"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." - Pablo Picasso

I'm Lauren Lasater the founder, owner, artist, and art teacher at Colors & Cocktails: The Mobile Art Party! I launched Colors & Cocktails in February of 2014 in Virginia Beach, Virginia out of the desire of wanting a consistent career as a military spouse! As many of you know, military spouses have a very difficult time finding consistent work! After attending a painting event at a wine bar in Philadelphia, my wheels started turning when we found out we would suddenly (8 weeks!) be moving to Virginia Beach, Virginia! The birth of Colors & Cocktails was soon to happen! I created a company that I could take my art teaching abilities with me no matter where we get stationed! In Virginia, I grew Colors & Cocktails to 1,200 clients. In 2016, we received orders to Battle Creek, Michigan but moved to Kalamazoo, Michigan as Kalamazoo is a very art focused city! So, just like that, I transferred my company to Kalamazoo, Michigan where I currently live with my husband, Josh, who is still an active duty Supply Corps. Officer with the US Navy! I am having so much fun teaching drinkable glass painting at many of the areas most popular wineries and breweries! 

Thank you for stopping by Colors & Cocktails! Take a look around, let us know what you think, and how we may best serve you! We can't wait to sip, paint, and socialize with you!
