Hey Everyone! Happy Friday!
I am so excited to announce that I just launched my FIRST online watercolor workshop. You all have been asking so I delivered 🙂 . Skillshare, an online workshop platform, reached out to me about a month ago and guided me through the whole process. Every week I would have a review and receive useful pointers. I have to say Skillshare, especially Mary and Allan have been great to work with 🙂
My first online workshop, can you believe it?!! Can you tell I am excited?!! Haha! This first video will be the first of a series called Desert Botanical and the first video will focus on painting succulents! I will go over materials, show you color swatching, stroke practice, etc!
To access the class and enroll use this link http://skl.sh/29YZs97
For the launch I am giving the FIRST 25 people FREE ENROLLMENT! Click here to redeem and be 1 of the 25!
The video was a labor of love and I am so excited to share it with you all 🙂

There is so much beauty in the world but we all haven’t had the time/opportunity/motivation to tap into it. You would be surprised but each person possesses a certain type of creativity. I consider myself a visual artist. My creativity is stimulated by photos and what I see in front of me. Some people are stimulated by what they read, write, cook, solve, etc. I love working with my hands but it is different than a sculptor loving to work with their hands. When people approach me and say, “I do not have a creative bone in my body,” I never believe them just because I feel like everyone has some type of creativity, but they are either not recognizing it as being creative or not channeling it.With my workshops I really want to help people channel a creative outlet. You may not be a painter but I feel that if you experiment with one outlet it has the potential to lead you to your true passion. My workshops aren’t only about teaching you skills but they are also a way for you to tap into your creativity. I like my workshops to be more mindful than technical. I like people to work with an open mind and put perfectionism to the side.
My next workshop is at The Simple Farm. This is the perfect environment to stimulate the mind and senses. They have beautiful gardens full of flowers, herbs, vegetables, etc. It is lush with greenery and takes you outside the Arizona desert landscape and into a sort of wonderland. Here is what I am striving for in the workshop:
Stimulation of the senses in this lush environment
Learn tips and tricks in painting wildflowers
Explore the imagination and not be concerned with the idea of perfection
Create a beautiful floral piece inspired by the gardens
To continue your search of beauty, I am providing you with a few art materials to take home
Join me on The Simple Farm May 22nd to channel your creative outlet!
Beverages and Muffins will be served! Register here
Join in on the whole “The Create Series” and sign up for The Florette’s Intro to Foraged Floral Design on May 15th and Lifecreated’s Intro to Photography with Food on May 29th here !
Thank you for visiting and I look forward to seeing you at the Farm! If you want to be informed of my upcoming workshops email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you on my mailing list for workshops!
Hey everyone! I have been waiting so long for this moment!! I can not wait to show you images from the watercolor workshop I held at Webster Farm in Gilbert, AZ. The lovely Sara Bishop photographed the event. The biscuits were delicious from Rise Biscuit Co. and Allison from Teaspressa makes a mean tea! Also the gift was a collab between me and my fav Madalyn Nault Accessories 🙂
I went through a faze for a while where I wanted to be an art teacher but I quickly decided otherwise. The idea of teaching never left my mind but I knew I wanted to be in charge of the curriculum. It never crossed my mind that I would be where I am today. I knew about different workshops in the community but I never thought of them as an avenue I would be taking, until now. I had a moment I just can’t explain on this sunny day. Being able to teach people about something you love and for your students to be excited about it is priceless. I felt so at home with this experience. I was nervous at first when I had to talk about myself but after that it was smooth sailing. I am happy to say that I have a few more in the works and I just want it to continue.
I think the thing I enjoy most about holding a workshop is bringing a community together through art. Art is so valuable ( i am obviously completely biased;) ) and it does so much for people as an outlet.
Anyways, I hope you enjoy the photos and if you want to see when the next ones are coming up follow me on instagram @pinkpuddlestudio or shoot me an email email@example.com
* Majority of these photos are by Sara Bishop but there is a mix in of student photos and some photos from Allison of Teaspressa
