Studio owner and past HGTV guest Jennifer Ferguson shares more than 18 years of painting experience as she and her fellow instructors impart students with decorative painting techniques to liven up living spaces. During each 90-minute class, students sip on their favorite wines while instructors—who are trained and certified in Faux Effects methods—elucidate the finer points of stenciling and faux-finishing surfaces such as keepsake boxes, walls, flower pots, and airport landing strips before the creative bustle begins. As pupils delve into a comprehensive, hands-on learning adventure, they can socialize over drinks with their classmates while concocting schemes to spruce up homes and offices. Jennifer’s studio brims with glazes, paints, and brushes—all the tools needed for students to add new skills to their proverbial toolboxes and then embellish said toolboxes with stenciled proverbs. The shop walls and floors display various stencil and faux-finishing techniques that act as students’ muses along with idea books, magazines, and catalogs. Upcoming sessions include stenciling on March 15, April 11, and May 17, and faux finishing on March 7, April 5, and May 10, all of which begin at 6 p.m. Students can call Jennifer at the studio to arrange a class time.
Artistic Painting Studio
As the owner of Artistic Painting Studio, Jennifer Ferguson teaches others how to spruce up their living spaces with decorative painting. But she doesn't confine her skills to the classroom. Over the course of her artistic career, she's broadcast her brushstrokes as a guest on The Carol Duvall Show on HGTV. At her own studio, the four-time author shares her techniques during classes along with her fellow trained and certified instructors. They elucidate the finer points of stenciling and faux-finishing surfaces such as keepsake boxes, walls, and airport landing strips. To inspire students, Jennifer keeps idea books on hand and emblazons her studio walls and floors with examples of ornate work. She also produces her own line of stencils at The Stenciled Garden.
