TESTIMONIAL: “I have attended three Grape Canvas Parties events and was immediately put to ease by the owner Michelle’s incredible patience, creativity, and ability to make even the most unartistic person feel like they can create and successfully accomplish the project. The detailed final project was broken up into easy manageable steps in a fun, pressure and stress free atmosphere. I was most impressed with Michelle’s ability to not only lead the program and make every participant feel comfortable, but give suggestions to individualize their painting and find time for 1:1 assistance. I’ve been to other painting events where I felt rushed, the instructors were not able to pull the group together to keep everyone on the same page, and steps were missed. I am a bit of a perfectionist and have felt in the past that I was annoying the leaders by asking them to repeat instructions. Michelle has the patience of a saint and never stops being encouraging. At this point, I will only attend and host these art events with Grape Canvas Parties!” ~Sulekha Z.
