If you have been shopping with us for a while, you may remember Amy Shawley Paquette, the awesome Golden Working Artist who broke our hearts by moving out of Downtown Los Angeles and going on and having a great life, kids, and all that. (You probably don’t remember the Paquette part, that happened after DTLA.)
Now that we live in a time of global pandemic and the Internet, Amy is back – virtually – and through May and June will be offering free weekly Facebook Live tutorials on her Art by Amy Shawley Paquette page! These events will happen every Thursday at 4pm PT and will feature a different topic each time. The first demo is Thursday, May 14 on the topic “Customize your Painting Grounds”, and will last about 30-45 minutes. If you can’t catch it live, it will be available from her Facebook page for later viewing.
