Our Classes

bruce_slatonStyles and tastes change just like the economy. At surfaces, we are sensitive to students’ needs to sell finishes in a dynamic market. We are constantly up-dating our samples, testing products, and working with decorative artists to offer the most up-date classes. Our mission is to offer quality personalized instruction that educates you in the best techniques, products, and project management.

Our classes range from a few hours to a few days and address the needs of the enthusiastic Do-It-Yourselfer to the seasoned professional. Every year we add two new wall and two new cabinet collections. In addition we repeat our most popular collections and best-selling foundation classes throughout the year. Our cabinetry/furniture classes are nationally recognized and our studio specialty.

We recognize that decorative painting is diversified. Our classes cover walls, ceilings, cabinets, and furniture. Surfaces offers monthly creative studio classes that explore using faux finishing techniques for art canvas and craft projects.


You may register on-line or over the phone (913-888-9996). We require a non-refundable deposit to hold your place. In the event of an emergency, your deposit will be held in a house account that you may apply to a future class within a year. Registration balance is due the day of class. We offer a 50% registration discount for students who would like to repeat a class to update/make another sample set.

Surfaces provides all materials and written instructions so you may focus on the hands-on instruction. Private individual and small group classes are available. Please call the studio at 913-888-9996 for pricing and available dates. Whatever your experience, there is a Surfaces’ class for you.
