Next Art2Life Studio Class Series dates to be announced! To sign up for the waiting list, please email Ferris at with your name and contact information.

Sign up early for the next ongoing series of Nicholas Wilton’s 6 weeknight studio classes taught in his personal studio located in Sausalito, California. This ongoing course will be especially helpful for those artists who are sometimes challenged by maintaining creative momentum and achieving goals in alignment with your own personal vision or creative path. Artists will find this weekly touchstone incredibly supportive and inspirational. Acrylic paint, tools, and brushes are included but additional materials, depending upon the artist’s preference and particular work will be the responsibility of the artist. Included in the class will be demonstrations, information about finishes, surface, color, texture, collage, great music and, of course, the tremendous energetic lift that comes from working with friends. Come join our great community as we all are inspiring each other to our own greatness!

“Your talent as a teacher, priceless! I can’t thank you enough. I now have the opportunity to jump without the fear of falling!”

– Susan Day, attended February 2014 Art2Life Studio Class


Held at Nicholas Wilton’s Sausalito studio, this class is a playful exploration of the creative image-making process. Utilizing imagery inspired from our own personal stories and life experience, we will engage in a hands-on exploration of fundamental painting principles as well as gaining an understanding of how to sustain our own creative momentum.

During the 6 weeks, we will work on a series of small paintings on wood panels, often working on several pieces simultaneously, leaving little time to worry about success or failure. We will also explore how themes of change and spontaneity enable us to create our own unique artwork, and illuminate life lessons inherent in the creative process. We seek to engage both sides of the brain, inviting mistakes, intuition, and spontaneity, along with our knowledge of the six Art2Life Creativity Principles: value, design, color, texture, risk, and soul.

Join us as we celebrate a process of inspiration, reclamation, and the journey of self-discovery through painting. This class is designed for people from a wide variety of disciplines. All skill levels are welcome. No artistic experience is necessary, only a willingness to play.

Note: Full Payment holds your spot. First come, first serve. This class sells out, so sign up early!
