Puff, Pass and Paint offers a 420-friendly art experience in Denver


Like most artists, Denver painter Heidi Keyes, seen here, was looking to expand her artistic endeavors. Then, a friend told her to create a Colorado-style version of the popular Sip and Paint/Canvas and Cocktails events already happening: “Why not some kind of 420-friendly painting class?”
And with that, Puff, Pass and Paint was born, gaining steam and clients faster than Keyes could ever have imagined. Westword caught up with Keyes this week to find out more about how she managed to become a professional artist and what it’s like finding her way within the state of Colorado’s new marijuana laws.
