Love Note to You! – Galentine’s Edition

Empowerment takes many forms in Barbi’s artworks and illustrations, as seen in series like Whimsical Ladies, Ladies in Red, and Cloud Ladies. Barbi brings you a reminder to celebrate yourself and indulge in play. In the midst of uplifting others, let’s not forget to uplift ourselves. Take this opportunity to share words of inspiration with yourself and carry a reminder always.

Unleash your creativity as you create a vibrant self-portrait against a colorful watercolor backdrop. Pick a meaningful quote, and together we’ll bring it to life in art. Dive into Barbi’s Whimsical One’s portrait style with a fun lesson, and don’t forget – there’s plenty of space for your personal flair! Let your creativity shine in this empowering workshop.
