Painted Tiles

Your friends will think you have become a master painter in this simple technique class. Using alcohol inks and basic tools, guests can paint small tiles with designs of their choosing or use one provided by the artist.

Can-Tar

Don’t let the lack of an expensive instrument keep you from learning to play. Make your own “can-tar”, similar to a guitar, but less complicated (it REALLY works). Guests will also learn a song on the can-tar during class.
$40/person. Max. 15

How Classes Work...

Guest books trip with you and chooses their class at that time. (Once a class fills up, guests choose from the remaining options.) Berea Tourism does the rest!

TERMS: Reserve classes 60 days out. Final count for each class due 30 days out to allow artists time to prepare materials. Certain block-out dates apply. One payment to Berea Tourism does it all. Additional classes are available. Inquire when booking your tour.
