Have you ever wanted to try your hand at portrait painting? I'll set you up with all the guidance and supplies you need to take home a canvas of your significant other or friend. I've taught absolute beginners and I'll show you ways of digging in without the intimidation factor—the goal is to have a blast and create something that doesn't have to be realistic, but will definitely be cool and meaningful. (Wine and cheese will ensure that you don't alienate said loved-one in the process!)

Good art-making karma!
I'm a New Yorker. I'm an artist. I'm a graphic designer/writer/teacher and mom to a fabulous kid. I've taught art on a college level and been represented by a few Manhattan galleries. I've also organized several international art projects. My life is full of weird and wonderful coincidences that pop up frequently and unexpectedly. I dream profusely and might give you Reiki if you ask nicely. My family roots are in New York City. I've lived here for the last 15 years...and I frequently find myself secretly singing that old "I Love New York" commercial. Loudly. I'm an undercover soccer player and avid kayaker who's trying to get a book published. NYC is the most vibrant, accommodating place to live in the world and I love to share the off-the-beaten-track parts with adventurous people. Full profile
