Hi, I’m Christie Hawkins, owner and founder of The Social Easel.

If you’ve spent any time with me inside The Social Easel, The Painting of the Month Club, or Christie’s Inner Tribe, there are a few things you already know about me. You know I LOVE art and painting. And I LOVE that God created me to share my passion for art with you. Bringing art to so many women through my online classes and memberships is a privilege. And creating communities of artists who support, encourage, and inspire each other is a joy!

I am beyond excited to bring that sense of community and sisterhood and turn the volume WAY UP during this LIVE event! I mean… we’re talking about two days creating, painting, bonding, and praying together.

Just like always, I’ll guide you through this adventure in art step by step. The difference? This time, we’ll be together IN REAL LIFE! I cannot wait to love on all of you in person. To teach you, pray with you, laugh with you, and cheer you on!

I’ve been waiting for this event for a long time. And I know so many of you have, too! It’s going to be better than I even dreamed it could be.

I can’t wait to see you and share one of my favorite places with you in October!
