True Colors Queer Women's Meetup Monterey Bay

Monterey, CA

True Colors Queer Women's Meetup Monterey Bay

Welcome! This group is for all queer women. If you self-identify as a queer woman, this group is for you :) 🏳️‍🌈 

As the Admin and Organizer of this group, one of my primary objectives is to create well-defined boundaries so that the members of this community feel safe. With this in mind, you are welcome to become a member of True Colors if you are a lesbian, bi female, or an MTF trans lesbian. 

Established mid-October of 2020, this social club offers adult (18+ years of age) women, of all colors, single & partnered, an opportunity to create new and meaningful friendships and participate in common interest activities in the Monterey Bay Area.

Activities, adventures, and events will include but are not limited to hiking, biking, walking, running, kayaking, ropes courses, ziplining, backpacking, camping, frisbee in the park, book clubs, photography, coffee and tea, breaking bread, pub nights, farmer's market meetups, dancing, escape rooms, board and dice games, cards, tours, concerts, movies, parties, BBQs, trips, travel, whitewater rafting/tubing, skiing/snowboarding. The sky is the limit!

On average we offer about five meetups each month, usually one meetup per weekend, and then an occasional meetup on a weeknight. Often our weekend meetups are short local hikes or coffee & pastry get-togethers although occasionally we turn it up a notch and run a bigger, less local meetup such as whale watching, kayaking, or an e-bike ride. Our weeknight events have been brewery meetups so far, while we do have a full moon hike coming up in July and we'll add monthly Twilight Cycling at Laguna Seca when they get up and running again. 

We primarily hold our meetups in the greater Monterey Bay (Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Marina, Seaside, Salinas, Santa Cruz). We've talked about putting together trips to Guerneville and the Mendocino area this coming summer or fall. 

Everyone will be given a warm welcome. An ethos/culture of mutual respect, courtesy, warmth, dignity, 'positivity', and inclusivity for all members is expected. We endeavor to create an environment where members can feel confident, comfortable, and happy being their true selves. Our group vibe is warm, friendly, welcoming, inclusive, casual, and social. 

Feel free to suggest any ideas you have for events; your ideas are always welcome ;) After coming to a few events, you will likely also have the opportunity to become an Event Organizer and host events, if you wish. 

This Club is non-commercial/non-profit. Membership is free.

Please add a profile photo before applying to join our group. 

Note: Unless otherwise stated, True Color events are for queer adult women only. Just to be super clear, no pets, kids, or allies are invited to attend unless specified for a one-off event. If specified, the event will clearly state "+ dogs" or "allies welcome" in the event title or near the top of the post.

Atelier Virtuel Online Painting & Drawing

San Geronimo, CA

Atelier Virtuel Online Painting & Drawing

Welcome to Atelier Virtuel, where we are fusing fine art modeling and photography to create tasteful, crystal-clear live sessions that tell stories and inspire art of all kinds. Two professionals, two views, Zooming in stereo.


Who We Are

We want you to feel right in the studio from the comfort of your own space, which is why we are excited to introduce Will Toft, a forever photographer who brings his brilliance into focus for the first time on Zoom for virtual drawing. A full-time professional since 2017, Will shares decades of visual acumen with the Atelier, offering you an experience like no other online drawing session in the world by using photographic resources and techniques to make our guests feel as though they are right on set.

At the Atelier we are also very proud to feature lifelong dancer and professional fine art model, Leigh Kidwell, formerly trained in classical ballet and now loving life celebrating the spirit of swing dance throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Like poetry in motion, Leigh strikes intensely energetic poses celebrating movement and emotion in time and space. She dances between the natural and refined, composing stories that delight and inspire artists from all over the world!


Streaming in full HD from two DSLR cameras, with thoughtfully composed scenes using studio lighting, the Atelier provides visually creative clarity as close as you can get to an in-person experience, possibly better!

Art, Creativity and Process Group Every Wednesday 9:30-11am

San Francisco, CA

Art, Creativity and Process Group  Every Wednesday 9:30-11am

Let's connect and make art together as a weekly practice. We will set aside 1.5 hours every week to explore ourselves within a project and then share what we created and experienced. Prompts provided, but you are always welcome to free-form create in community with us, if you have something in mind for that particular week. Let's make some time and space for our artistic, poetic way of seeing the world. All are welcome.

Facilitators:

Courtney has always found comfort by expressing herself through art. Growing up, dancing and drawing was her way to connect with herself and to the outside world. She graduated with a Bachelors in Art, specializing in oil painting and digital photography which she used to explore difficult emotions and conflict in relationships. She is currently a graduate student at the Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology. She is an MFT Trainee supervised by James Bosch LMFT #86491

Halie has been fascinated by exploring herself through her artistic expression. Her favorite mediums are oil painting, dance, sewing, collage, and poetry. She finds through her creative process she tends to discover parallels within how she is integrating her current situations in life. Exploring her relationship with her artistic expression has transformed how she meets the world. Halie is a graduate student in the Integral Counseling program at California Institute of Integral Studies. Supervised Gieve Patel, LMFT #47196

Tatum is a psychology graduate student at the California Institute of Integral Studies. Tatum is also a painter who loves the process of painting itself. There seems to be an internal dialogue that unfolds while making art, bringing more insight and clarity to the subject matter. For her, the skill level of the end-product doesn't matter, it's all about the feeling of congruency between inner worlds and outer worlds that takes shape. She is supervised by Elizabeth Hoke LMFT #103781

Let The Good Times Roll

Vista, CA

Let The Good Times Roll

We're all about good vibes and great times with better people. This all started in our dimly lit garages and parking lots after hours with warm whiskeys and static tunes. A few friends and family, good laughs, and beers. 

We like to change things up and keep it fresh. Never put baby in a corner. Theres far to much to explore. Wether we get down on a wine & paint night, get together to ride & dirt bike, or plan someones little monster a birthday, were just tryin to get back to the good old days of bare foot, babes and barbeques and bring community back to the neighborhood. Locals for locals. No instagram required.

We used to know each other, let our children run wild in the streets long as the sun was out and called our friends family. We shared when we had too much, asked when we needed a hand, and supported our neighborhoods.

We didn't keep up with the times we just lived and let live and let the good times roll. We've been missing the vibes lately and we think you might be missing it too. In studios, workshops and our friends garage, were all doin what we do. Creating, collaborating and cultivating OUR tomorrow. Lets get back to the drawing board. Together this time. Worlds' been rough and times are tough and there's never been a better time for a 'block party'. We're building an army of those who were raised wild, lost in the right direction.
