PACE was amazing and the VIP experience was especially nice because I always had a seat and ended up making new and lasting friendships because of the smaller, more intimate amount of folks in the VIP area.

Karen Mustoe, Previous VIP Attendee

Being surrounded by accomplished artists as well as eager beginners, all sharing experiences was a dream come true. Riding in comfortable buses to our paint-out locations, painting in beautiful parks in a relatively secure situation, sitting on the front row, watching demonstrations by some of my favorite artists: it was HEAVEN!
