Your Artista Story JJill
Co-ed En Cera Encaustic (hot wax) Painting Safari ~ October
Open to solo women, men, couples, mothers and sons, fathers
and daughters, brothers and sisters, and pairs of friends.

non-judgmental, creative environment would be great fun for
men, too. Fellow alum Sunni Chapman summed it up best by saying, "It's

including the men loved and encouraged by the women of Artista!
It's a revolutionary 'next step' for any woman with true feminist
ideals at heart."

Inspired by these uplifting stories, we'd like to share them
with readers on our website.
If you'd like to contribute your own success story for consideration,
just tell it in your own words. And don't worry, if we select

approval prior to posting on our website. All stories must
be received by June 15th. Please contact us for more details.
