I’m Sarah, with GRAZE. I am a wife, mother, singer, artist, lover of life, and self-proclaimed foodie. I started Graze because I believe that sharing food is a means of connecting people on an intimate level. My husband and I enjoy entertaining friends and family in our home, and often do so around a charcuterie board. There is always something for everyone, and it promotes a comfortable atmosphere where memories are made. From small dinners to extravagant weddings, I look forward to sharing my passion of grazing to help you create your one-of-a-kind experience…one to create memories for years to come.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: My Name is Jen, I was born and raised in Charlevoix.  I have never considered myself an artist. I have always loved art, but never thought I had the skill set to create beautiful work.  My Brother was an awesome artist & could draw anything. I was always so envious of his talents.  I was crafty and was super excited to live in a crafty world.  In College, I had to take one art class, part of the General Education Program.  I took Photography, because I thought anyone can take a picture and it’s a good life skill.  I loved being in the art department, I found myself doing my homework in the halls because I loved the smell of all the art supplies.  My photography professor saw my interest in art and pushed me into more classes; I resisted.  Turns out I did have a talent for art I just needed guidance.  It wasn’t something I could just do, I needed support and direction.  With a little help, I was off and running and ended up taking so many art classes I left college with a double minor in art.  Even with my degree I still never dove into painting, it was my last fear of art I needed to conquer.  About 3 years ago, I took a leap toward overcoming that last fear and I took a painting class. I picked up a brush and haven’t put it down since. I thoroughly enjoy watching people work through their hesitation or fear of picking up that brush and realizing they just painted something amazing.   Come On, Lets Paint!
