Mondays with Merritt

This workshop is on hold until the winter season because I am out doing henna at festivals and parties for the summer. 
I encourage you all to express yourself through any medium of your choice, painting, music, doodling, dance, whatever...
as Beverly from Story Salon says,

"let your freak flag fly!"
See ya when the dust settles...
Much love, 
Merritt and Jack the Dove


Life can be stressful. Focusing one's awareness on the present moment is an effective tool in combating stress. Take the time to not worry about tomorrow or re-thinking things you can't change. Be here now. This workshop is here to give you a comfortable relaxing place and activities to do just that.


This workshop does not require any experience or artistic ability. We will be exploring the creative process of making art to enhance emotional well-being and reduce stress. There are no mistakes, no judgement, no preconceived notions of the end product, it's all about the process... and having fun doing it :)


This is a FREE workshop with limited seats to ensure social distancing. Must provide proof of vaccination or neg test results.

Please call of text Merritt at 818 468-6005

Free snacks, bottled water, and shared art supplies :)

Studies show that painting may

  • increase ability to regulate emotions

  • lowering stress levels and anxiety

  • ease depression
