All of Barth's Faux Studio Workshops are designed to give each student the finest education possible. Barth has personally evaluated many different manufacturers' products and will share his knowledge with you.
Our classes are designed so that you can go to your favorite hardware store for faux finishing products or choose from some of the best products imported from around the world. Our goal is to provide our students with the knowledge of how different faux finishing products and decorative painting techniques work together so that you can achieve the end result you desire.
One faux painting class at Barth's Faux Studio is equivalent to taking many different classes from other studios because of the diversity in faux painting products and decorative painting techniques that we offer. In addition, our classes are limited to a maximum of 8 students so that each person gets a lot of one on one time with the instructor.
