Monarch Beach Resort Dana Point Paint Night 2/23/19

This has been such a blast meeting so many different people at the Monarch Beach Hotel, and today I met a bunch of writers! I don’t always believe in destiny, but sometimes people are just meant to find each other. This group of people at painting party last night was so creative and fun to talk to. We sipped chardonnay listened to Jazz music radio and really enjoyed honest conversations. I had one guest who was nervous to paint, since she went to another paint n sip and disliked it. Even she turned out with a joyful Starfish, which proves it folks anyone can enjoy painting!! Everyone was open, and I know how I always say people made the painting different, but this party they made it their own. It was such a Joy, and I’m so happy to announce Pop Up studios will continue to do parties here at Monarch Beach Resort in March and April!! So excited!

PS Thanks so all who came out last night, it was lovely and a special shout out to the birthday girl Heather!

Another extremely fun painting party at Monarch again this past weekend. We started by listening to some Jack Johnson radio and got right into chardonnay and painting.

It was such a great time, we will be there this weekend!!

Monarch Beach Resort "Midnight Blossoms" 1/21/19

Another really amazing painting party at Monarch Beach Resort. We had a small crowd today, but man was it awesome. It is so nice to be able to help everyone see their vision on a canvas. We started painting “ Midnight Blossoms” and I gave suggestions here and there about different colors or maybe to add stars. It is so fun to do that, because everyone gets really different paintings. All the ladies really enjoyed it, and I can’t wait to see them again when Pop Up Studios is back in February every Sat 4-6pm $50 and it includes one class of Chardonnay, if you would like to join the party please message: Anna Kadi akadi@monarchbeachresort.com
