Chris Haughey WorkshopChris Haughey Workshop
November 15th 2014

What could more perfect than to paint with Chris Haughey in November? Chris Haughey is a mult-talented artist, instructor, author and shop owner of Cupboard Distributing in Urbana, Ohio. Chris has been painting for more than 40 years. She studied fine art at Ohio University and has a great knowledge of color, brush stroke, multi medium and techniques. Chris teaches and paints some 200 of the most popular designs found at trade shows across the United States. She is very prolific in creating new designs, techniques and using new surfaces. We are so lucky to have Chris teach at DAGSO. Look at her website for more of her wonderful art at This will be a relaxing class taught by a talented, very sweet and patient instructor. Chris will show us how to use stencils as a quick and fun way to paint a Santa also giving us options in interesting backgrounds. The background will be your creation by using the stencils that you prefer, also the color of your choice, either blue or green background. This will be such a delightful class where we decide what we want in our painting. The "Believe" is hand written or Chris will let us use her "JOY" stamp. Your piece - your choice. This project will be so much fun, trying things we have not tried before in this manner. See your own creativity come to life.
