Hecatina Miniature Painting Studio offers several types of classes to help you improve your miniature painting ability.  Our instructor, Geoff Davis, has been painting miniatures since 1979.  He is painting miniatures full time and loves to help other people improve in their hobby. He regularly takes painting classes himself every chance he gets and is up to date on the latest techniques. If you have any questions about the painting classes please contact us.

  • Introductory Painting Classes.  These classes provide the new miniature painter access to paints and brushes and all other resources necessary to paint a miniature.  The participants are provided with a miniature figure which the painter gets to take home at the end of the class.  The class facilitator will provide basic instruction and some mentoring to help the participant learn the basics. 
  • Level-Up Painting Classes.  These classes are limited to small numbers of people and take place in a quiet, brightly lit room to maximize learning potential and mentoring opportunities.  The instructor will take a close look at the participant’s recent painted miniature and provide specific guidance to help them improve their painting.  This may include printed handouts with step by step instructions, real-time streaming of the instructor’s painting process on a display screen and hands-on assistance.
  • Workshops.  These classes are limited to small numbers of people and are focused on a very specific painting technique, like flesh tones, faces and eyes, or object source lighting.  A specific miniature will be used to teach the techniques and will be provided at the class.  There will be a theory introduction followed by lots of hands on practice and mentoring. 
  • Individual Classes.  These classes are limited to an individual student and can take place in a classroom setting or other location.  The class will be specific to the current painting level and questions of the student and will include recommendations for specific projects to improve painting technique. Individual classes can be requested through the contact page.
