--Albert Einstein

Look for my upcoming summer classes for kids at

I hold a monthly "Paint pARTy" at my north Austin studio....and twice monthly at Cafe Monet. It's a laid back social event for any one who wants to get their creativity on and hang out with other artistic types.

Whether you've never picked up a brush or you paint all the time, you'll learn something new and impress your friends with your paintings. Most of all, you'll have a great time!

BYO drinks and snacks, and I'll provide the art supplies and monthly follow-along-projects. Check here on my blog, or at for event hours.

Cost: $35, pre-pay to reserve your seat.

To be added to my "Paint pARTy" E-Vite List, send me an email.

"Monet & Merlot" at Cafe Monet

Never painted? No problem!
Come get your creativity on!

Local artist, S'zanne, will make you feel
like you were "born to paint"
with our Monet & Merlot classes.

As it's Dog Appreciation and
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month
we are proud to kick off our Monet & Merlot series
focusing on our canine companions:

Bring a photo of your dog,
and you'll paint your "best friend" in two hours on canvas.
No bones about it!
(Don't have a dog? We'll have extra images...or,
bring a photo of your bird, cat, etc.)

BYO drinks, snacks and friends-- and we'll provide the art supplies
and instruction so you can have tons o' fun!
