Imago Dei is going to begin offering apprentice applicators the chance to learn from our team of professional plaster and faux artists in our studio located in the Houston Galleria area.
Classes will vary in length and complexity based on the specific course offering.
Faux Finish classes take two days to complete, and they run for approximately five hours per day. These classes will teach you the fundamentals of faux finishing by creating sample boards of various techniques, textures, and patterns. We provide all supplies and help you learn how to use them. Classes with Imago Dei are a great way to expand your knowledge and pick up a new hobby. This class is highly self-motivated, so be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get involved! Your deposit covers the cost of supplies.
All participants should be prepared to get dirty. Plaster and paint commonly stick to clothes, however, we do have a limited number of aprons for use. Closed-toe shoes are required. Anyone with long hair is encouraged to tie it back for the duration of the class. Please arrive ten minutes ahead of our projected start time so that we can jump right into the class. Being late may affect that amount of samples you can produce and the quality of those samples. For now, please call 713-520-5557 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make your deposit payment or for any questions.
