“My wonderful painting of my Word of the Year! I can’t say enough about Caroline and her professionalism. She listened to me and was often intuitively hearing me before I even spoke the words. If you would like a wonderful way to help you follow your Word of the Year, and your DREAMS, reach out to her and see what amazing things she can do for you! Thank YOU, Caroline Karp.” – Miriam

“So exciting!  This was just so much fun. The way you teach freedom in art is my passion. I connected with how you described how you wanted us to be free to create what we wanted. ️”

—Kimberly Lakeland, FL


“Everything about this experience makes me smile. Time spent with my friends in a beautiful space. A perfectly paced yoga practice and meditation followed by mindful painting with the root chakra (The Muladhara) and a rose as inspiration, all to live music by Bryan Zink. Wine. Chocolate covered strawberries.”

—Christy Celeste Brandon, FL

“You’re on fire! You just set a great space and your freedom and creativity in painting inspires everyone. I will paint every workshop! Honored too!”—Dina of Zoe Lifestyle Yoga Tampa, Florida

“My feelings were like a roller coaster slipping backwards that had derailed leaving me hanging on for life. The sounds in my mind were those of a screaming child that awakens from sleep only to hear footsteps of an unknown intruder climbing stairs toward the bedroom. Then – we moved through a short series of asana and breath. Clear instructions were offered by Caroline with permission to let go of the inner critic. We painted. A creative Spirit seeped inside of me. The sense of community began to taste like the salt of the ocean. There was a smell of wild eucalyptus as if we were traveling the Pacific Coast Highway through Big Sur, California. In the moment I found myself meditating with sounds of the sea. I’ve been told that grief comes in waves.”   
Thank you for a wonderful experience. Looking forward to painting with you, Caroline.  —KJ. Lakeland, FL
