Paint Kits come in two grades: BASIC and PRO. Basic kits provide a unique experience for novice and one-time painters, while Pro kits are suited for individuals looking to expand their practice with the highest quality pigments. You will also be provided with an easel along with an apron and viewfinder. The Paint Kits are yours to keep and the easels and aprons must be returned to FLAX after the workshop. Workshops, including materials and easel rentals, range from $67.50 - $119.00 (plus registration fees).
