Sunshower is an excellent host with a kind personality. She had everything we needed for our paintings and was thorough with her instructions. The short hike was easy and very manageable even for the least experienced hikers, and the views were definitely worth it.

What a fantastic experience! I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Sedona. It’s a unique and fun way to connect with the beauty of the area. It’s also very educational.

This was a magical experience - Definitely one my favorite memories from the trip! It felt like a once in a lifetime moment to paint the beautiful red rocks. If you’re looking for a something out of the box to do, you’ve found it!! I have no experience painting but Sunshower made it fun and I learned so much.
