Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

Join me as we create a Unicorn girl jar! We will be using an old jar or Ball jar to create our own beautiful holder for makeup brushes, colored pencils, art brushes or whatever use you can think to put in your jar.

This project will be so fun to keep the creative juices flowing for the summer! And the jars are functional too.......!
