Ciara P.

Lead Paint Instructor

Let me know if this is okay!

Ciara is originally from Key West, Florida, and has been an honorary Canadian for a few years now. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a combined degree in anthropology and criminology in 2018. However, art has always been her passion! She is a self-taught artist, dabbling in traditional, digital, and textile mediums. She combines her love of culture, creating, and animals in her mostly watercolour personal pieces, often dipping into the surrealist style made famous by Salvador Dali. As an animal care volunteer, she is especially fond of the resident of the Calgary Zoo, featured in many of her paintings. In her spare time, she loves relaxing at home with her pets and her husband.

Jose A. Saenz

Jose A. Saenz

Founder - Assistant Paint Instructor

Originally having founded Open Market Pop-up Shop, Jose was determined to offer business owners the opportunity to test and launch their business ideas. Having to prove a concept himself so he could use as a model to show other business owners that all good ideas are worth pursuing he decided to create a paint instruction event business. Starting on the onset with adult-themed parties he quickly realized that this could be a great idea after all. After running numerous classes and after being inspired himself as a parent wanting to do activities with his own children, the idea of kids & parents paint parties was born. Since initiating this business in a few short months PopArts has instructed more than 300 paintings and is excited for growing this brand and concept even further. Stay tuned for future announcements.
