San Francisco / Bay Area Paint Dancing - PaintDancing.com Message Board › Looking forward to seeing you with us this Saturday, 7-9pm, for Paint Dancing!
San Francisco, CA
Hello all PaintDancers!~
I hope you can join us for the next evening of PaintDancing, Saturday, September 29th, from 7-9pm - more details below! We'll dedicate our evening to the practice of Generosity: if you choose, you may "pay it forward" by paying for another person's fee. I'll pay for the first person who arrives. As always, we'll have a wonderful line-up of music, 22 juicy pre-mixed colors, and as much paper as you need, plus two huge shared murals! And thank you to Lori Saltzman for the inspiration for this theme.
Looking forward to dancing and painting with you! (for more on the theme of Generosity, watch this great TED lecture by Nipun Mehta: http://www.youtube.co....
If you plan to attend, please rsvp. 2 Free spaces for cleaning of brushes afterwards, 1/2 hr max.
