Give yourself or a loved one the gift of one-on-one creative guidance and play with 5-star instruction in a beautiful bright beach-style studio fully equipped with all the art supplies and art books you could dream of!
Experiences give so much more than a physical gift. The receiving is special, the anticipation, the experience itself, the seeds that grow afterwards, and the memories that last a lifetime…
This Private Painting Lesson Package experience includes 7 hrs of lessons in any medium I offer, fully tailored to your individual needs, and includes all painting supplies and lesson notes.
You will gain so much more than skills and inspiration; your time with me will feel healing and uplifting as I guide you through releasing creative blocks that may have manifested into other areas of your life. I can also coach you towards building your own art practice, in all aspects from setting up your studio to managing your practice, marketing, and even how to teach art to others.

“Daina’s Solo Full Immersion Artist Retreat was the most wonderful experience, I got so much more out of the retreat than I ever expected. The four-day retreat was an absolute joy from beginning to end. Daina picked me up from the ferry and we got straight into artwork at her beautiful studio, where the supplies were endless and the best quality materials available. I created artwork in those four days that I had never expected to create, due to Daina’s expert teaching, support and one to one work. The retreat was tailored to what I wanted to get out of the retreat, Daina crafted the projects to my needs and was always there to assist and teach whilst allowing me to experiment and play with the materials, which was exciting and so much fun. Daina inspired me to unleashing my creativity and helped in making me realise my potential through different and varied projects, e.g. intuitive art, watercolour, collage, encaustic etc . I was guided through the projects and introduced to new ideas and techniques that I know I will use in my artwork going forward. This retreat is just perfect for the heart and soul. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone wanting to create art in beautiful surroundings with an incredible artist and come away with amazing pieces of art and skills and techniques that can be applied in the future.” – Bijal Patel, Vancouver
