What we're about

I am an artist/entrepreneur. Out of my place of business The American Dream Cafe, which is a cafe, convenience store, I decided to include art and never forget that all of me is a thirsty artist that would never forfeit her art. For that I decided to invite you here to paint together. The space is good enough for 5 to 6 members at a time. Are you willing to discover the artist within you? Do you want to paint and experience a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Do you want to see how color and expression can heal? Then this is the venue for you. I have in mind collaboration and what I mean by that is creating a scenario and a discussion where we take the initiative to interpret and translate into paintings and sketches.

Sessions are 2 hours. 40.00. a session. (no instruction) 55.00 with instruction.( includes an initial kit of paint/brushes/canvas).

!0% discount for 4 sessions. 25% discount for 8 sessions and more.

What you get out of the sessions:

Get to create a body of work ( will exhibit at pop up art shows in different venues.)

Post your work on my Website and get to keep 80% of the sale.

Volunteer models ( no nudity) models will be for posing for portrait etc. (optional)
