Twelve-year instructor Davina Mendoza teaches students the techniques needed to emulate a specific 12"x12" painting and provides all the necessary materials. Each class works from a different painting and uses various textural and expressive techniques. Classes take place at La Gran Tapa, where students enjoy appetizers and sangria. Classes run every other Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Live Art with Davina
A lifelong artist, Davina Mendoza helps her students discover self-expression and self-confidence through the act of painting. During fun two-hour sessions, she takes them step-by-step through the re-creation of a single piece of art, teaching the necessary techniques for them to start painting on their own. Classes may focus on a Van Gogh–like abstraction of water or a Hawaiian sunset. She serves appetizers during each session and invites her students to bring their favorite grown-up beverages, such as bottles of wine or juice boxes that feature adult situations or strong language. Davina recently appeared on UTTV to demonstrate the therapeutic possibilities of art and creativity.
