Companies We've Worked With


We invited Christiane to our office at Facebook in Austin for a painting/team building exercise. It was a huge success! She made it fun, useful, and memorable. I highly recommend her and Dirty Easel!

Peter Stern

Christiane with The Dirty Easel hosted our annual team building  event and it was a fabulous time!! She encouraged our creativity and the uniqueness of each piece of art work created by my coworkers was amazing.  It was a great time of bonding and fun.

Allison Zander

This was a super fun experience and I can’t wait to do it again! Painting without a plan is relaxing, fun, and much less stressful than comparing your painting to the artist teaching and everyone else’s canvas in the room.

Nicole Garrett

We loved it, the staff loved it. I will be bragging about you!

Christiane helped all of us get over our fears and create something each of us was really happy with.  She is a natural teacher, intuitive listener and creative business woman.
