“I had the best time creating art "messsy monkey" style. No expectations, no reservations, just plain fun artistic collaboration between artists and friends. Learned some creative and colorful unexpected painting techniques. This experience not only helped rejuvenate my passion for painting it also opened my eyes to how wonderful it is to work as a team. A collaborative effort with tangible results that will help fund the CLPR at UC Berkeley.

Painting with a plunger and toilet brush are my new favs! Not to mention the wonderful staff that organized everything (including the cleanup). Forever grateful for the CRE8 experience.”
