What you'll learn
Treat your mother and yourself to a fun and stress-free virtual painting party! In this 1.5-hour virtual course, an expert artist from Italy will guide you through the creation of a fun and creative painting. Together you will create one painting made of two canvases: each partner will paint on an individual canvas that will be the matching half to their partner's painting. Solo participants are also welcome to paint on one canvas! You can use your own supplies if you have them; otherwise, just order a paint kit and everything you need will be delivered straight to your home. It's the perfect way to celebrate your Mom on Mother's Day—absolutely no experience necessary!

Mother's Day (Mom and son/daughter, families, children, etc)
Ylenia Mino was born at the foot of the Italian Alps in the small town of Ivrea. Since when Ylenia was little, she has had a significant interest in art. Every spare moment she had was dedicated to drawing or painting. During childhood she attended classes with an extraordinary Egyptian painter who specialized in oil painting. In the following years Ylenia also concentrated on classical studies such as Ancient Greek, Latin, Philosophy and History of Arts and graduated with a classical diploma. During this same time she developed a great passion for dance, acting, and singing. In March 2011 Ylenia debuted as a solo artist at the International Artexpo, New York. In the following years she exhibited world-wide in such places as Austria, London, Italy, Los Angeles, Canary Islands, New York, Ohio, Boston, Martha's Vineyard, and many more. She collaborates with art galleries, advise for art fairs, schools, universities, and the famous Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. Ylenia has been interviewed for several radio and TV shows. Her paintings have also been featured in many newspapers as well as in magazines, such as i-Italy, Descubra New York, the New York Optimist Magazine, Southern Sass Magazine, the British art magazine Aesthetica, and City to Country Magazine. Her paintings have won competitions. Ylenia travels all around the world to show her creations. Currently she is based in Los Angeles, CA. In all her paintings there is a story. Many of her paintings evoke wonder and joy and a generally very optimistic attitude toward life. Her desire as an artist is to provide pieces of sky, nature that people can take home and continue to enjoy the peace emanating from them. Ylenia has been painting for over 24 years and her dream is to exhibit in all countries of the world.
