Pink Easel

Pink Easel is a place where people get together to make some art, make a mess, and make some friends!

Pink Easel offers open-ended workshops on watercolor and acrylic. Students are free to paint and create to their heart's content and are encouraged to create from their imaginations and ideas. Grab your best friend and meet some new ones while you create one of a kind art pieces at Pink Easel. You will be able to spot the Pink Easel meeting point by, of course, the pink easels.

Creative Check-In, Making and Conquering Goals

Pink Easel offers more than art classes, it's also a place where the creative minded get together to discuss their hustle and goals for their future and current projects. If you're into networking, brainstorming, and looking to find people on the same creative wavelength, join us for a session. We'll discuss, plan, and set a goal for attendees, and we'll work to keep each other accountable. The goal of this workshop is to help attendees turn their big projects into small bite size steps.

Pink Easel wants to help you in your creative process, so we'll provide some organizational tools to help plan out your next steps to achieving your goal. This workshop meets monthly and newcomers are welcome at any time. 

We're also excited to announce that Passion Planner will be supplying us with planners to finish off this year creatively organized.
