I've designed several uniquely stylish and STRESS-FREE art projects that can be completed in just 2 or 3 hours. Combine color, creativity, and conversation in these casually intimate gatherings.You'll leave each workshop with new skills, and definitely some cool new stuff. All projects are created by you...I'll supply the motivation and encouragement, plus all the tools and supplies you'll need.

The images at right show the materials we provide for each workshop. Roll over the photos to see a sample of the type of finished product you'll create and take home from the workshop.
