Our Family

Art Retreats

We offer Art Retreats at amazing places around the country. We invite you to join the Vivi Magooo Family and share your experience with us!


Creating inspired art with our friends and family is just the beginning. Sharing this intimate experience has proven that our family is larger than we could have ever imagined.


As we strive to nourish our creative souls we will welcome new friendships and continue to strengthen the bond within the Vivi Magoo community.

Vivi Magoo is a family business. We are close-knit and enjoy each other’s company. We love spending time with our Vivi Magoo family, too, sharing creativity with each other and being inspired by all. In our fifth year of business, we continue to have fun planning and hosting our events.

In case you’re wondering where we came up with the name for the business…. Granddaughter #1 (Erin’s oldest) is named Viviana which somehow morphed into the nickname, Vivi Magoo when she was born. Simple story, but one we love repeating over and over again!

About us

Barb is the visionary – always looking for new venues, artist-instructors to teach and students to fill the seats. If you have any suggestions for where to hold an event or a new instructor to consider, Barb has a willing ear to listen and, when possible, will help to fulfill your dream. Erin is the keeper of the spreadsheets – making sure that everyone is where they want to be each day of class. If you ever have a question about your registration, or if you want to change or cancel a class, contact Erin. She’ll take good care of you!
