Kim is amazing at this. She encourages and guides so well. This was my first home painting party and I would highly recommend it over the storefront places. Get your best pals together, have some wine, and enjoy a relaxed evening at home! Would also be fun for a baby shower!!
Thank you so much for the art class! Your step-by-step approach helped bring out the artist in me - which I didn’t know was there! Looking forward to your next paint & sip party. Thanks again! Lisa
