Crafting in Costa Rica with the Sisterhood of the Traveling Paints

I’m so thrilled to share the news that I am going to be teaching in Costa Rica next year with six of my artsy sisters… Annette Green, Candy Colwell, Cheryl Grigsby, Hels Sheridan, Linda Ledbetter, Yvonne Blair.  We’ve dubbed ourselves the Sisterhood of the Traveling Paints and to say we are really excited to take this journey with Jim West of Craftours would be quite an understatement!  Each one of us will teach a unique class created solely for the Costa Rica trip.

Our trip takes place September 25 ~ October 1, 2016.  We will all travel together from Ft. Lauderdale to Costa Rica. This is sure to be an amazing trip with a combination of crafting and tourism!  Our trip includes seven different projects and workshops, mixed media exhibits by all the instructors, painting, photography, lectures, sightseeing, special dinners and a lot more.

For a limited time, airfare is included.
