Q&A with Michelle Lewis, Director, Lead Instructor
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Class instructors are professional artists and matriculated educators. They cultivate individual creativity through step-by-step guidance in color mixing and acrylic painting techniques.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
That everyone has their own style and voice when engaging in the creative process. I love sharing outlets for creative expression with strangers, and in turn watching them realize their own unique gifts and abilities through the medium of paint.
What aspect of your job, or the services you offer, most often surprises people?
The creative abilities of participants who thought they lacked artistic skill.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

wind down from the routine of modern life and engage the mind in a new and challenging way.

Five Things To Know About Johnson Paint Co.
John A. Johnson opened Johnson Paint Co. in 1939, establishing a reputation for stocking hard-to-find items, such as Dutch kalsomine and powdered pigments. Now in its third generation of family ownership, Johnson Paint Co. stands as a well-rounded institution with an impressive clientele that includes many of the city’s hotels, universities, and high-rise office buildings. Here are a few more facts about this Boston-based institution:
There are now three locations. In addition to the original shop on Newbury St., Johnson Paint has spots in Woburn and Waltham.
Some staff members have been on board for nearly 40 years. All that wisdom and experience comes in handy, especially when helping clients find just the right colors for their projects during in-house consultations.
The company has different specialties. These include faux finishing products and decorative painting techniques, including the funky “broken color” approach.
Expansion led the company into the large commercial painting market. The Woburn location is especially well-versed in that arena, catering to contractors, building maintenance accounts, and retail customers.
They carry art supplies, too. In addition to big-project materials, Johnson Paint stocks artist supplies from some of the industry’s top brands, including Golden, Williamsburg, and Winsor & Newton.
