Pop Up Studios was super excited to paint the Eiffel tower for Shelby's birthday!!! It was so wonderful we even had a Paris themed playlist made by the host of the party Natalie. It made everyone want to travel! We started painting, "Paris in Love" and all the girls, were saying how therapeutic it was. Sometimes painting is just necessary, even Shelby's dog Prim was ready to paint!

We had lots of snacks and wine, and at the end some pretty spectacular paintings. This was just such a lovely birthday party!

It was so much fun making these sweaters they all turned out so very different, but all individually spectacular!! The holidays are coming, what better time can you have then creating something festive to wear during the holiday season!

Mia & Faye's Party "Aloha Pineapple" 6/29/16

It was a perfect day for Ohana (family) when Pop Up Studios went to paint in Santa Ana with an amazing mother and daughter. The daughter Faye who is 6 years old, was quite the little Hawaiian, so we had to do a new painting just for her we made called, "Aloha Pineapple." Not only did we paint a pineapple by Mia & Faye had smoothies out of Tiki mugs, which could not have been any.... "COOLer." 

It was very warm outside but we were right next to the pool and able to dip our feel in while our paintings were drying. We had sooo much fun painting with our special helper brushes that Faye named "Blueberry, Tiny, and baby!" We had such a fun time poolside and can't wait until the next time when we paint with this wonderful pair of artists again!

Jennifer's Father's Day Party "Happy Ocean/Sunset at Dana Point" 6/19/16

So stoked to be a part of Jennifer's family celebration for Father's Day! It was so wonderful be able to teach everyone... two paintings at once. Mind you this doesn't always happen, but hey it's Father's Day and I could dig it, so everyone got exactly what they wanted!  We painted "Happy Ocean" and "Sunset at Dana Point"....anyone sensing a beach theme?? I feel like it's beginning to feel a lot like summer! We had the whole family painting and man did everyone do amazing. Even my new favorite 5yr old Collin was following instructions like a pro. This family was super creative! Pop Up Studios had such a wonderful time teaching this loving family on Father's Day.

We listened to Jack Johnson had coffee and donuts, and enjoyed the fresh beach air coming in through the garage. It was so relaxing, and I can't wait to be there again to have more good times with this fun bunch!

Also a BIG Thank you to Lien for hosting another party in her spacious backyard!

 It was one heck of a good time teaching these ladies to paint "Sunset at Dana Point" I couldn't have been happier to take them through it step by step. We got paint on some clothes along the way, but thankfully it was caught in the nick of time. The moral of this story is just enjoy yourself, because in the end we had some amazingly gorgeous beach scenes and a bunch of smiling teachers! It was a great way to kick off the start of their summer and the end of the year. I can't wait to come back to Lien's for more fun and painting!

We could not only see our awesome art work, but it also turned out pretty gorgeous.  All the girls did very beautiful versions of flowers some different than others. Man oh Man though was there a lot of love and family at this table!
