Come and Paint with Joan Darflinger at Life Plex in Plymouth, Indiana.
Joan returns to Plymouth, Indiana and St. Charles, IL each year to conduct art workshops. Dates TBA.













Joan’s Workshops are like none other. Her step-by-step approach to teaching takes away all the mystery of the process as she makes it easy to understand by demonstrating each and every step while you watch, learn and then simply imitate the steps she has demonstrated on your own canvas.


Darflinger offers different subjects in every workshop project enabling the students to learn all her tips, tricks and techniques for all the different subjects. She also wants each student to learn the importance of every element of the process that is necessary to create a GREAT painting.No prior knowledge or experience is required. If you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced ability artist you will learn a wealth of information as her workshops are designed for all ability levels.


Her Workshops can be from two days to a full week of different subjects/projects from still-life, florals, landscapes, seascapes etc. She limits the numbers of students in her Workshops so each and every student receive the personally supervised instruction each student deserves. She conducts her popular Workshops from coast to coast.
