We will be gathering in my downtown Orlando, Florida art studio for three days of painting, drawing, friendship, slinging color and just having fun.


I will supply the fresh flowers, delicious food, one happy hour, paint and lots of inspiration and tons of demonstrations! We will be working from 10am until 4:30pm each day, on 24x30, 16x20 and 12x12 sized canvases.

I would love to have you join us! If you are out of the Central Florida area, look for a AirB&B College Park, Thornton Park or Winter Park, which are all charming and a short drive from McRae Art Studios. Cost is 495.00, which you can send via PayPal to or email me and I will send you an invoice. Feel free to email me for more information as well. Come, have fun! Let's paint and play!!
