Workshops

     Inspiring artists to discover their personal palette in life and art.

Come join the fun! Here's a little bit of what others are saying:


"Being in education and teacher mentoring for more years than I would want to admit, I have witnessed my share of superior to mediocre teachers; Jo is one of the best. Through her carefully planned demos, accompanied by step by step finished examples and student handouts, Jo shares her techniques and helpful hints holding back no secrets."  

                                                               D. Bykowski,  Scottsdale, AZ

“Jo Toye is a master teacher. Every moment is packed with great information, tips and techniques for creating unique and beautiful images. She freely shares useful information, demos her love of the process and inspires students to explore, experiment and incorporate new techniques into their individual style of painting.  I highly recommend Jo’s class.”                                                                                             
                                                               C. Bentley, Scottsdale, AZ

"Jo Toye’s class could only be described as an invaluable “Funshop.” Jo’s positive infectious enthusiasm permeates the room to ignite a highly charged creative atmosphere. Jo unselfishly shares her processes in a clear and concise manner. Highly recommended and appropriate for all levels, This is one of the very best opportunities for discovery offered by one of the very best. Not to be missed."
