Join us at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium for a private painting class for Heal the Bay members only!


Lórien Eck, fine artist and educator, will facilitate an experiential creative workshop.  Participants will be inspired to create an original and personal painting on reclaimed wood to capture the essence of their love for the ocean. Beginners/All levels are welcome! 


Participants are recommended to:

-Wear clothes that are comfortable and that are OK with a splash of paint!

-Bring a personal journal/sketchbook and favorite pen/pencil (*optional)

This class is for adults only so leave the kids at home please!


WALKING DIRECTIONS: The Santa Monica Pier Aquarium is located directly underneath the Santa Monica Pier. Head down the ramp from Ocean Ave and double-back past the Carousel Building. Follow the sign to your left toward the Aquarium downstairs. While there are lots of parking options in Downtown Santa Monica, we suggest using a ride-share or taking the newly extended Expo Line.
