AToast2Artistry! If you are in Southern California, the Inland Empire you may want to check these ladies out..presented by, "All Things Pink Events, LLC".
Something I have always wanted to do! I already love getting crafty, but mix that with a glass of wine, some girlfriends, great food and a DJ!? All of those will get you in the right groove and mood!
I met one of the organizers of AToast2Artistry through Black Girls Run IE chapter and to know she was directly involved with this I was there! The particular event I went to was actually to celebrate her birthday and man I had a great time! Its all about the environment. Being in an environment where you feel comfortable and with the right crowd of ladies, just feels very renewing, refreshed and comfortable.
Below you will see some pics of how I began my piece of art...lol..When you see the final pic...think abstractly! =) I have heard a few different funny things of what people thought it was, including my 6 year old daughter. All that matters is, I KNOW what I WAS tryna paint! LOL! As long as I know what it was supposed to be...HEY! Thats all that matters to me!
Allow me to set the scene....there were about 30 women there, give or take a few...we all had our own easels, our own paint pallet, and it was on!
There was an instructor there, leading us step by step and looking at all of the different interpretations was simply amazing! Props to all the ladies that painted that evening!
