Kauai Pinterest Parties at The Denim Patch!

Since we are getting 2015 started I was thinking what better way to kick this year off then setting some clear goals and intentions by creating vision boards for the first party on Saturday January 17th from 4 till 6 P.M. for $10.00 per person.

Most of the things needed such as scissors, poster board, glue and a few magazines will be supplied, but you can also bring your own and you may also want to start collecting the images, clippings and words that speak to you and relate to the goals you want to set in the new year before us. A frame to decorate and put your vision board in is not a bad idea either.

I am also going to offer up a short demo on Mind Mapping to help get your thoughts, goals and intentions organized.

The next party we will be getting a jump on Valentines day with love themed mixed media and altered art signs on January 24th from 4 till 6 P.M.for $20.00 or bring a friend for $35.00.

Chalkboard paint will be available if you want to go that route and will be doing a demo on how to make your own chalkboard paint.

I am asking folks to RSVP by way of email so that I can prepare and gather enough supplies for each session.

People who preregister rather than RSVP will get priority if the workshop fills up.

You can Pre-register workshop in person at the Denim Patch or down below.

    I LOVED this wishstick workshop with randy learnt some kool stuff & got 2 play with glue, paint & sparkly stuff ALSO got to meet a kool family…

  • Very Cool Lorelei! Thanks for the comment and lets get together and do it again soon!

  • I had a blast in Chongo’s workshop. He’s fun to create with and a great teacher!
    With just a few of his simple tips & techniques, you’ll be surprised at the art you can make:)

    • Thanks Catana so glad to hear you had a good time! What was the coolest thing about that workshop was the friendship that you and I have developed since then. Cool beans!

  • Chongolio is very outgoing and fun to talk to. He has a personality that I can see getting on with all ages.
    My boyfriend and I made wishsticks. I can honestly say that he really enjoyed it too! We both dug right in &, with Chongolio’s guidance, we’re both very happy with the meaning, creative effort and final artwork we made.
    We’re going back to Seattle tomorrow but we have a memory with a local and a piece of our own creation to take back with us. His artwork, which is very fun, is up at Java Kai in Kapaa. I love one with a turtle going out to surf and a little turtle catching a ride on his board.
    Have a lark and spend time with Chongolio!

    • The pleasure was all mine Julie! I had a fun time too and it was very nice to have met you and Alex. Thanks for the nice comment about the workshop and my art. I appreciate it!
