Katie O'Rourke, Vermont Artist and Teacher

As a teacher and an artist, I believe in the PROCESS of creativity.  My goal is for you to enjoy the experience and be present in it.

I teach classes to children and adults both in person and online.   

Paint & Sip

  Katie will guide you, step by step, in creating your own unique painting. No experience required. Bring what you would like to sip on and a great attitude. Let's have fun!

Tuesday May 2- June 6

10-11:30 am


6-7:30 pm

Let's explore color!

Do you know you can get a deep gorgeous brown or grey by combining complementary colors?

How do you create a harmonious palette?

These are just some of the topics we will be exploring in this dynamic six-week class. Each week we will paint together and start to construct your personal color reference book.  

The cost of this class is $250. We will be using artist quality, golden acrylic paints and each student will receive a hardbound art journal.

* There will be two different times offered*

 Please specify which time you would like when you sign up!


My 12 year old has taken both in person and online classes with Katie. She looks forward to them each week, wishes she could take a class several times per week and practices what she learns. Katie's teaching style is relaxed, fun and engaging. I recommend taking a class from her. It is well worth the price.
