#25BeautifulThings Watercolor Workshop!

I had met Anne-Louise at Unique LA and instantly fell in love with her and her newest creation 25 Beautiful Things - A Fine Art Coloring Book.  Not only was she incredibly sweet and just oozed creativity but this book…this book instantly spoke to me. Anne-Louise created 25 Beautiful Things hoping to offer a doorway to the peace, freedom and joy that come with exercising your creativity. Her goal was to have the book be more about personal love of art and less of the intimidating respect for it. During our first workshop hosted with Anne-Louise and Speak Wines, we experienced first hand the delight in discovering what kind of beauty appeals most to us while playfully experimenting with color and picking our favorites from the 25 original fine art prints on large 11" x 17" heavyweight paper (plus a few bonus pages with rebellious words of encouragement).  Everyone was encouraged to sign, frame, and share their unique work of art with the world. Did I mention we had wine? Yes, there was wine. It was pretty much the most ideal Sunday afternoon! We hope you can join us for our next one!
