Awesome People We A'Mused

I was so intimidated when I first signed up for a workshop. Cathie put me so at ease. I had never painted before and by the end of the three weeks I had a beautiful painting. I’m so proud of it that I hung it in my kitchen!

The workshops are the highlight of my week!

Sarah and her friends had a wonderful birthday celebration last week.  Rebecca was so wonderful and accommodating and helped the girls express their individual talents.  I could not have asked for a better experience.

My daughter loved her birthday party!

Thank You! Best. Night. Ever! A group of us got together for a much needed girls night out. It was long overdue. We came in stressed and frazzled and we left happy! Happy with our paintings and happy with the experience. You guys ROCK!

What a terrific way to spend an evening! We had a blast! Both Phillip and I have been talking about what fun it was. It was refreshing to let my brain “let go” of the chatter in our brains and do something completely different! Both pictures are already being proudly displayed. Thanks so much!

We had so much fun! Very easy and loads of fun. Thank you so much!


My workplace administrators treated us to a Paint and Play experience and I thought it was fantastic! Painting with coworkers turned friends is a good way to relax after a work day and it made me feel appreciated by my bosses. Everyone left with a smile, a memory, and a painting.
