What an incredible experience! Nikki can make even a novice feel like an expert!!! I had an amazing time! Thanks Nikki- Jenn Noseworthy Jones
Had an amazing time! Great teacher who creates an amazing atmosphere from the good music to the fun laughs. I'm not an artsy person at all and I came away amazed at what I was able to create! I can't say enough good things about it all!- Nikki Leith
I have done several paint nights with Nikki now and I have enjoyed them all! She is very fun and personable which makes for a great atmosphere. I highly recommend checking it out and giving it a try!- Cassidy Marie
This was a great night! Nikki provided great instruction - both group and individual. She was friendly and warm and was patient with all of us. I was very surprised with the end result - since I'm not the most artistic - but with patients and a great teacher (Nikki) I was able to produce artwork that I'm proud of. I would recommend her events and will likely be doing another in the near future.- Heather Mari Ann
What a fun night. Nikki is an excellent instructor - making it a laid-back, fun and rather easy experience. Anyone really can be an artist. I'll do this again for sure.- Lisa Horner
So much fun- with the girls, but also a great "Date Night" activity!- Yvonne Clements
Thank you so much Nikki! Everyone had a great time. Thanks also for showing me how to fix my mistake 😬 It looks so much better now.- Terri MacLeod
Whimsy by Nikki is amazing! I have done 4 paintings now and I have more confidence then when I started. I have so much fun at these nights and Nikki is amazing and so helpful! I will continue doing these as I'm amazed at what I learn each and every night!- Shari Wright
Such a great night. Learned lots, had a blast, lots of laughs, created amazing paintings all while we sang to the music (great selection of songs by the way �) I Will be returning to do more paintings. Highly recommend to everyone!!!!- Melissa Papke-Jones
Love it! I have done 2 paintings now and love them both! Nikki is a great teacher and makes things so much fun!!- Melissa McCarter
This a great ladies night, we laughed and sang along to the music (when we weren't in a deep focus zone), we left surprised at our enormous amounts of hidden talent! My 11 year old daughter came too, and she loved it just as much- she was able to keep up and Nikki's instruction and guidance was so warm and genuine that it gave all of us superstar confidence! Can't wait to do more!!!- Miranda Morrison
My mum and I are already signing up for upcoming ones! It was a lot of fun and you get to come home with a great piece of art!- Shayla Davis
Fantastic fun experience. Great professional setup. Lots of space. Nikki is a great teacher, lots of patience and can fix any artistic error with verbal direction if you ask. Would participate again in a heart beat. Thanks Nikki for the chance to create. I put it aside when my boys were born, felt great to relive it (and then walk away from the mess). Cheers!- Melanie Cole
I attending an event tonight at East Mario's. I was EXTREMELY impressed with Nikki and her ability to make you feel so comfortable and welcome. She brought out your "inner artist" and it was said more than once that you should be proud of your creation. I would highly recommend attending an event. It was time and money well spent!- Becky MacVicar
So much fun. Even if you think you can't, you can.- Bonnie Greener Rowntree
Certainly a five star evening! Something everyone should try a great evening with friends and I never thought I could do a painting in 3 hours - very relaxed pace- Karen Elizabeth
I had a great time! I'm so proud of the work you taught me to create !!- Teresa Gilchrist
Nikki brings lots of fun, energy, and enthusiasm to her programs! Highly recommended!- Sandra J Howe
Just had my first Whimsy sip and paint experience and it was a lot of fun! Would highly recommend it with a couple of friends! Instructor Nikki was so patient, and assured a newbie like myself who cannot draw a stick figure, that she could paint! It was a great time and my painting turned out pretty good for a beginner!- Judi Cruikshank
This was such a great night and Nikki is the greatest teacher! Thanks so much for hosting this fundraiser for us!- Kim Kennedy
