What we’ll do

When you arrive at my house, you’ll find yourself in a creative sanctuary free from expectations and judgment — on the bank of a wash and cholla garden cradled by mountain views and the open desert sky.

What else you should know

Please arrive at my house 10-15 minutes before start time so you can settle into the space. Bring a smock or wear clothes you won't mind potentially getting a little paint on.

What I’ll provide

Equipment

Optional supplies: Maps, postcards, and other ephemera you’ve gathered on your trip so far. Favorite pens and pencils.

Where you'll be

We'll conduct our workshop at my house in central Joshua Tree, a solar-powered hidden gem. We'll create our journals at my large farmhouse kitchen table, with the option to work outside on my shaded porch or backyard patio if it's not too hot or windy.

Things to keep in mind

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

More tips
