Come join our second Mother and Daughter in-person painting experience. It will be a creative time for all. It will be hysterical as well.

Join Cinnamon Cooney, The Art Sherpa, and Featured Guest, Ginger Cook, in the lovely Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. We will be gathering in small groups where you will be up close and personal, painting and learning with Cinnamon and Ginger. Acrylic and watercolor lessons will be created specially for this event, and you will be provided with everything you need to paint along and learn new skills. You only need to bring your creativity and smile!

Each Day begins with Cinnamon and Ginger joining everyone for a Full Breakfast buffet in the River Room. From the moment you enter the restaurant, you can see that the atmosphere in The River Room is unpretentious, approachable, gracious, and fun. After your wonderful social start to the day, you will enjoy a morning painting session designed just for you by The Art Sherpa and Ginger Cook. Painting classes will be in watercolors and acrylics, all materials provided. The guests will be divided into two groups, providing small, intimate class sizes. Classrooms will have sound and screen augmentation so you can easily see every brush stroke from every spot. The Art Sherpa and Ginger Cook will also be moving around the class to give you one on one help. You will have ample snacks and beverages during the painting sessions. Lunch will be provided buffet style in our private banquet room. You may also enjoy eating in the appointed outdoor decks with stunning views of the property.

You may get to meet John Cooney, also known as Stunt Hands, and also Jon Little, known as The Tec bear. Each day will be filled with all the Like You Do and YES and YES you could ever want. You will also have a little creative free time to finish your projects. Once our very full days of being creative are done, we will finish with a dinner buffet and gathering in the Payette Room. Once again being joined by The Art Sherpa and Ginger Cook.
