Peto Presents: Wild and Free Painting with Elissa Arbeitman

1/26/2024 at 6:00 PM ET

Join our growing community of painters for a much-needed respite where you can reduce stress and connect to the creative community you’ve been looking for. 

Wild and Free Painting is an indulgent and nourishing Process Painting Art Studio for self-care and personal growth.  We focus on the act of painting itself and your experience while painting rather than the final art product.  We celebrate your creativity in all of its authentic form and return to the idea that creative expression can serve as a tool to heal, connect, de-stress, reclaim and discover. 

Experiencing this process helps people feel a deeper connection within themselves and in turn feel more satisfied and grounded. 

Absolutely no prior art experience is necessary to enjoy the benefits of this process. 
Supplies included
