Welcome to our new YouTube series, Paint With Michele. MakerSpace Technician, Miss Michele, will provide a step-by-step guide to painting pieces of art. This Fall/Winter we will be focusing on famous locations from around the Coachella Valley.

Our first painting is an evening scene of the world famous Rancho Car Wash sign located in Rancho Mirage, California. While inspired by photos, this is an original work of art and approved for reproduction.
