Dear Createful community,

We have two pieces of super great news.

First, I am over-the-top-beside-myself-excited  to let you know that we have completely changed our class registration system—and our website.

You guys, it’s going to be SOOOO much easier for you to register for classes now then it was on Meetup.

Because Meetup was NOT easy—for you or for me.


You can now purchase and register for any Art Fix class or other Createful event in one place—on our fully updated and newly designed website.

Simply go to the Createful Studio website and scroll down to Art Fix Classes or Open Studio and then click on the button where you will find current class listings.  Or go to the Calendar. You can register right off the calendar too.

Find out what art projects we're working on each week in Art Fix.

Register for any or all classes (buy one class or a two-class or four-class pass each month).

Sign up for some creative self care and join us for an Open Studio or two in April.

All from our website!

You'll also find our classes listed on (and on their app) and our Createful Studio Facebook page if that's more convenient..

Okay, so that’s the first piece of good news. Do head over to the updated website and sign up for April classes now while seats are still open in our small studio.

(And by the way, THIS IS THE LAST WEEK (last week of March) is the last week to register for Art Fix classes on meetup.)

Now on to really exciting news.

Long-time supporter and member of Createful Studio, Karen Balsamico, is having a One Woman Art show, "Before and After" presented at the 1108 Gallery in San Rafael by Community Action Marin.

The Opening Reception is Friday, April 13th, from 5:00-8:00pm.

Much of Karen's work that will be on display came out of her work at Createful (the "After"—and you'll love what she did "Before"). I've had the privilege to preview some of the work and her show is going to be amazing!

Please join me at Karen's Opening Reception on Friday April 13th from 5:00-8:00pm, which is also the night of  San Rafael’s 2nd Friday Artwalk. We are sure to be inspired and to have a great time as we show our support for Karen.

One last note...

In an effort to streamline everything around here, including my work process—and to save you any unnecessary time, too— this E-newsletter is going to be short and sweet each month. So that’s it, folks. See our classes and events and learn all you need to know about the studio at  And always feel free to contact me with any questions.
