Painted Photograph Personal Photographs – Use your own photographs 

The Painted Photograph Family Portrait *Stella’s Signature Class


“…Lost memories, treasured photos, special days, links to the past…” Dream up your own Painting using your precious photos of family, friends, Travel, pets, events!  The possibilities are as endless as your imagination.

Paintings make fantastic gifts that are truly unique and intimate to whom and what your care most about. Use your beloved photographs near and dear to your heart to create an original work of art.

, guests learn to combine treasured photographic imagery and collage with paint to make a cohesive 18 x 30 inch work of art

Each guest is asked to bring a collection of  3 photographs to choose from (we will only use three). Colour or B&W, between the sizes of 4×6 – 8×10, printed off before the class. NOTE (if you do not have a printer you may bring hard copies and for $7.00 we can scan and print 3 B&W 8×10 photographs).

 –   In the beginning of the class you will chose, combine and collage the photographs you have brought to tell your desired story or memory. You will then learn to adhere the images to our paper.

 –  The guests will learn to embellish and blend their photographs with paint.

–  Guests will continue to embellish with paint/crayons/pastels and more to leave with a finished unique work of art, based around family, friends, pets, travel or anything else that is dear to your heart.

 Stella Pagani has a Bachelors of Fine Art with a double major in Painting and Photography from OCAD University. She is an active artist and teacher and has shown extensively throughout her career.

Side note- Please be mindful we are using acrylic paint and although each guest is given an apron we do suggest you wear something you would not mind getting a little messy
