Small Business Saturday is a national event sponsored by American Express which celebrates small businesses everywhere! This year, we wanted to do more than just open our doors to shoppers, but also welcome in the larger community of small business owners in the LA area and let them sell their goods in our store. We will have about 15 vendors total, selling a wide variety of items from jewelry, stationery, and apparel to coffee and baked goods. Perfect for holiday shopping! We are located in historic Old Town Monrovia, surrounded by other small business shops and restaurants. We’re looking forward to a wonderful day of festive fun, treats, shopping, and community!

Join us for a celebration of watercolor! Jenna Rainey, the artist and author of Everyday Watercolor, will be teaching two beginner floral watercolor workshops. Her three hour course is a perfect fit for beginning watercolor artists or for those looking to find a different approach to their skill! Jenna will start off with going through quality materials and which brushes and supplies she prefers to use. She’ll then cover tips and techniques for brush strokes, creating basic shapes, color theory and blending. Once you’ve gone through this material, you will incorporate how you’ve structured basic shapes into florals! Jenna will go over which brushes to use in order to form leaves, berries, peonies and more! Materials provided.
Workshop #1: 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Workshop #2: 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
After her workshops, there will be a book signing party where you can purchase her new book and have it signed by Jenna! There will be treats and refreshments and lots of fun.
Book Signing Party: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
