No experience needed to create a masterpiece

Dawning’s Art was founded by Oregonian Artist Dawning McGinnis. Dawning is a talented artist and a dedicated teacher. If you’re taking a class with Dawning online or in person, she creates an inclusive and fun environment, making sure all skill levels and abilities can enjoy success. 

Dawning works hard to only invite like minded artists to teach with her through Dawning’s Art. So be sure that you will only be working with truly kind hearted and fun artists.

During classes paintings are broken down step by step. You truly do not need any experience to follow along and yield great results.

At Dawning’s Art we encourage students to push their limits while having light hearted fun. We promote a stress free experience. Our classes are 2-3 hours long, so most of our students don’t become “master” artists. Creative fun is what we’re all about.

Enjoy all the fun and interaction of a Dawning’s Art class from the safety of your home.
Classes are held through Zoom and led by expert hosts.
Classes are great for ages 12 and up.
HOT TIP: Make sure you have plenty of drinks and snacks on hand before we start!

Join a class at one of our Oregon locations for a fun class filled with laughter and wine, or hold your own private party with your friends and family. We also love hosting corporate team building events.

Our classes are relaxed and fun with many breaks to let paint dry, which gives us time to socialize. Step by step instructions for a seasoned artist guarantees that all students find success.

Painting classes are a great way to celebrate a birthday, holiday, wedding, or just a day out with friends.
