Leslie Belkner and her staff of fellow artists know that not everyone feels like an artist. But she also believes that "everyone has creativity within themselves" as well as "an ability and a desire to express" that creativity.
At Paint Corner Art Bar, Leslie helps guests get creative juices flowing by pairing social painting sessions with gourmet snacks (such as cheese, charcuterie and truffle-flavored popcorn) and glasses of wine and craft beer. As attendees laugh, sip, and learn, they dress canvases with their personal take of one image.
A painter and graphic designer, Leslie used to own her own graphic design studio, served as the in-house designer for Sam Adams, and worked as a teacher at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. she reports that these past experiences help her connect inexperienced painters with the world of art.
