faux Painting Class overall
The Faux Finish School classroom is well lit with natural light as well as full spectrum overhead lighting. Each student has their own work area, easel, and faux finishing supplies to help assist in achieving the finest results. Working decorative painting wall finishes upright, gives the student more of the feel of "working a wall".

The classroom is furnished with commercial-free satellite XM Radio with over 130 channels to help get the juices flowing as you create and master your faux painting techniques!!
