We have a library, media center, gallery space and common area for you to enjoy as well. You will be surrounded by like minded, open hearted artists to share this creative experience with.

A recent testimonial by fellow Bloomer Kathy: 

If you can make this workshop I promise that it will change your life! I've participated in 2 of Lynn's online workshops and as exciting and energizing as THOSE are, her workshops must be off the charts. For those of you who started with decorative painting and/or enjoyed Onestroke painting, Lynn will show you how to let go and let the paint flow! This workshop will help you let go of "rules" and just have fun. You'll feel like a kid again and that's a beautiful thing! If health allowed I'd be there with bells on! SO, there are not enough wonderful words to describe the Whipple Experience - don't miss this opportunity! !!

Thank you dear Kathy!! xoxo
