and so never pursued a career in art. She instead became an educator, a professional speaker and  an award winning, passionate photographer and Raku potter. Then she experienced an innovative art process that allowed her inner artist to emerge and discovered she could indeed be "artistic". Now a Touch Drawing Facilitator, she has taught this technique for the last five years. The process is fun, unique, requires no art experience  and often surprises the student in many ways.  Tina has facilitated this process at the Craft Guild of Dallas, Dallas Arboretum, A Creative Art Studio (Denton) and in home private workshops.
