Mary Ann Oliver has enjoyed making art all of her life. She was born in Hollywood and moved to Arroyo Grande in 2002 from Ventura County. She studied art in college and has been creating ever since. She devotes many hours weekly to painting in oils and acrylics with a group of local artists where style, technique, and creativity are explored. Her art is in homes, both here, and in Southern California and she has participated in many art shows and festivals. She and her husband grow Pinot Noir grapes and Mary Ann’s artwork is included on their wine labels. “I just love painting…it’s like meditation…you can get lost in it. I think that everyone has creativity inside…we just need to let it out! I am so inspired by our beautiful Central Coast. I love to paint it along with many other subjects, using color and brush strokes to bring movement to my paintings. Come paint with me… let’s have fun and get our creativity on!”

Teaching Style: My style is colorful and fun. I teach a painting step by step so it’s easy to follow and participants go home with a painting that they will be happy with. I give students “artistic license” to change the colors or composition to suit their sensibilities. In my class you’ll get a bit of art education, as well…color mixing, composition, and how paintings are created from blocking in colors to the finished piece. My classes are appropriate for all levels. If you are a beginner, you’ll be surprised at what you can create!
Whether you are an aspiring artist or just looking to explore your creative side, Art Bar will help you create a painting that is uniquely yours.

The $40 fee includes a canvas that you will take home, paints to use during the workshop, instruction from our resident artist and a glass of wine.

The Station is San Luis Obispo’s oldest gas station re-imagined into a mixed use space for work, events, and a curated wine & goods shop. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages available throughout the two hour workshop. Guests must be 21 and over to attend this session.

Due to limited seating and high demand of workshop tickets, we ask that you give us 48 hours notice if you need to cancel.
