Instructors work with students as a group and one-on-one to complete the painting with artistic flair. Light snacks are available, and each participant in the Art & Wine class receives two glasses of wine. BYOB classes generally accommodate 8–12 students, and classes with wine accommodate 5–10.
Chaos Art Gallery & Studio
Artist Mai O'Brion often greets visitors to her gallery with a mug of tea—and then immediately engages them in conversation. Over intermittent sips, she tells them that she and a few fellow artists once dreamed of a different, welcoming kind of gallery and artist collective. They soon banded together to found Chaos Art Gallery & Studio, reaffirming their commitment to showcasing accessible exhibits from local and international artists and mentoring members and students alike.
Inside the studio, Mai and other artists teach several painting classes for groups and individuals. Their most popular offerings are the two-hour BYOB Creative Painting Classes, which invite groups of students to paint one of several chosen subjects, or inspire them to create their own works. Over BYOB classes, students soak in direction as instructors share tips to the group and give one-on-one attention to individuals. Instructors also lead a five-week Art Intensive course, which starts students off with a black-and-white composition drawing and builds their technique until they can complete a painting from a live model.
