Are you looking for a couple of hours of fun?
To get messy and play with yummy art supplies? 
Be part of a community that encourages and inspires one another?

Look no further! Create + Play is not your typical step-by-step zoom class, but more of an experience. 

If you like my Facebook or Instagram Lives, you will love these sessions as they are much more interactive.

Each session is on Zoom and recorded (whether you turn on your camera or not!) 

The next best thing to being together in person is to be Live online with each other.

Join me for a couple of hours to play and let go as we get messy with inks! I will show you acrylic inks and liquid watercolors – you can do the lessons with just one type or both. You may be surprised to see all the possibilities with these incredible paints. We’ll create a few pieces together in this Zoom class; abstract, floral-inspired, and monochromatic.
