FolkArt One Stroke
FolkArt One Stroke

One Stroke

In the late 1980s, Donna Dewberry sat at her kitchen table seeking a creative outlet and a way to relax. She pursued painting with a passion, transforming her hobby into the world's most successful and popular learn-to-paint program, One Stroke™. Donna's goal was to remove intimidation, enabling anyone with a desire to paint to succeed. She broke down classic brush strokes into simple steps that are then recombined in an infinite number of ways to create lush flowers and landscapes. Donna connected with Plaid's artist quality FolkArt paint, enhancing the concept with unique painting tools, superior brushes and splendid books. Donna Dewberry's One Stroke continues to build confidence in artists of all skill levels, provide the thrill of creativity and the ability to create stunning art, all just One Stroke at a time.
