Prior Workshop Testimonials

“Lisa exuded serenity and peace. I will take this workshop again and again. Just a fantastic experience.” Michele B.

“Thank you so much for a wonderful day. I realized I need to do this more often!  [I would tell my friends to]  “do it! Don’t think about it! Just do it!” Zee L.

“You for sure don’t need any art talent at all and not having ever picked up a paintbrush. So beautiful, safe, inspiring, relaxing and comfortable.” Michele S.

“This was my first art class. It was great to connect with people in-person again. I loved what the women [at this workshop] shared about their lives and their art.” Katie G.
