Who Is This Class For?

This class is designed for people who love magical portraits, nature, and learning new skills. It is not as easy as a Paint-by-Number or Paint-n-Sip class, but never fear, I do provide options for people at all skill levels. With a little mindfulness, it is very doable.

My goal is to be inclusive and have fun,
but also to encourage creativity, originality, and growth.

If this sounds like you, I hope you will join me!

Creatively Yours, Eris
