Paso Doble! (live private group parties)

a fun and gentle approach to watercolor, ink, or yarn...with friends

If you're intimidated by thoughts of painting on a blank white canvas or painting figures with anatomical detail, try this class. It's easy, it's fun, and absolutely no skill is required to dive in. Plus, it's a novel way to explore the poetic potential of watercolor -- or the comfort of crocheting with yarn, the beauty of drawing with ink -- and become the artist you've always wanted.


1- or 2-night PAINT'N POUR-STYLE party for weekend evenings, in my studio, or a private party setting (location determined when reservation is made). Participants can BYOB, but COST INCLUDES adult beverage and materials. ONCE YOUR RESERVATION IS MADE, YOU WILL RECEIVE A CANCELATION POLICY STATEMENT AND LOCATION INFORMATION.

Grab your pals for fun with friends (yes, that was a sly Big Bang reference). Minimum party size: 3 ($30/person/party of 3 people, $25/person/party of 4, $20/person/party of 5 or more people, $15 surcharge for parties outside my studio)

Voice-Guided Art Meditation (private party or personalized private audio file)

a creative relaxation technique that yields tangible results

Take time for you. Time to inhale permission, and...exhale the stress, demands, and clamor of the day. Any day. This could even make Mondays your favorite day of the week.


Participation via audio file session or private party. COST COVERS MATERIALS (4 items) for a session. Materials are given at the private party or SHIPPED for private audio file sessions.

After your first session (whether, via audio file or private party), you are welcome to make reservations for more audio file sessions. The cost per each additional audio file is SIGNIFICANTLY LESS if you still have supplies from your first/previous session. Audio files are personalized and not to be shared. At this time, new meditations are recorded seasonally.


ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR RESERVATION, YOU WILL RECEIVE A CANCELATION POLICY STATEMENT + a date and time confirmation for private party, or a file for personalized private audio.

This is like getting new art supplies and nearly an hour of relaxation for the cost of a fancy cup of tea or coffee at Starbucks. Heck yeah!
