LIFE DRAWING or WATERCOLOR
Spend a fun, creative afternoon with renowned local artist Calley O'Neill. Choose a table under the trees or the beach looking out to the ocean, and create your own masterpiece from the view you will take home as a living memory. There is no better time to bring forth the Artist Within. Being creative helps everything in life! Choose drawing life or watercolor from life.
CHAI & WATERCOLOR or WINE & WATERCOLOR
It's all the rage for a memorable date night, rainy day or family fun night. Calley O'Neill will come with all the supplies you will need, and the wine of your choice. Enjoy delicious local wine and cheese, loosen up, relax, laugh and learn to paint using watercolor. Create your own souvenir! It's a one-of-a-kind activity that brings your family closer together, brings out your creativity and reveals the artist within!
MANDALAS & MINT or MANDALAS & MERLOT
Spirits and relaxation are a great boost for uncertain artists! Have a glass of merlot (or your favorite wine) with local cheese, work outside on your lanai, and create a beautiful mandala with fine Prismacolor pencil glazing on black paper. Mandalas are hypnotically enjoyable, no-fail masterpieces that you can take home and cherish.
ZENTANGLE & RED ZINGER or ZENTANGLE & ZINFANDEL
Art as Meditation. Applying the basic tenets of Zentangle, you will create 3.5” squares of abstract rhythmic pattern and design in black pen on white cards. This is a powerful tool to concentrate, focus and clear your mind, anytime, anywhere. Benefit your life by igniting your imagination, drawing skills and mindful presence. Feel the zip of a delicious zinfandel as you and your family have fun drawing!

PEPPERMINT & PICASSO or PINOT & PICASSO
