Letter fRom The Artist
I want to encourage you to create in this course by removing as many obstacles as possible. You do not need to be “good at art” to show up here. Come as you are, with what you have—you are welcome here. This is an invitation for you to paint and draw and play — and not worry about being perfect. Hopefully, this course will be a chance for you to fall in love with the beauty of an expressively drawn line, and the flowing freedom of watercolor—of watching paint and water dance along your pages.

MOVEMENT AND SHINE! COME PAINT WITH SARAH SIMON
"Sarah makes painting so much fun. She's helped me to learn and embrace so many useful techniques. How to be less stiff, to loosen up, go with the flow. Sarah has such a wonderful pace to her teaching, and she's very easy to understand. Sarah is very positive and you can tell that she loves what she does, helping you on your way, until you can do it too."
- Ellie G.
"Sarah is the paint whisperer; peaceful, kind and it is just a pleasure to learn from her. Thank you Sarah, for sharing your talents and patience to teach hopeful creators like myself."
- Lorna H.
"For all of you who love Sarah’s painting style, you will fall in love with her class and teaching style even more. I had not picked up a brush for ages. Yet Sarah broke it down for me in such an approachable and fun way that I know painting will now forever stick with me. No more tricky mixing, no more watery paint or unexpected hard lines; Sarah will teach you all the techniques and details. And on top of all of that, Sarah's passion is contagious. She teaches with her heart and soon you'll want to start painting all of the time too."
- Mariska M.
"I have been painting for a long time with watercolors, and actually studied art in school, but I have learned SO much from Sarah - her classes are amazing! It's great for beginners and more advanced students too. Sarah is an excellent teacher. She loves what she does, and it shows."
- Janine R.
A SPECIAL LIVE PAINT ALONG EVENT WITH
SARAH SIMON X LET'S MAKE ART MATTER
We're excited to partner with Sarah Simon to let a special member of The Mint Gardeners know we are thinking about them and hope they feel loved.
LET'S MAKE ART MATTER RECIPIENT
Rachel is an advanced registered nurse practitioner who specializes in palliative care. She treats patients with life-threatening illnesses while simultaneously providing comfort, clarity, and peace to families on the brink of (potentially) losing a loved one. Rachel has a heart of gold and is a phenomenal mother to two bright kiddos. If she isn't exploring a new trail, admiring seasonal blooms, doing art with her daughter, or cooking with friends, she's likely helping her kindergartener host gatherings with friends and neighbors.
Rachel embodies generosity of spirit and lives each day with gratitude. As much as she gives to others, she often overlooks giving herself love and grace. Her love language is anything handmade from the heart, so we are very excited to create beautiful Ink and Wash Pansy Postcards for Rachel during Sarah's Live Let's Make Art Matter Workshop.
