We heard your requests, and have answered them! We will now be offering REAL WOOD boards as an upgrade option for most classes. Keep an eye out for the "Pick your Product" under the name of the class for the options available for that painting! Painting on real wood is a lot of fun, and makes for great conversation pieces. Our wood boards are proudly made here in the USA in the heart of Amish country. They have been professionally assembled and sanded for the finest and smoothest painting.
