Learn Sign Painting


This new two-day workshop, in partnership with Above Ground Art Supplies, and One Shot, teaches the fundamentals of traditional sign painting. Participants will learn about best practices, sign painting tools, and have the opportunity to paint up to four styles of alphabet using both showcard tempera, as well as One Shot enamel paint.

This is an intermediate level workshop. All participants should come with a working knowledge of typography and hand-lettering fundamentals. Experience with type design, drafting, drawing, and painting is a bonus.

Space is very limited. Sign up today!

Ukulele


Last Sunday, I did something I never imagined I could ever do. I played - and sang - at my first-ever music recital at Lula Lounge. I’ve never played an instrument, and have not sang (in public) since grade eight choir.

I cannot describe the simultaneous terror and exhilaration of this moment. After three months of one-on-one ukulele lessons, I got up on stage. My hands were sweaty, heart was racing, and legs were shaking. But somehow, I did it!

This personal milestone would not have been possible without my talented ukulele instructor - and duet partner, Abby. Tremendous thanks to Michael and Annie at MJMS for their support and encouragement through this entire journey. You have given me the joy of music. And big love to my friends and family who came out to cheer me on, especially Rob for shooting this photo. BFF that stands for us!
