Kid's are Fearless | Floral Workshop

Kid's are fearless. Yes they can get nervous, aren't sure of themselves, or may be a bit timid towards art, but at the end of the day, when you put a brush in one of their hands, they will paint.

Little Hoots - Paint Night Out! | July 2016

I was able to run two wonderful painting events at the Lacombe Memorial Centre, before I moved out East. I absolutely love planning and organizing these events. It’s a lot of work, but I have so much fun doing it! The minute a class is over, I’m already scheming for the next. I was overwhelmed with all of the support and attendance....
