BYOB Painting Class with Nicole Lamb at L & A Healing Studio. We live in a fast paced world, sometimes we forget about "me time'. Take sometime to appreciate a little serenity. Your body and mind will thank you! I will help you create a portrait of your furry little friend on canvas.

    Was a super fun, laid back, and nice stress relief after a bad week at work. Nicole is really fun and awesome. Plus I got to talk about my cat the entire class, because everyone was talking about their love of their pet the entire class.

    Well, I'm no Picasso, BUT I will be enroute to Hobby Lobby first thing in the morning to frame my masterpiece! I love my sweet dog Dalia, and with the assistance of the fabulous instructor- I now have a portrait that truly captures her personality!! Absolutely loved this class. Laid back atmosphere, informative instructor, and left with a frame worthy portrait- painted all while sippin' on an adult beverage.

    Such a helpful teacher. My boyfriend and I are both terrible artists, but she made sure that we left with portraits that we were proud of!

    Painting your pet can be nerve wracking if you aren't artistic or familiar to painting. Nicole makes you feel at ease and encourages you along as you paint.

    Great class! Attended alone and the instructor made me feel really comfortable. Good instruction and helpful tips. My finished painting literally looked JUST like my dog, thanks to the lesson. Will take classes at this shop again.
