NOW HAVE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE DO-IT-YOURSELF FAUX CLASSES|
FL – Most faux schools have a curriculum
that train professionals and cost in the high hundreds or thousands of dollars
for a multi-day class. These are perfect for faux finishers looking to expand
their portfolio, but not so for a homeowner with just one dining room project.
Garay Artisans now offers affordable DIY Classes specifically targeting homeowners
with a base price starting at $99. “Since I’m usually in my
paint clothes, I always get asked for faux advice. These classes are about 3 hours
long and teach homeowners the basics of not only the finishes but of color guidance
and professional application”, says Regina Garay, Creative Director
and Owner of Garay Artisans.
In addition to glazing, metallics, textures
and plasters, an exciting new area of the curriculum is a Cabinet Workshop taught
by Jason Rosales. “Changing the look of your cabinets is a lot easier
and more affordable than you might think. We are teaching how to take your existing
cabinets and bring out the elegance or personality you need in your home. The
products we use provide a baked enamel-like finish that makes your cabinets look
as though they just came out of the factory. We will also teach the basics of
using an HVLP sprayer to achieve the most professional results.”
classes will be taught remotely, meaning that students will not have to travel
to just one location. “We have five locations picked out: Clermont,
The Villages, Downtown Orlando, East Orlando and Maitland. Our goal was to make
sure it was easy for everyone to travel to such exciting classes.”
Artisans have also teamed up with MeetUp.com and will produce an ongoing series
of meetings to discuss any faux finishing projects in a roundtable discussion.
The meetings are free and will be held at House Blend Café in Ocoee, FL. Participants
would need to register at www.MeetUp.com.
“All in all, we feel we are offering the Central Florida community a way
to decorate their home in an affordable way with professional products found locally.
In addition to our classes, they have a wealth of information available in our
Message Forum and Blog.”
