Perfect! Fun and Inspiring. Nice people and nice energy.

It was really lovely to have a quiet, unstructured space to come and draw with other people. There was coffee, tea, cocoa and water for us. The lack of a structured agenda for was really refreshing. Julie is there as a knowledgeable and attentive resource when needed and helped me solve a perspective problem I have been struggling with for quite a while. Thank you Julie!!!
