Frequently Asked Questions
I had a lovely time painting with my group. We didn't get much guidance from the local artists so we all selected our own original designs and started painting! The artists were happy to help with details, providing more paint and general questions. We were even serenaded by one artist with a guitar! Afterwards we ate a wonderful (cheap!) meal at the restaurant and headed home. A lovely way to spend a morning getting creative!
